The best way to improve one's quilting skills is by trying new techniques and ways to use the basics in creative ways the patterns in Easy Quilts for Beginners and Beyond: 14 Quilt Patterns from Quiltmaker Magazine can show you just how easy this is. Beginners and experienced quilters are in for a treat with this series of easy quilt patterns that the simple cuts and shapes quilters are familiar with, and skillfully turn them into impressive designs that are sure to impress with their intricate looks.

One of the most important messages of the book couldn't be more true; just because a quilt is easy does not mean it's boring. After all, what's more exciting than being able to confidently create a pattern that uses techniques you're familiar with in totally new ways? That's exactly what quilters will find with each of the 14 easy quilt patterns included. For those who are newer to quilting and are looking for more guidance, this couldn't be better. All of the measurements and templates are provided, as well as some very helpful illustrations that demonstrate cutting and piecing techniques. The tutorials also include tips, color options, and notes that give quilters the chance to become more knowledgeable about the craft. Getting an idea about different aesthetics and how to properly complement them with colors and details can only be beneficial to new quilters. Readers can also go to the back of the book for some helpful "Basic Quiltmaking Lessons", which covers everything from basic supplies to preparing to present your quilt.

At the same time, experienced quilters are going to find just as much inspiration within Easy Quilts for Beginners and Beyond. A gorgeous pattern like "Asterisk" (pg. 7, shown on cover) immediately shows what makes this book memorable. The design uses one popular basic approach, strip quilting, in both the border and the main pattern to demonstrate how unique and complicated a pattern can look by employing the same techniques quilters are already familiar with.

Easy Quilts for Beginners and Beyond: 14 Quilt Patterns from Quiltmaker Magazine will make the perfect companion for quilters throughout their careers.
