Reviews - What do customers think about Simple Tips For Quilters (LIFE'S LITTLE BOOK OF WISDOM)?
Happy quilting Apr 23, 2010
This is not a how-to book for quilters. It has no patterns, templates or designs. It's a small book with 1 tip per page plus an inspirational quote on the opposite page.
It appealed to me because I haven't quilted in awhile and needed the reminder. Also, it brings home the point that quilts are a labor of love.
Great little reminders! Mar 22, 2010
This little book contains some very good tips on quilting along with some very good tips for living!
Disapointed! Nov 9, 2009
This book is more than half Bible quotes. I would expect a book full of tips for quilters, hence the name. Really did not find much useful, although Bible quotes were very nice. I would not recomend to anyone.
Not A Serious Quilting Instruction Book Sep 3, 2009
"Simple Tips For Quilters" measures 6" x 4 3/8". There's one quilting tip on approximately every other page. The pages in-between are filled with quotations from the Bible and a few from famous people. I received this book on Wednesday around 5pm and finished reading it by 8am the next morning.
Here are some sample tips randomly picked:
"A small photo of the quilter photocopied onto fabric and sewn to the back as part of a quilt label makes a nice memory jogger."
"A touch of lip balm makes thread easier to push through the eye of the needle."
"To control pests, periodically check quilts that are stored in dark, warm places. Occasionally shake them out and air them while vacuuming the area."
"When the quilting process seems long, think about something pleasant to make the time pass faster. Put in a movie to listen to or play an audio book."
"Because of the chemical process of manufacturing silk, it rots faster than other material. Avoid silk if you want a lasting quilt."
I did find a few tips I would like to implement, but finding them again will be difficult. There's no organization or index, so you will have to flip through page by page to find what you are looking for.
If you are looking for a serious quilting instruction book, I highly recommend "Complete Guide To Quilting" by Better Homes and Gardens. It is an excellent resource that covers everything from types of needles to hand applique' to machine quilting, old techniques and new. It is superbly organized with a fantastic index. I've always found exactly what I'm looking for in a matter of seconds.
