What is Quilting Basics?
Quilting Basics by Michael Caputo is the perfect introduction to the quilting craft. The book is broken down into two easy to follow sections. In Section One Michael shows and explains the tools, fabrics, threads and wadding (batting) you will need to get you started on your first quilting project. As well as explaining the basics of colour theory and fabric patterns.
The second section encompasses a series of 12 workshops that teach you the fundamental skills of quilting. Each workshops ends with a project so you can put your newly learnt skills to the test. Once you have completed the workshop series you will be fully competent with joining pre-cut squares, sashing, piercing and paper piercing, different types of applique and using templates.
