Quilters want to finish their quilts—and that means doing their own machine quilting. In Free-Motion Quilting 101, teacher and quilter Ashley Nickels provides in-depth instruction on learning the technique of free-motion quilting, combined with simple small projects that reinforce the technique. Quilters will have fun while learning the necessary steps to complete a quilting project.
- Free-Motion Quilting 101 is divided into three parts—workbook-style practice; project session and in-depth reference for finishing a quilt
- 15 foundational designs
- 3 simple projects and 1 larger project that is a culmination of the techniques learned in the book
Free-Motion Quilting 101 is squarely on mastering the technique on a regular home sewing machine and will be the book new quilters pick up first to learn how to free-motion quilt successfully.
