Looking for a good beginning quilt book for yourself or someone else? Becoming a Confident Quilter is an excellent resource to get a novice quilter started and on the road to quilting confidence and enjoyment. Elizabeth Dackson provides essential information and guidance for collecting tools and practicing skills such as cutting with confidence, squaring up, sewing a 1/4' or scant 1/4" seam allowance, chain-piecing, and pressing. There are tips for making quilts scrappy and auditioning fabric. The quilts tend to be throw size with instructions for enlarging to queen size. The quilts in Becoming a Confident Quilter appeal to me because they are well-designed, creative, and look harder to construct than they actually are. The fourteen modern quilt projects begin with a variety of easy designs using squares and rectangles. The patterns progress in skill level to include on-point layout, half- and quarter-square triangles, diamonds, stitch and flip, wonky and improvisational techniques, and paper-piecing. I would highly recommend Becoming a Confident Quilter for those new to quilting; the simplicity of construction also makes the quilts great for gift-giving and charitable donations.
