I recently had questions from a new quilter asking about machine quilting, marking, etc and I thought I'd share these 4 quilting books from my collection. I have LOTS of books on quilting but these are probably the ones I'd recommend to a new quilter.
Heirloom Machine Quilting was my first book purchased that just dealt with quilting and it's a great reference book.
I love all the books from the Rodale Successful Quilting Library and the Fast and Fun Machine Quilting has lots of good information and tips.
The Easy Machine Quilting book is from Rodale too and has step by step lessions and projects to machine quilt.
Dianne Gaudynski's Guide to Machine Quilting also has basic quilting information and lots of great tips although from the cover you might think it was a book just for advanced quilters.
All the links but the one to the Successful Quilting Library will take you to an Amazon page where you can actually look inside the books.
