Question: Internet or Books?
A friend asked me today if there's a rule book for quilting. She's a bit overwhelmed by all the information available online: articles, blogs, youtube videos, websites, even live webcams.
Are there just a couple sources you would recommend for a new or relatively new quilter?
When I started I relied heavily on this forum and on one book, The Better Homes and Gardens "Complete Guide to Quilting". All the basics are there. That's the official rule book for me.
I still cherish my signed copy of Jinny Beyer's "Quiltmaking by Hand" although I will never be a handquilter. It's all beautiful, but it's just too slow for me!
Now I usually go directly to Google if I have a question about anything, including quilting. I regularly visit the websites of Leah Day, Angela Walters and Fresh Lemons.
What are your favorite resources and teaching aides?
