Quilt-opedia Goodreads Giveaway!

It’s no secret that this winter was an especially cold one. Even you crafters in Atlanta were hit with snow this season! Still, there’s nothing quite like curling up next to a fire while reading a book and snuggling under a nice warm quilt.

What’s that you say? You didn’t have a quilt? You want to make one for next winter but have no idea where to start? Then today is your lucky day!

Quilt-opedia is the only quilting reference you’ll ever need. (You know it’s true because it’s right there on the cover!)

For both hand and machine quilting, Quilt-opedia uses clear step-by-step illustrations to walk you through the very beginnings of choosing materials, preparing and cutting fabric and the intermediate and advanced techniques like adding edgings and displaying your finished quilt. Useful tips are found throughout to help avoid common mistakes. A directory of quilt blocks contains loads of ideas for variations, joining methods, and embellishments. Plus, invaluable instructions are given for how to draft blocks to fit the preferred size measurements of any project, big or small.

Also included are 30 projects complete with full step-by-step instructions, fabric requirements, clear photos and diagrams, plus pages of full-size templates. Author Laura Jane Taylor has thought of everything for your quilting needs!

Quilt-opedia hits the bookstores  on 3/11/2014.  You can also enter for a chance to win a free copy on Goodreads today!
