Overview

Responding to what today's quilters really need, this seventh book in the Dear Helen Series is an evolution of experiences from a career of quilting and teaching. Enhance your quilt top with this expansion of Helen's reliable patterns, offered in sizes ready to trace, scan, or photocopy. Learn how to mix, match, and adapt your patterns! Over 100 quilting patterns have been grouped into the following seven categories: More Helen's Hints II, Framing Ideas, Traditional Patterns, Continuous-Line, Beautiful Scrolls, Grids VII, and Secondary Designs. Pattern pages feature placement diagrams, combinations, helpful hints, and a range of designs that can easily be adapted from hand to machine quilting, and vice versa. Fifteen secondary designs, including edge-to-edge quilting patterns, illustrate what happens when you combine multiple repeats into new placement possibilities. See how framing techniques help to establish the main motifs in your quilt. Over two dozen continuous-line patterns are included for use on home quilting systems and professional quilting machines. Also, discover how to manipulate a pre-purchased stencil to fit into the corners, blocks, and borders of any size quilt.
