Default Hand piecing : book or Web resource?

A friend has asked me if I’ll help her to make her first quilt, using fabric from her late husband’s shirts. Of course I said I’d be honoured to help, but now she’s rather flummoxed me by saying she’d like to make it by hand. I’m a machine girl. I did a couple of hand-pieced projects several years ago, but my memories are vague. I don’t want to end up confusing her with poor instructions, so can anyone recommend a book or online resource that would give us the basics?

There are lots of youtube videos. I think watching is often more helpful than reading.

Jinny Beyer was the first one that came to mind also. You may be able to find her book at your community library or quilt guild library - Quiltmaking by Hand: Simple Stitches. She also has a CD but I couldn't find a source.

There are several books available here: https://www.allbookstores.com/book/compare/978097212128
