In this sequel to her first book, Christina Cameli shows how quilters can turn nine simple shapes into multiple designs for quilting on domestic or longarm machines. Page after page of unique designs, with diagrams showing the stitching path for each, will inspire you to quilt your own projects with confidence. (Fons and Porter's Easy Quilts, Summer 2015)
Cameli (First Steps to Free-Motion Quilting) focuses on shape-based designs for her second book, in which she takes nine basic shapes (including circles, loops, drops, and spirals) and demonstrates how to use them in all-over free-motion quilting designs. Each of the patterns is presented on a spread, with text-based and illustrated directions for creating the design on the left page and a full-page sketch of the repeating design on the right-hand page. The arrangements vary in complexity, so there’s as much here for beginners as there is for experienced free-motion quilters. Cameli provides abundant ideas and inspiration, and quilters who enjoy books by Angela Walters and Leah Day will find new designs to add to their free-motion quilting repertoire. (Library Journal)

There are over 80 designs that spring from nine ‘elements'. These arecombined and recombined to give endless possibilities.The ‘elements' are circle, curvy lines, loops, drops, spirals, leaves, ‘s' curves, arcs andgrass. A brief description of each is given with diagrams and written instructions of how tosew them. This is a good foundation for moving onto the more complex designs but before you get to those, there are some considerations that are mapped out for you, which look at the practical aspects of these free-motion motifs. It's a great book for getting you to look beyond some of the more traditional stitches youmight stick to and to think about how you can adapt these basic stitches to create something more personal.

And I am! This is exactly what Christina Cameli's new book "Step-by-Step Free-Motion Quilting" feels like to me. She makes me feel certain that I am going to learn to free-motion quilt... and not just basic things, but beautiful designs, done well. I actually am having a hard time writing this review because Christina's book got me so revved up that I want to rush upstairs and start sketching and then sewing her designs. I particularly love her tips on how to take a design you like and turn it into a finished quilt.
Christina has a gift for looking at complex things and breaking them down into something attainable. She is a warm and encouraging person, a very good communicator and an excellent teacher. This book really is the perfect companion book to her "First Steps to Free-Motion Quilting". It also is an excellent stand-alone book - a terrific source of ideas and inspiration. Whether you are a newbie or experienced; whether you quilt with a domestic sewing machine or have a long arm sewing machine - I highly recommend this book!
