C&T Publishing sent us a great book First Steps to Free-Motion Quilting by Christina Cameli.
I have to say, I’ve reviewed lots of free motion quilting books. Of all the ones I have seen, I rank this one in the top two.
The thing I like so good about this one is that it walks you through the stitches and free motion quilting then the author offers some great fun practical projects that will allow readers to practice those very stitches. Most of the projects are small and are great confidence builders.
Here’s an example. This chair cushion is easy to construct yet gives great opportunities to practice a few of the free motion stitches.
Small successes on projects like this will give quilters the boost to try bigger and harder projects.
This little purse is my favorite project. I can see me making this for a little someone. I can also see me making it for a baby present and filling it with little fabric fish…so cute!!
Can you believe that are 24 projects packed into the book??
I’d love to show you more projects but I got mine as an ebook and it’s virtually impossible to take pictures and show the projects off.
This is great for beginner wanting to learn to free motion quilt. It’s great for intermediates who want to add a few more stitches to their repertoire. It’s great for expects as the projects are just plain CUTE!!
I’ve done quite a bit machine quilting and there were a few stitches in there that I hadn’t seen that I want to give a try.
C&T Publishing has offered to give a free ebook copy to one of our readers..want a chance?? Just leave a comment here and we’ll pick a winner next week.
