The big, bold, graphic designs that are often used in modern quiltmaking aren't necessarily enhanced by quilting designs created for more traditional block-based patchwork and applique. Modern quilts, with their irregular shapes and random placement, are enhanced by a different type of quilting pattern altogether. Professional longarm quilter Angela Walters will open your eyes to countless possibilities for working stitches on your quilt tops that will turn them into true works of art. This is not a step-by-step guide on how to free-motion quilt by machine - you'll need other references to learn the basic skills. Rather, Angela shows you how to consider the type of quilting designs that will enhance your quilt top, how to draw them, and how to work them by machine, whether you are using a longarm, midarm or domestic sewing machine. A very stimulating and practical workbook that will enable you to lift your quilts from ordinary to extraordinary.
