Every quilt in Sew + Quilt uses just four graphic, geometric, and beginner-friendly blocks–log cabin, half-square triangle, rail fence, and string. I added five embroidery stitches as the tools to teach beginners (or inspire experienced quilters who need to make a baby quilt or birthday gift, fast!). Some quilts can be pieced in a single day, and others are much more of a labor of love, but the simplicity that binds them leaves so much space for your creativity.

“This book is fabulous, kudos to Susan! Ideal for beginners, but also helpful for experienced stitchers like me who are self-taught. Susan covers all the essentials about tools and techniques in clear, well-illustrated text, and with dozens of creative project ideas for embroidery and patchwork. A must-have for any library!”
