About the Author

It was the burning desire to create a quilt for her wedding that drove Leah Day to finally leap into quilting with both feet in 2005. While she'd wanted to learn for most of her life, quilting had always been too difficult a hobby to master on her own. Finally at the age of 21, she began actively taking classes and joined a local guild in order to gain the necessary skills. In 2007 with the birth of her son, Leah began a series of goddess quilts and started focusing on honing her free motion quilting skills. By 2009, Leah was frustrated with the limited designs and ideas for free motion filler designs, so she created a free, online blog called The Free Motion Quilting Project to share her new designs with the world. This blog then lead to a successful online quilt store at DayStyleDesigns.com. Leah is the author of three books featuring her free motion filler designs: 365 Free Motion Quilting Designs, From Daisy to Paisley, a book featuring 50 beginner designs, and From Feathers to Flames, a book featuring 60 intermediate level designs.

This book won't teach you how to do free motion quilting.
Stella Nemeth
The book is expensive but well worth it because you can go online to her website and watch how she quilts each design.
Patricia
Use of the book will enhance and broaden the variety of quilting designs used on any of our quilt projects.

This book goes beyond my wildest expectations...the only thing I can compare it to is an iPad: you don't realize how much you needed it until you have it.
I've been following Leah Day's project/blog for a long time and wasn't sure if I really "needed" this book since everything she posts is available for free. And it was expensive, much more than I recalled spending on a book before. But I really wanted to support her because she has given so much of herself and her talents to our quilting community so freely and unselfishly - and continues to do so with no end in sight! So when she posted in her weekly newsletter (almost as an afterthought) that amazon had decreased the book price, after much back and forth with myself, knowing that quilting is so much more than a passing fancy to me, I decided to make the plunge.
Well, the book arrived today ~ and I am sooo happy I bought it!!!! The book, while softcover, is sturdy, well-bound with a tight spine, and the photographs of each design are large, clear, delightful, gorgeous - and helpful! The pages are approx. 8-1/2" x 11" (unmeasured) and have either 1 large design block (color) photo or 2 slightly smaller design block (color) photos per page. Aside from the photo(s), each page has the title and Project Day # ( sequential). That it is, nothing else. Which is perfect because it doesn't detract from the quilting, which is the purpose of the book :) I can see the intricate details Leah stitched in each block! Holding this 252-page book in my hands, flipping through the pages, it provides me with what no computer screen will ever be able to - the up close, in your face details that I, as a lifelong sewist and experienced quilter (including FMQ) love & adore!!! It is inspiring as I think of the projects to be quilted!

Leah's idea to create 365 free-motion quilting designs and share them for free on her blog has revolutionised teaching machine quilting forever! This picture book is designed to be used in conjunction with her terrific website videos on how to quilt each one. Leah's enthusiasm shines through every blog post and encourages new and experienced quilters to have fun with free-motion quilting. As a machine quilting teacher, I highly recommend this book as an amazing teaching resource. Even if you don't think you'll use one of the designs on your quilt, you can use the basic idea and change it to make your own - I got three fantastic designs from just one of Leah's designs. I feel this book is an absolute MUST HAVE for every quilter, no matter how long you've been quilting. You'll be inspired and you'll want to create your own designs, having a lot of fun quilting them all. It's brilliant. Congratulations Leah!

My original title was Just Amazing! but I decided to tone that down a bit. Still the book, and the Free Motion Project really are amazing.

Leah Day is one of a group of machine quilting teachers who have changed the concept of quilting your own quilts on a home machine. She created the Free Motion Project because when she started nothing like it existed. And frankly, nothing like it exists even now although there finally are other books and websites that complement what she has done. I own a bunch of the books that are equally wonderful, but totally different from this one.

First, what this book and what it isn't. This book won't teach you how to do free motion quilting. You need to go to Leah Day's website for that. And it won't teach you how to do all of the wonderful patterns shown in this book. There is a free YouTube video for every one of them. You need to go to the web for that as well. Right now there are no negative reviews complaining about the book based on what it never attempted to do, but they probably will happen at some point, which is why I'm warning all of you about what you won't find here.

So what does this book do? First of all she has taken all the designs she developed and organized them in an order that will allow you to actually dig in and learn the designs. The easy ones are in the front. The hard ones are in the back. Second it gives you a catalog of the designs you can hold in your hand. I've accessed the videos from the online catalog. It can be done. But it isn't easy.

And second these are really good photographs. Much better than the ones I tried to print out at home from her online site.

And third, believe it or not, this is the cheapest way to have a copy of all of the designs. Paper and ink are not free.

Just an update. As Leah Day commented I am wrong about the designs being in order of difficulty.

I've been quilting for over 30 years and have bought many books about the subject. For the last 10 years, I have done free motion quilting but am not very good about creating new designs to quilt. This book is incredible as a guide to more designs then I will ever quilt in my lifetime. The photos and detail are excellent. But what is even more incredible is that the reader can access videos on Leah Day's website where she demonstrates how to quilt the design. This is invaluable information. There is not another quilting book on the market that provides this much help. I would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in improving their skills in free motion quilting.
