There are a lot of great new quilting books that I would love to add to my reference library. Walk – Master Machine Quilting with Your Walking Foot by Jacquie Gering is one of my favorite machine quilting books that has come out recently. It is loaded with valuable information, good clear instructions, and stunning designs. You will get to know and really understand how to use your walking foot to achieve fantastic results. Expand your skills with your walking foot! There is so much more you can do with it than you ever imagined.
Cottage – Style Charm has beautiful and fun applique and embroidery projects that feature spring and cottage-style motifs. Many of the projects would make great gifts. It makes you want to whip something up for a special friend of for yourself. In fact, Laraine wrote a blog post about it and can’t stop making things from the book–she loves it so much! It’s contagious because now I want to buy it.
Start Free-Motion Quilting with Angela Walters DVD isn’t technically a book–it is a DVD that you can watch–but it includes a free eBook, so I’m stretching things a little and saying it is a favorite book. Angela Walters is a talented quilter and author. Her quilting is so beautiful I can only dream about quilting like her. She is so inspiring! There is a lot to be learned from her if you want to free-motion quilt!
