A New Perspective On An Old Idea !!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Twice Quilted: Continuous-Line Quilting Designs (Little Box Of...) (Paperback)
After seeing the author on a quilting show demonstrating this technique, I simply had to learn more about it. I was not disappointed in purchasing this book. I feel that it is a "must-have" addition to any quilting library. It consists of a book and fold out patterns.
It empowers you to do more free motion quilting on your sewing machine and I think this idea needs more exposure.
Once you grasp the idea of making two passes....the first placing the "flowers" or central motifs around the quilt, then the second pass in filling in the blank areas with leaves and other swirls and the like, then you can understand what the book is about.
The patterns in the book are more of a guide line as to how to do this technique rather than an actual "follow exactly" pattern. It gives you the concept and frees you up to follow your own ideas and placements of the quilting. I think the program I watched where she explained this probably helped me grasp the idea of this easier than just reading the book.
I am enjoying this new technique immensely, both with my regular sewing machine and also with my long arm machine. And, this is good for both small and large quilts (by doing it in sections).
