About Debbie Shore’s Sewing Room Secrets: Quilting
Debbie Shore invites you into her sewing room to make 10 quilting projects to build your skills and confidence.
The book is packed with hints and tips for successful quilting and will walk you through every aspect of your sewing journey. The book begins with a section on Sewing Room Essentials: a peek in Debbie’s sewing room, a guide to all the tools and materials you might need, a labelled diagram of a sewing machine, and in-depth sections covering various types of wadding/batting and interfacing, fabrics and threads. The book contains a comprehensive trouble-shooting section to reassure and guide beginner sewists when they encounter problems, along with a glossary to debunk any unfamiliar terms.
The second section of the book, Sewing Room Techniques, covers all the skills you need to know, such as pressing, chain piecing, English paper piecing, different quilting styles and binding, and explains them step by step. The book features 10 projects that build up in difficulty, incorporating the techniques you learn as you go. Start simple with a place mat and then build up yours skills as you create an English paper-pieced tote, a baby quilt and a clutch bag.

As always with Debbie Shore, this book is simple to understand and has great projects. This time she is talking quilting, with tips and techniques from the beginnin to the end of your quilting project. There are several projects, bags, table runners and of course a traditional quilt. You can use your scrap fabric for the smaller designs, but the Humbug Hexie Quilt which is the last project really does cry out for something special. It is beautiful. The book begins with advice on tools, threads and fabric and continues with ‘how to’ on sashing, binding and sandwiching your projects. Each method is accompanied with a written guide and completed with step by step photography in full glossy colour. I always recommend Debbie Shore, she is a perfect teacher for the beginner but also the advanced stitcher will be able to use her expertise to revisit long forgotten techniques. There are full sized templates included to hjelp you and I guarentee that your project will have a professional and beautiful finish. 5/5
