    Wanted: Book Recommendation

    I'm looking for a book that shows me how to properly cut fabric, attach pieces, read patterns, etc. I guess I'm seeking a quilting bible! Do you have any recommendations? I see many online but not very many reviews.

    Thanks!

    Quilts Through The Seasons by Elinor Burns is Good. It gives step by step instructions. I got mine from Amazon, very reasonable.

    A book that has it all in one place is Quilting for Dummies. I got a copy from my local library before buying one. I still refer back to it from time to time. The Dummies series is great for any activity and anyone.
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    These are my two favorite inspiration books. I have made several quilts from them and find the directions great. Material Obsession and Material Obsession 2.

    This is the first of a series, but it gives you all the basics.

    "Quilters Complete Guide" by Fons and Porter is my favorite how to book. It seems to cover anything I have a question about. I have had it for a long time and it has really given me good information. I have "Quilting for Dummies" but don't use it for looking up information.
