Default Help with the Quilters Bible by Linda Clements!

Pic of quilt

first time here, and new to patchwork and quilting. l've dabbled in the last couple of years, teaching myself to sew so I could make things for my new nephew. Simple quilts, bean bag, mobile, cushions and toys, that sort of thing.

Now I've ambitiously decided to try more complex quilting and would ideally like to make one for my mum as a gift.

I bought Linda Clements book online as it seemed a good place to start - and I admit, I did judge the book by it's cover, literally in this case. The quilt that is pictured on the cover slung over the chair, is pretty much exactly what I had in mind (and my mum would love it) - however the book hasn't turned out quite as idiot proof as I apparently need it to be!

I imagined there would be step by step instructions how to create each quilt deaign from start to finish. I can't actually find the design pictured on the front, within the book anywhere? Can someone point me in the right direction?

Sorry for being so basic! I can guess the steps from the image I can see, but knowing me... something will go wrong!

Welcome from Ontario, Canada. If you go to Bonnie Hunter’s Quiltville site, you can find instructions and patterns under her Free Pattern tab at the top of her site on the net. You might find a quilt there you like and her instructions are excellent.

I looked at the book quite a bit on-line and did not see any mentions of the cover quilt. It does look like a pretty good book all in all. Not a bad choice for a quilting book but not so good for that particular project!

I'm drawing a blank on the name... Birds in the Air variation? Lady of the Lake (variation)?

I've drawn out the basic block and attached that below, maybe someone will be able to find you a project on this.

Back when I started mostly all I had were block diagrams and no instructions.... things are better now if we can find you directions. We can, if you really want to get you started but it would be a lot more comfortable if we can get you something well written.

Me, I'd just babble and rattle off something about incomprehensible about being large and half sized HST... (HST = half square triangle.)

Welcome to the QB from SE Michigan. I am self taught too. The best first book I used was by Elenore Burns and was one of her sampler books. She has books for all levels of quilters from start to finish. I would check her out on line. She is great. Again welcome to the QB.

Ice Blossom was close. I just looked it up on Quilter's Cache.
Lady of the Lake.
