Pre-Order: Inspired Free-Motion Quilting

"Inspired Free-Motion Quilting: 90 Antique Designs Reinterpreted for Today's Quilter" will be released in October 2018, and is now available for pre-order.

Mandy Leins and I co-authored the book. Working with Mandy was such a pleasure. She is an outstanding machine quilter and loves old quilts. It was fascinating to see how she was inspired by each quilt, and how she created the continuous line drawings needed for free-motion quilting. I can't say enough about the superb work she did on this book.

All the quilts in the book are over 100 years old, and some are more than 200 years old! There are four quilts from the 1790s, and most of the others are c. 1850 and earlier. The designs are elegant, whimsical, and surprisingly relevant in the 21st century. Thank you to Mandy Leins for doing such a wonderful job, and of course all the fine folks at C&T Publishing / Stash Books for suggesting the idea and making it possible. To pre-order, click here.
