so, i bought the all-in-one quilters reference tool. it's the answer to my prayer. practically every question a quilter could ask about technical matters in making a quilt is here--and answered. want to enlarge a clock, it's there. want to know how many sashing strips--it's there. yardage questions, cutting questions, sewing questions, all there and answered. there are tables comparing battings, recommending thread and needle size combinations, use for needle types, diagonal measurements for squares.
this is a treasure every quilter could use. if you've been envious of the knitter's, crocheter's and weaver's quides another publishing house puts out, this is your solution.
and it's comb bound so you can flatten it out while you cut your blocks. perfect! and the pages are sturdy, so they will last a long time and take a lot of frantic turning without tearing. and the illustratons are very good, too.
The book fits perfectly into my purse, and I NEVER leave it home. Benefits of this book have been listed in other reviews, but the one addition that I would like to note is the reference page that has standard sizes for mattresses, bedspreads, quilts, comforters, quilts with a pillow tuck, etc. This page has been used many many many times!
The information and layout found in this book far exceeds Quilter's Quick Reference Guide (That Patchwork Place), which I purchased first. Please do not waist your money on the Quilter's Quick Reference Guide. It is far to cryptic, and does not have the answers you need.
If you are a quilter, especially one that likes to create their own designs or change dimensions of projects, the All-In-One Quilter's Reference Tool IS THE BOOK for you!
This isn't an exciting little book, but it's a useful one. I guess it's the quilter's equivalent to the tables in the back of a good introductory cookbook, the ones that tell you how many tablespoons there are in a cup. You certainly won't get enthusiastic about it, but you'll be glad to have the reference when you need it! Need to figure out how much yardage you'll need for binding? Trying to figure out how many sashings you'll need for a quilt with 24 blocks? It's all in here.
Don't, however, assume that this little reference guide will teach you quilting basics. It's definitely a book of tables and charts, rather than an instruction manual. Yet, I think it's an inevitable -- and thankfully inexpensive -- book for you to have somewhere near your sewing machine.
