Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Long the object of derision by traditional hand-quilters, machine quilting has finally come into its own as an opportunity for expressing creativity in quilting. Freehand quilting involves quilting by machine, using the needle like a pencil to sketch designs as one quilts. Here, Sandbach emphasizes the importance of working with the right tools and uses five simple quilted projects to illustrate the types of free machine quilting appropriate for different types of quilts. A good selection of practice designs makes it easy to master the technique before embarking on a large project. As helpful as this book is, one can't deny that this is one technique better taught in a hands-on workshop. Nevertheless, for those not able to learn the technique firsthand, this is an excellent self-teaching aid. Recommended for public library quilting collections.

    This book made a machine quilter out of me!

    I am a beginning quilter, but this book gave me everything I needed (both in terms of instruction and courage) to be able to successfully machine quilt the first quilt I ever made. My second quilt was one of the patterns provided in the book, and it was easy and fun to do, but it looks amazing! Very clear instructions and excellent illustrations are provided.
