Stitching quilts by hand not only connects us to the long tradition of quilt making but is also oh-so-modern! The technique is portable and can be done while on-the-go. It is a relaxing, meditative process that can also be shared and enjoyed in a social group. The Handmade Quilt provides a complete learning experience for new quilters. Starting with basic techniques, a needle and thread, and the reader’s own two hands, the author teaches how to create a heirloom-quality quilt that is a beautiful sampler of stash-busting blocks.
