Overview

Get your money's worth from your sewing machine and use the decorative stitches that came with it! Take your quilts to the next level of creativity by using the decorative stitches built into your sewing machine. These stitches were created to mimic hand embroidery, and most of them do that and more. Karen shows how to find multiple uses for a single stitch, how to combine stitches, and how to best use threads and stabilizers. The 11 projects are intended to serve as practice for getting to know what your machine can do, and to see how to use each project's stitches in ways unique to your own artistic vision. Stitches are cleverly grouped into forms, such as flowers, leaves, stems, bushes, ferns, grids, shapes, and fillers. Mixing and matching stitches, thread weights, and items from these groups gives the reader unlimited options for spicing up their quilts. Written as a companion volume to Karen's first book, readers who love to experiment will find that this book, written for any type of sewing machine, can stand alone.
