Book Review for 'Free-Motion Quilting Idea Book'
The Free-Motion Quilting Idea Book by Amanda Murphy is like an encyclopedia of quilting stitches. The book contains 155 stitches with indexes in the back that link families of stitches together and which stitches work for an all-over design, sashings, and borders. The best part of Free-Motion Quilting Idea Book is that it contains 30 familiar blocks and shows 3or more patterns to quilt on each block. Murphy doesn't just give out patterns in this book. Every pattern is drawn out on a square step-by-stepk, until the pattern is completed. Quilting tips are included in the beginning of the book and at the back, a gallery of finished quilts is shown.
I think this is a very good book, offering some easy blocks for beginners and some more difficult ones for advanced quilters. The arrangement of the indexes and the blocks shown with the different methods of stitching make this a very helpful book to own!
