Review Going to Pieces - March 9, 2008
"I was very excited to see this new book, "Mindful Meandering" by machine quilter extraordinaire Laura Lee Fritz. Laura's machine quilting is memorable to anyone who has seen her amazing work in person -- she can effortlessly quilt in elaborate animals and motifs that take a quilt to a whole different level.
While I admire that sort of work, in my own machine quilting I like having a big arsenal of meandering designs. So when I saw that Laura has done an entire book on meandering machine quilting designs, I figured it'd be pretty great.
And I was right. Laura not only provides some basic tips on machine quiltiing and using meandering designs effectively, but she includes 132 different meandering designs....most of which are something a bit different than the ones I've seen elsewhere. Many of the designs incorporate very simple images -- say, continuous line sailboats scattered among a wavy water design. They have visual complexity but they don't look difficult to sew. She also includes a section on how to use meandering designs in block formats, as well as showing how certain designs look when used in a square format.
I know I'll be referring to this book often as I plan my machine quilting."
Review Quilt Mania - April 1, 2008
"Granted, there is nothing to read in this book, but these quilting motifs are really original and even brilliant. When you consider how important the quilting design is to a quilt, you will agree that this little book is worth buying. Laura has written it with machine quilters in mind but hand quilters will find it just as useful. I expect to see some of these patterns on your quilts at a show soon!"
