Quiltmaker Magazine, November/December 2014 Make no mistake, this slim book is small in pages but it's brimming with tips and ideas for free-motion quilting from machine quilting superstar Angela Walters. Angela describes her book as a "guided sketchbook, not a how-to book;" she hopes to get your creative juices flowing and encourages you to train your brain by sketching. This exercise will help you plan and solve issues before you commit stitches to your quilt. Angela is such a sketching advocate that pages of graph paper are included in the book as well! Angela includes drawings, diagrams, and photos of her own work both as illustration and inspiration. She focuses on different areas of a quilt - blocks, borders, negative space - with ideas, examples, and tips for quilting each one. With Angela's gentle manner and encouragement, if you can sketch it, you can quilt it. International Quilt Festival: Quilt Scene, Winter 2014/2015 This is a slim book (about half the pages are graph paper for sketching and planning) but despite its short length, it is a great book to assist in tackling free-motion stitching if you are not confident.I always enjoy Angela Walters's books because they take you through patterns and methods of stitching that offer sensible advice about how to improve your stitching skill set. This book is great for that. It looks at how sketching your pattern before machine stitching can help you map out what an entire quilt can look like (without leaving it to chance) and improve the quality of that stitching. She explores different ways of looking at a quilt in order to create different design areas and layouts so that you can choose which will suit your sewing style and the required pattern. Looking at blocks as a way of repeating pattern, using contrast to highlight portions of a quilt and breaking down a quilt pattern into its component pieces are all explored, and helpfully followed with pages for sketching to see how you have responded to each section.Patterns for borders (with suggestions of the best suited stitching for this area), using negative space to add movement or extend and connect the piecing in a quilt are explored, as are the extension of basic quilting designs into something new and exciting. All this culminates in examples of 27 free-motion quilting designs and then you are left to your own devices to take this advice and put it into practice on the book's worksheets.Although this is a short book, it is a hands-on approach to developing stitching ideas and planning out your approach to free-motion stitching more thoroughly. In this area, Angela Walters shows great expertise. Workshop on the Web, September 2014show more
