- We can order this
Take your machine's walking foot for a walk on the wild side and move beyond basic stitch-in-the-ditch quilting! In her follow-up to best-selling Foolproof Machine Quilting, award-winning author Mary Mashuta teaches you how to quilt attractive lines, curves, and geometric shapes with a walking foot. The book includes a multitude of designs, each adapted for walking-foot quilting and marked with clock icons to indicate the skill level and time required to accomplish it. This visual guide provides an inspirational gallery of 30 finished quilts and is enhanced by detailed photos of successfully quilted blocks, center panels, sashing, borders, and corners.

There is no pencil or chalk marking on the quilts. Tape and freezer paper templates only are used. Detailed instructions about threads and needles are followed by paper folding techniques showing how to
make the templates. Simple commercial templates can also be transferred to freezer paper. This is not continuous line quilting. The designs are often built up with pattern upon pattern and decorative stitching. Later complex Sashiko designs are added. There are clear diagrams, grading the designs from quick to time consuming.
Unfortunately the quilting is hard to see in the photos against the heavily patterned fabric.
Mary is showing us to move on with our machine quilting. It's time for stitch-in-the-ditch to move over. Her clever designs can be used with any block, border and corner. A great bonus is there is no maths, no marking with these designs. You can use templates, paper cutting, traditional or even sashiko designs. Once pieced together you can embellish your work further. Skill levels required are indicated. But there is more - this book provides visual inspiration, the basics of quilting, creating templates, making blocks, creating centre pieces. There's a great gallery of work too. It's all about creative quilting that often uses the shapes in your design to stitch and quilt.* Karen Platt Yarnsandfabrics.co.uk/crafts *
