Sheila Sinclair Snyder’s Perfect-Fit: Pieced Borders is asking quilters to spend more time thinking about the little details that are used to finish a quilt; the borders. This book is not meant to just instruct you how to piece together beautiful looking patterns, but also how to design them especially for your quilt projects. If you’ve always wanted to take more risks with the way you design your borders, this is the best place to start. Once you’ve read up on the many approaches you could take to complementing your quilt pattern properly with your border, you can try one of the unique patterns included within this book to start practicing your newly obtained border design skills.
Like any good book about quilting, Perfect-Fit starts off by adding depth to its subject. Making borders isn’t as simple as it seems, but author Sheila Sinclair Snyder is able to simplify her processes and ideas with plenty of pictures and examples. Best of all, the book is filled with a series of patterns that each use different techniques within their borders. There’s no better way to learn than with practice, and these beautiful quilts will be the appropriate place to start.
You can improve both your technical quilting skills as well as your eye for design if you follow the advice and tutorials provided in Perfect-Fit: Pieced Borders. The editors at FaveQuilts only recommend the most helpful books and patterns that we believe we suit quilters of all skill levels, and we think this should be on every quilter’s bookshelf.
