I have been getting into my quilting more and more lately which means I am always on the lookout for quilting books! I was recently sent a copy of 'Doodle Quilting' (written by @cheryl_rose_creations , published by @ctpublishing & sold by @searchpress ) and woweee is this book fab! I was hooked from the intro as Cheryl encourages you to start by tracing over the designs in the book (by placing vinyl over the pages and using dry-erase markers), before gradually moving your hand farther away from the tip of the pen and drawing with your whole arm rather than with your wrist, and then using tape to secure 2 pens together (in a cross shape) to get used to moving both hands together...this is to practise the movement which will more closely resemble that of the movement you will use when free motion quilting on your machine! Cheryl then presents over 120 continuous line free motion quilting designs (which I LOVE as I hate starting/stopping/tying in loose threads) and combinations! This really is an amazing free motion quilting book and one I really recommend for anyone interested in free motion quilting no matter what your experience/skill level!
