Please welcome Leah Day, free-motion quilter extraordinaire and genius behind The Free Motion Quilting Project, to the C&T Publishing family! Starting this July, we will be printing and distributing Leah's amazingly popular book 365 Free Motion Quilting Designs.
If you haven't heard of The Free Motion Quilting Project, what are you waiting for? Head on over now! Leah Day started the project in 2009, after deciding to challenge herself to come up with one new free-motion quilting filler design every day for a year. The results are gathered together in this hefty book (it's 252 pages long!), and they are astonishing. Leah has no art degree or other formal arts training, but she more than backs up her belief that you don't need training to be an artist with her endlessly creative, endlessly innovative designs. Below are a few of my favorites, so you can see what I mean.
This one is called Sprouting Seeds.
And this one is Swirling Petals.
Hopefully these give you a taste of the creative possibilities—there's even more fantastic quilting designs (362, to be exact) packed into 365 Free Motion Quilting Designs. Plus, for every single design, there's a video tutorial that walks you through how to quilt it, step by step. See all the videos here!
