SEE WHAT'S INSIDE:
Chapter 1 | First Steps
Get the fundamental questions, such as "which machine will be best for your needs?" and "what size machine should you buy?" answered in this chapter. You will get a better understanding of how a longarm quilting machine works as well as a list of important supplies you will need to get started. This chapter also covers some basic troubleshooting.
Chapter 2 | Motifs
One of the most exciting chapters of the book, this section is a directory of 23 motifs that you can create on your longarm machine. These include loops, swirls, paisleys, archways, feathers, and many more!
Chapter 3 | Doodling & Drawing
A great advantage to longarm quilting is the freedom you have to make your own designs! This chapter covers how-to create your own quilt designs first on paper, then on fabric. You will learn to develop not only your personal expression, but also your hand-eye-coordination, which is highly important to longarm quilting.
Chapter 4 | Pieced Projects
A quilting book would not be complete without some projects. Here you will get 3 quilt patterns to test out your longarm quilting.
Chapter 5 | Gallery of Quilts
The motifs and techniques taught in this book can be applied to any quilt—from traditional to modern, from large block quilts to intricate paper-pieced quilts. This gallery features over 15 quilts that Teresa quilted (and for many made) to give examples of how you can finish your quilt. You will get a shot of the full quilt as well as a detailed image and description to see just how the quilting was done.
