I hope you are having a fabulous week and are looking forward to the long holiday weekend. I’m really excited because today I get to show you what I worked on all last summer. It has been SOOOOO hard to keep it secret, but now I can “let the cat out of the bag”, so to speak, because this landed on my doorstep last week…
I wrote the Free-Motion Quilting Idea Book as a jumping off point for quilters who want to be creative with their quilting and are looking for a place to start. It shows you how to build complex-looking custom quilting plans using just a handful of design families. I was so excited when C&T Publishing took it on – thanks C&T!!! We start with the basics…
The heart of the book is the over 150 quilting designs shown step-by-step.
But the part I’m most excited about is that The Free-Motion Quilting Idea book is also an app! And actually, I first conceived it as a digital product so a very special thanks to C&T for seeing the possibility and taking it on! In the app version all these designs are hyperlinked for easy access. The app also include actual video of the designs being stitched out on the BERNINA Q 24 and 790 in Chicago! Thanks BERNINA!
In the app the design steps are animated but in the book you also get step-by-step photos that walk you through how to stitch out each section. You can follow along exactly or mix and match to create something uniquely your own!
A sample project is included to get you started, and a optional coordinating sampler will be available from C&T, featuring ever block in the book. (I think it might be my favorite of my projects ever, so I hope you guys like it!)
