I’m so excited to tell you about a fabulous book, The Free-Motion Quilting Idea Book, written by my friend Amanda, an accomplished quilter and spokesperson for the Bernina longarm.
If you’ve ever finished a quilt top and wondered how to quilt it, this book gives you 155 Mix & Match Designs, broken down by allover designs, blocks, sashing, borders, and individual motifs, beautifully illustrated with step by step samples of how to quilt 30 traditional blocks.
The book is filled with quilting tips
plus a fun table runner with several quilting versions to get you started.
And to top it off, there’s an index of designs by block
and by design family, making it super easy to mix and match designs.Love, love the spiral binding!
The free-motion ideas can be easily quilted on both a domestic machine or a longarm, and for great practice and inspiration, you can download the companion Free-Motion Quilting Idea Sampler epattern made with the blocks in the book.
I joined the The Free-Motion Quilting Idea Book, Sampler, and App Facebook group and have started making the sampler using my Soul Blossoms fabric.
And guess what, you can win a copy of Amanda’s great book! Leave a comment and tell me what inspires you to quilt. I’ll chose a winner at midnight this Monday, 11/16
