Mastering the variety of quilting techniques can be a challenge, but Quilting from Little Things by Sarah Fielke provides quilters with an easy way to try out new methods, textures, and colors, and in the process, build upon their skills.

Inside you'll find ten pairs of quilts that each provide a different lesson in quilt-making. By first constructing a small dolly quilt, you'll gain confidence in the techniques that enable you to make its larger companion quilt. These beautiful quilts, big and small, provide the opportunity to practice traditional quilting techniques such as creating wedges and flying geese blocks, and experiment with new, less conventional methods, such as deconstructed piecing. Sarah also shares her needle-turn appliqué and hand-quilting techniques, which give her quilts their contemporary and unique style.

Discover how, from little things, big and exciting things can grow.

If you're looking for a quilt book with lots of patterns and projects, this probably isn't the book for you. But if you want something that will take you step-by-step through different techniques, then this is a great book. She tackles one skill at a time, starting with more basic ones and ending with more complicated patterns. She gives two patterns for each technique - the first pattern is a small practice project ("dolly quilts") and then provides a large project (a throw, twin or queen sized quilt) using the same techniques.
The techniques she covers, in order from the start of the book are: row by row construction, strip piecing, deconstructed piecing, applique with bias strips, flying geese and foundation piecing, inset piecing, needle-turn applique, using wedges, step-down piecing, and feathered blocks (giving you twenty projects total). The book includes some nice instructions on choosing fabric, quilt basics, layout and assembly. The book also comes with full-sized patterns (I wouldn't cut them out of a library book, but they would be nice to photocopy and use without having to shrink or enlarge).
