Skillfully drafted and endlessly varied, the wealth of stitching patterns in 250 Continuous-Line Quilting Designs ought to satisfy many quilters looking for interesting motifs to enliven a project. Author Laura Lee Fritz lays brief but good groundwork for planning out the pattern on the quilt top and transferring designs, then devotes virtually the entire book to the designs themselves. Her extensive repertoire of motifs is divided into seven categories that include animals, domestic objects, botanicals, and abstracts. From a simple geometric to a detailed creature to an intricate scene, these designs should please quilters of various skill levels. --Amy Handy
From Library Journal
Continuous line images, when quilted as dark lines on a light fabric or in white thread on a dark fabric, can create a striking effect especially on quilted garments. Here, Lee give the quilter some 250 free-hand quilting designs, along with a gallery of finished pieces illustrating how the designs might be used effectively. The designs are grouped into broad subject areas like birds, flowers, animals, and textures and feature clean lines that are simple for the nonartist to follow. One can see these designs being used by other needleworkers, especially in embroidery pieces. Incidentally, the "long-arm quilter" referred to in the subtitle is a special quilting machine. Recommended for public libraries.
