Editorial Reviews

Review

As Angela says in her introduction, 'A meander is a quilting design that is repeated to fill in an area. It's one of the most versatile designs to learn. A couple of meandering designs in your arsenal are all you need to quilt almost any quilt. After a good introduction to the basics, Angela launches into a step-by-step explanation of the basic meander. Her instructions are clear, well illustrated, and very encouraging. At the end of each section she includes a question and answer section with helpful hints to improve your quilting. Angela then moves on to somewhat more advanced designs such as loops, the swirl, paisley, leafy and feather meanders. For each design, explanations are given for how to fill an area or use meanders in a border or combine them with different designs. She finishes with a section on 'Improv Quilting' where you get to practice combining all the designs to create a uniquely interesting look to your quilts. As with any technique, practice makes for a gradual improvement every time you sit and give it a go. (The Canadian Quilter, Winter 2017)

As always, Angela's encouraging style invites quilters of any level to try their hand at machine quilting. She clearly breaks down the process of creating a variety of meanders suitable for quilts of any style. I highly recommend this book for quilters who wish to improve their skill at meandering in a variety of ways as well as for those wanting to better understand how to successfully fill a space with quilting. (Machine Quilting Unlimited, January/February 2018)

Best-selling author Angela Walters is a masterful quilter. Her book starts with the basics of quilting and supplies needed. She helps you master meandering with 8 different stitching patterns plus variations with step-by-step visual instructions and samples. (McCall's Quick Quilts, February/March 2018)

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic book to learn meandering for (not complete) beginners. Thoroughly recommended!
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on April 17, 2021
I have been quilting for about half a year when I wrote this, where I have been taking online lessons from the marvellous Philippa Naylor and so far I have made 4 quilts and 3 of them include Free Motion Quilting (FMQ).

Eventhough there's a superb class with so many designs on FMQ, it only touches upon basic meandering very briefly and I wanted to learn more variations.
This book has 7 types of meandering (basic, loopy, swirl, swirl hook, paisley, leafy and feather) and further variations within each type. The last chapter is on Improv design which combines all of the 7 types. The writer also uses pictures on the directions of movement very clearly in a different colour so it is a great book for people who aren't naturally artsy like myself to learn this. Also pointers on preventing gaps and troubleshooting. As such I'll be using this book over and over for reference and when planning me next quilting.

I would suggest drawing on paper first, because if you get stuck you can easily start over again until you are somewhat ready to tackle them on a quilt sandwich. (There is a chapter on tools and materials required).

However, if you have never done any FMQ before I suggest you get some lessons, best hands on or if it's not possible then online or at least watch youtube (and join a quilting group on FB for support) and be prepared to not do it right the first time. You might break many needles or the thread bunches up or your machine will skip stitching. But if you keep at it, you will get there.

For myself I can say that my FMQ is still far from perfect, but it improves all the time, and I am actually quite enjoying it, and I hope you will, too.
Pictures are of my practice sample.
