I am a longarm quilter, always interested in finding new designs. This book is full of them, many new variations on classic free motion designs and many originals as well. I love seeing quilting designs in photographs, and there are only a few photos in this book, on the covers and between sections, but the drawings are large and clear, a page describing how to stitch each one before a full page of the design demonstrating how to use it to fill space. And the photos that are included demonstrate how wonderful these designs look in a quilt. I have been trying out new designs from the book since it arrived, and I recommend it to anyone looking for lots of ideas. This one will be a constant resource for me.
