Quilting for Show: A Practical Guide to Successful Competition Quilting

From selecting various materials to making the final fold, this handy guide explains in-depth the keys that separate award-winning show quilts from the rest. Newcomers to the show world will learn how to improve upon basics such as blocking and adding a sleeve, as well as how to make machine quilting look like hand quilting.

A wide range of contributors—including some of the nation’s best quilters, a quilt appraiser, and multiple professional judges—all contribute trade secrets to winning competitions and avoiding common mistakes.

With a bonus DVD demonstrating how to perform specific techniques, novices and seasoned show quilters alike will be able to produce top-quality quilts with ease.
