I have to admit that I'm a Lori Kennedy fan. I've enjoyed reading her articles in a popular quilting magazine (can't remember which one) and I have especially liked her two Craftsy on-line classes "Divide and Conquer: Creative Quilting for Any Space" and "Creative Free-Motion Techniques from Doodle to Design". Because those classes covered so much, I guess I'm spoiled. When I read through Lori's new book, I was a bit disappointed because it seemed like it covered most of what was in the first Craftsy class...I was wanting more. Don't get me wrong, I like the book a lot and highly recommend it.
Since you probably haven't taken one of Lori's Craftsy classes (can you tell I highly recommend them? No, I don't get any kickback for saying that), let me tell you about the book ... It does a good job of explaining the supplies and set up of free-motion quilting and stitch quality without getting bogged down in the details. (Some books make my eyes glaze over when they keep saying the same thing over and over again.) Pictures throughout the book are excellent and you can easily see stitch detail. The designs are grouped into chapters of loops & lines, spirals, leaves, flowers, pictorial, and circles & squares. Within those groups each design is broken down and shown step-by-step. I really like that the basic design is shown and then shown with tweaks like echoing or intertwining the design with an additional line of quilting to create a completely new design. It takes each design from simple to outstanding. There are several leaf designs that are very nicely done. I especially like the oak leaf with acorns which is shown used within a block and as border quilting. There are 144 pages and the book has a spiral back so that the pages lay flat (although you cannot fold the book back on itself.)
This is a really good book for all quilters.
First you can see good information before you start free motion in this book, so what you need for free motion quilting, you can find as information.
Especially needle, marking tools and threads, it is really good for me to know.
There are lots of photos so it is easy to follow each designs.
You can have this book next to you always plus I think Lori Kennedy's blog will help you sometime.
