    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

       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

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.

    Need a new outlet for all the sewing skills your student learned in the first "You Can Sew!" course? Quilting is the answer! This intermediate sewing course is another video-based, one-semester course with all the Modesty Matters sewing course advantages – clear, easy-to-watch, lots-of-closeups video instruction accompanied by an easy-to-follow, well-illustrated instruction manual. The manual has laminated covers and spiral binding, provides a (two-class-per-week) lesson plan and also serves as a record-keeping journal. There are 37 classes (31 with videos) which start with the basics – tools and fabric choices – and then teach six piecing patterns (rail fence, bow-tie, tulip, flying geese, grandmother's fan, and scrappy) as well as three appliqué patterns (heart, modest Sue, and grape bunch). Instruction then moves into the after-piecing quilt finishing skills ending with some quilter's "cheats" (simpler ways to create basic patterns). An extensive quilter's glossary means this volume will become a valued companion as a student progresses into an accomplished quilter. Four CDs accompany the manual. The first two are the 31 video classes, the third is a bonus (long arm quilting, cheats, and outtakes), and the fourth has quilting patterns and traceable templates. Quilt blocks and finished quilts are shown in full-color which helps to illustrate the importance of color choices. The skills taught in this course will provide a solid foundation for a lifetime of quilting. ~ Janice

    Know where your needle is at all times! Be safe and take your time! Remember that nothing has to be perfect! These are the authors' rules for children learning to sew for the first time. Color photos and clear directions make this one user-friendly book and a good choice for visual learners. Starting at age 5, you can teach your children to make basic stitches used in several simple project ideas. First they make a basic sewing kit and practice stitches, then they get to make a pin cushion and original stuffed toy. Later they can make a skirt, modify a t-shirt, even repair old clothes and toys. This book seems easier to use than some of our others that have more elaborate directions or projects. Age appropriate for little kids and non-sewing mothers. It may not be pretty at first, but it will be original and hopefully encourage future sewing enthusiasts! ~ Sara

    That's right: sewing is contagious! At least, it is when you expose yourself to fun and simple projects like the ones in this book! This is a great introduction to Stitches & Pins. The 25 projects featured are at the beginner's level; however, they build on the basics in order to help students become more proficient and independent in sewing. With the help of the step-by-step instructions and illustrations, your child will enjoy sewing useful items such as a drawstring purse, soothing lavender neck wrap, mittens, tote bag, throw pillow, sewing machine cover, and much, much more! Patterns are found in the back of the book, and few sewing supplies are needed in order to accomplish each project. 39 pgs, pb. – elise

    Give a child a sewing kit, and they'll sew for a day; guide them through this book, and they'll sew for a lifetime! Written by 11-year-old Sophie (with help from her parents!), A Kid's Guide to Sewing teaches machine basics and sewing techniques that your child will use almost every time they sew, such as applique, zippers, quilting, and much more. It gives tips for working with a wide variety of sewing materials and notions, giving your aspiring tailor or seamstress a foundation to build on. If they run into a problem, the book gives practical advice to work around it or how to remedy the problem, depending on the issue. Flexible projects teach you how to make things bigger or smaller depending on the need, instead of (literally) the one-size-fits-all approach. I was very impressed but this book and loved the colorful photos, fun projects, and practical learning. Your child will surely enjoy making the blanket, bag, keychain, scarf, or project of his choice. 144 pgs, sc.

    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.
