    Great variety of different quilting designs

    I am a novice machine quilter with many years of hand quilting experience. This book is great. It has such a nice variety of designs, some of which I've wanted/looked for in the past and had difficulty finding. I'll appreciate having them all in one place. The What You Can Do with These Designs section has great tips and ideas as valuable to have as the designs themselves. Next time i have problems getting a design from paper to fabric I'll have a reference with new options.

    For Hand Quilters Too!

    The designs in this book are lovely and suitable for hand or machine quilting. Some of the designs are simple and some are a bit more complex, but they are all simple to use with a bit of practice.

    I enjoyed thumbing through the pages of designs and Laura give design suggestions throughout the book.

    A great resource for any quilter's library.

    Excellent Step-By-Step

    In the words of my students, "OMG, I get it!" Within the first couple of pages I knew I could do this. Laura spells it out simply and completely - how to do EVERY single step. From setting up the book itself for easy use to the types of water-soluble stabilizer to transfer of design to actually doing the quilting - there is no question you will feel like you can create every single one of these designs.

    It never occurred to me to trace the design. Maybe that is an obvious step to a lot of people, but "free motion" to me means free-hand. Not so.

    There was such a moment of a-ha for me.

    Here's a really important note that makes a lot of sense to me, given the work I've done with dyslexic students and my readings on brain research.

    "Begin by tracing the designs with your fingertips or a pencil to practice the paths, and you will learn to stitch many of them free-hand. This tracing makes the pattern a physical memory and helps you quilt more smoothly." (page 8)
    Muscles have memory, and this one sentence tells me Laura really understands this process.

    As for the designs, there are the following sections: Globe Trotting, Scrolls and Angles, Wilderness, Oldtime Cowboys, Heroic Moments, Wetlands, Baseball, and Edge of Town. I'm looking at the headings, thinking "no way." Turns out there is at least one design in each section that I could incorporate without really even thinking about it.

    This is an excellent resource for both beginning and intermediate quilters, on a domestic or long-arm machine. I would think, if I still did hand quilting, that this would really free up design for me. I strongly recommend this book for your library.
