Love Leah Day's 365 FMQ program and followed it online. The book shows full color and clear examples of each design. It does NOT show how to do each design. To get that info, you need to go to her website and search for that numbered example. There she shows in exquisite detail how to stitch each pattern. You could go online and print off each design individually, but candidly it is not worth it - that is a LOT of paper to print. Use the book to find the design you want, then create it yourself, or get more detail from the website. It has all designs set up to compare quickly so you can find the type of quilt design you want in your project. This book is in my "KEEPER" library of quilt books.
This book is the result of the year's worth of free motion quilting patterns as seen and explained in depth on Leah Day's website Free Motion Quilting Project. She is a young genius whose stitching versatility and way with teaching has inspired thousands of quilters - some many decades older than Leah, and some younger. Full of vivaciousness and energy, the girl has been an inspiration to me for sure. I bought the book, and along with that you always can see the videos on her site and on You Tube. Each one of these patterns is talked about and taped in action and can be seen and used without copyright complexities. Leah has a unique approach to making a living while sharing her wonderful designs and teaching with all.
Beautiful designs, I'm just returning to the quilting scene and have always quilted by hand, well not anymore!
Very inspirational, hope to try many of the designs. I have another of her books & often refer to it, and have incorporated some of her methods. To be honest, the simple beginner ones but I do love her videos & explanations.
