I have wanted this book for ages, and got it as a Christmas present. It is called 'How to Create an Heirloom Quilt' by Pauline Ineson.
Pauline teaches machine sewing for one of the sewing shops here in the UK, and also has a sewing group local to where she lives. The book shows you how to make quilt blocks, using the Quilt as You Go method, and you get to learn machine techniques to get the most from your sewing machine.
You don't have to make the quilt, though. It is useful for heirloom sewing, smocking, cutwork.... and several small projects included too.
I can't wait to get started.

That sounds great. I'm totally interested in quilt as you go, not having a large harp machine, and not wanting to pay the long arm prices. Thanks for the info on the book.
