       This book breathes fresh air into the timeless craft of quilting with 16 fun projects that aren’t as intimidating as a king size quilt (though several simple bed quilts are included for when you’re ready). While this book doesn’t cater to younger students as much as some of our other books, it is perfect for an older student or adult learner. There is a wealth of information that is presented clearly with lots of colorful photos and illustrations, and projects could easily be made a little more kid friendly with adult supervision and funky, colorful fabrics of the child’s choosing. Learn a mix of hand and machine quilting while passing along the craft to the next generation. 122 pg, sc. – Laura

    This beautifully-illustrated, softcover book tells the true story of Martha Ann. After a childhood in slavery, Martha Ann's freedom was bought and she moved to a settlement in Liberia that was protected by England under Queen Victoria's rule. Martha Ann dreamed of visiting the queen to thank her for the queen's protection, though many laughed at the idea. She worked to save her money in order to make a beautiful quilt for the queen. Will she realize her dream? - Laura

    A video for beginners that actually starts at the beginning! Kids from about middle school or high school could watch this video and make a project with some supervision. Each step is clearly shown and the materials are listed up front. The hostess uses a sewing machine and assumes the user has basic knowledge of how to use one. The video production is nothing fancy but does a nice job demonstrating techniques used to make a quilt. Tools needed to get started include: rotary cutter and mat, pins, scissors, rulers, masking tape, basting spray, starch, and a basic sewing machine. Fabrics are needed for the top and bottom pieces and then the batting for in between. ~ Sara

    Quilting has such a history in America. It also requires math skills to create a pattern! This set allows your creative and visual learners to explore and express their flair for color and pattern. In the kit are 6 reproducible, quilt 8" square patterns. They are a mix of squares and triangles that look familiar, but I couldn’t tell you the traditional pattern names! The patterned papers are already cut into squares (1.25") and triangles. You get 5 patterns and a solid in complimentary oranges, blues and greens, totaling 1140 pieces. Glue pieces to the pattern paper or make new combinations again and again. Essentially a mosaic: what a fun way to teach geometry to littles! You may even spark an interest in quilting with fabric. ~ Sara

    Using one or four patch blocks, children learn to use a quilt plan, use a template to draw and cut the shapes, and with the skills learned in My First Sewing Book, stitch a pieced quilt with sashing strips and blocks. The quilt is finished by attaching the back with the pillow-making process. The three pieces of the quilt are fastened using yarn ties so that the quilt can be "in use" while quilting each square. Kit includes a poster board template, quilt plans to color, and ideas for more quilts. - Stephanie

    When I wanted my daughters to learn to sew, I didn't trust my own knowledge of how to do it right and arranged for them to have private lessons. It was great! But expensive. This one-semester course would have been much better, I think. All you need to go from complete beginner to knowing you have the ability to tackle any basic pattern is right here. Well-done video instruction (the presenter has a pleasant voice and manners) allows you to repeat any part if you didn't quite get it or need to review later. A complete course manual parallels all video class material as well as provides additional content (like a fabric chart) and illustrations. Patterns for both adult sizes as well as child (pre-teen) sizes of a classic A-line dress (or nightgown) are provided for the final project. [Patterns are PDF files for you to print. Patterns will need to be taped together (adult sizes will have lots of taping) but the patterns are very sturdy and can be used repeatedly without the frustration of ripped tissue.] Like I said, it's all here. And it's non-consumable – you can use it for multiple children at one time – or sequentially.

    The 65 video lessons (5-6 per week) are 5-10 minutes each and include sewing machine fundamentals (i.e. threading properly, getting the correct thread tension, choosing the right stitch), different fabric types and "personalities", coordinating colors, how to read a standard pattern, how to measure your body correctly, and how to sew using a straight stitch and a zigzag stitch. Assignments are given via the video and the student is expected to do additional reading in the manual. With many lessons the student is encouraged to make journal entries as well as a sample to put in a binder thus creating a class record – and providing the basis for assessment (if you wish). Although instruction is simple and very understandable, it's also quite comprehensive and everything you would expect from a beginner's course including linings/interfacing, casings/hems, gathering, sleeves, buttonholes, buttons, and zippers. It all comes together in the final project that could be a matching mother/daughter dress if you preferred. Several field trips (such as to a local fabric store) are encouraged.

    The binder/manual has sleeves for the DVDs, an extensive class syllabus that gives the topic, skill, classwork, and homework or follow-up for each class as well as a materials list. Periodic skills assessments involve sewing projects – pin cushion, simple apron, and simple skirt. All of this leads up to the final project – a classic A-line dress (or nightgown, if you prefer). Machine sewing skills are emphasized so a well-running basic sewing machine is necessary. Five DVDs provide the lessons and a sixth CD-ROM provides the pdf pattern files (patterns include child sizes plus adult sizes). The 189-page binder manual includes a thorough glossary of sewing terms as well as the detailed information that parallels the videos. ~ Janice

    Minna would love to go to school, but she has no winter coat. When the Quilting Mothers find out, they determine that she will have a coat by wintertime. As they quilt scraps of cloth together, Minna gets to hear about all of the wonderful stories attached to the old, worn out clothes they came from. Every day she runs home, eager to see how her "coat of many colors" is coming along. Minna can't wait until she can share the coat with her classmates on her "sharing day," but her classmates have a very different perspective on her rag coat. hc.
