Supplies:

Fiskars Rotary Cutting Set

Patterns:

Yellow Brick Road by Alkinson Designs

This is one of my favorite patterns. I made it for my middle sister a few years ago and she absolutely loved it!

Feather Bed Charm by Black Cat Creations

My post apocalyptic project! At my sweet husbands request, Im ordering the final supplies to have this king-size quilt ready to make by hand. He loves my quilting so much, he advises on colors and patterns that he likes. It will be especially special if I have to work on it in a TEOTWAWKI environment!

Books:

Quilting for Dummies

Yes, I actually own and use this book. It is well written with clear and easy to understand instructions. It also provides several projects for beginners.

The Essential Quilter Project Book by Barbara Chainey

Any of Barbara Chaineys books are good. She is very easy to understand, provides clear instructions, and her patterns and projects are lovely. If you are concerned about cutting and piecing blocks making a quilt top, this book has a wonderful section on whole cloth quilting.

Better Homes and Gardens: Teach Yourself to Hand-Quilt

This is a simple and inexpensive how to book. It covers the basics from supplies to instructions and provides a few projects for beginners.
