Updated on February 4, 2013

Book Review

200 Quilting Tips, Techniques and Trade Secrets by Susan Briscoe is a great book to read through to learn different quilting techniques. I learned a lot of new tricks of the trade that I was not familiar with before.

The author is great about showing the fun side of quilting and making each step enjoyable. The book featured wonderful pictures of different already made quilts and quilt blocks. The most informative part of the book for me was the section on quilt design planning.

Who I Would Not Reccomend This Book To

Susan Briscoe wrote the book 200 Quilting Tips, Techniques and Trade Secrets in a fashion to help those of a wide quilting range.
