I purchased this book through the Connecting threads website. http://www.connectingthreads.com/. I saw it was on sale and thought it would be a good reference book to have on hand to get ideas from. This is a complied book of quilting designs and combination of designs to make the best use of your quilting abilities. Some of the designs could be used in applique and others in combination with another could be used for almost any kind of quilting you would like to accomplish. As you can read it is for hand and machine quilting. Some is continuous line quilting. Borders and small motifs are also in this reference book.
As many great quilters have suggested marking a quilt is very important to the final look of the quilt. Making the right markings for the quilting and planning the final look of the quilt is your final statement as to how the quilt will show when finished.
I am always overwhelmed with how to do this. What if I don't like it? What if it is to much.? Well I can make traced off drawings of these designs in combination with each other on paper and see what the final look will be.
As I said I am not associated with this company and yet I am recommending this book to those that are at a cross roads with their abilities and questions as to what should be used when finishing a quilt with the right quilting design. Chris
