Free Motion Patterns
This is the second set of patterns designed by Mary Covey that I have owned and I LOVE them!!! I do free-motion quilting with my home sewing machine and these patterns help me be precise as well as creative. They are easily adaptable to many situations and I would highly recommend them.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

The place to start for finishng your quilt
Between the instructional booklet and all the patterns for quilting a quilt, you will have all the information you need to complete your quilt in FOLLOW-THE-LINE QUILTING DESIGNS. The booklet that comes with the patterns explains how the quilt designs are laid out and defines the markings found on each pattern. As any quilter knows, sizing patterns are not the easiest thing to do but Ms. Covey has provided areas where you can lengthen or shorten a pattern with ease. If that is not the option you want to take, you can use her suggested Quilter¿s Assistant Proportional Scale and then make photocopies to the size you want. Marking ¿ which way to go. There are pens, pencils, tape, chalk or even a no-mark method. Read over the options and choose the one that works for the quilt you are doing. Don¿t forget the 3 B¿s of finishing ---- backing, batting and basting. The pages devoted to these will make this an easy job. And finally, will you quilt by hand, machine or long-arm? The suggestions given here will make this part of finishing the quilt easier too. The patterns come in a plasticized package. There are 19 designs from a farm to baby to geometric designs to name a few. You should be able to find one to fit the theme of your quilt. They come in corners, blocks and borders so every place you need a pattern, you will have one that is made for that area and since the designs are all in continuous-line motifs, you will not have to stop until you are finished! Happy Quilting.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
