From the PublisherBefore selecting a quilting design for a quilt, Barbara determines into which of four categories the piece falls; children’s/youth, traditional, contemporary, or art. She then asks herself questions on how the quilt will be used, and what stitching designs and colors of thread would best enhance it. With detailed photos of a wide variety of her finished quilts, she shows how the answers to these questions have assisted her in making the perfect free-motion or continuous-line design choices for each individual piece. A collection of line-drawn stitching designs is included to help you find quilting solutions for your own work.
