Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

An award-winning quilter known for her traditional-style quilts, which are machine quilted but have the look of detailed hand quilting, Gaudynski here includes methods for machine quilting that she has developed over the years. Gaudynski covers every aspect of quilting with a sewing machine, from choosing equipment and supplies to marking and quilting the design and finishing the quilt. Of special note are the sections on free-motion quilting and dealing with the bulk of a quilt in the machine. The text is rounded out by three machine-quilting projects designed to illustrate techniques taught in the book. Highly recommended for all but the smallest quilting collections.

I am a relatively new quilter... started only 3 years ago and just started doing my own machine quilting.
Harriet Hargrave's book of Heirloom quilting by machine are great because it opens your mind. But this book fills in all of the details like HOW to handle the quilt thru the machine. My favorite tips are about making a "mashed potato gravy well" of fabric, and how to go about tackling a quilting project (did you know not to start out stippling?)!!
My quilting has improved SO MUCH imediately after I read this book. I found out why I was getting broken threads and knots!! I really recommend this one!!

I have purchased every book on machine quilting and this is the best! There are pictures which show you how various threads will look in your machine quilting design. There is a list that tells what needles to use with what threads. This book also goes into detail on how to stipple and machine quilt feathers and wash your finished quilt. You will learn much from this book even if you are an experienced machine quilter.

If you can only afford one "machine quilting" guide book, then let it be this one. Author takes you through every step of machine quilting. A must read BEFORE you quilt that top! Great for the beginner and experienced quilter as well. Tips and techniques throughout; Diane leaves nothing to question. Read about "plowing through a brick wall" or why you get "bird's nest" under your stitching. Explains in detail which feet to use for what purpose. If you have patchwork tops ready and have dreaded the quilting; instructions learned here take away the fear. With practice, you too can machine quilt with excellent results.

I had dreaded beginning to machine quilt -- I found the whole prospect intimidating. Then, I bought this book. It is terrific! It is written in such a friendly and sympathetic tone that it helped to assuage my fears and get me quilting. The information is clearly presented with all sorts of helpful tips. Now, when I sit down to machine quilt I keep this book close by and recommend it wholeheartedly to all those reluctant machine quilters out there.

After purchasing this book I read it cover to cover. I found the tips most helpful, especially the tips on thread, needle and tension adjustments. I was immediately able to apply the techniques to a quilt I was working on and I was amazed at the rapid improvement in my skills. I have only been machine quilting about 3 or 4 years now and this book helped me make the biggest improvement jump in a short period of time. By the way, that quilt I was working on...it took the blue ribbon at this year's state fair!

It seems like every time I sit down to my machine to quilt I find myself reaching for this book to check on something or just for a refresher on technique. I would highly recommend it for anyone who wants to get into machine quilting. The author's quilts that are pictured in the book are gorgeous and inspiring, too!

This book is worth its weight in gold. It will totally take the mystery out of machine quilting. The author breaks it down to the finest detail - so, if you have never machine quilted before, you will be able to do pretty good on your first quilt. I re-read the book each time before I begin a new quilt - and learn something each time.
