    Machine quilting on your sewing machine

    While taking a machine quilting class at the local quilt shop, the instructor informed the students of this book which has been a wonderful guide for her over the years. She found it to be the most comprehensive and doable book on the market for machine quilting on a short-arm sewing machine. I would have to agree. Plus, it's by a Michigan resident...nothing better.

    Worth the Investment!

    This is an excellent investment of an at-home study course for beginning quilters. The introduction is an interesting brief essay on the history of machine quilting, then begin the lessons. Instructions are easy to understand with colorful examples to imitate. The writing style is conversational, gradually guiding the student through the steps and practice required to produce quality quilting. I love this book!
