As an author, it’s been great fun to open up boxes and boxes of my brand new book and get it out into the world.

99 Machine Quilting Designs includes a detailed photo, illustrated diagram, and step-by-step instructions on how to quilt 99 different machine quilting motifs, using walking foot AND free-motion techniques. I wrote the book from the perspective of a domestic machine quilter, but most of the designs will translate well to longarm quilting, too!

Here’s an example of one of the walking-foot designs from the book:

And here’s an example of just one of the dozens of free motion ideas in the book:

Each of the 99 designs also includes a variation to try, so it’s really like 198 designs in all! Plus there’s space on each page for you to practice your doodles and take notes right in the book! My hope is for you to get better at machine quilting by practicing as often as you can.

Here’s a video sneak peek of the book:

To make things even more fun, I created a bunch of cute buttons to promote the book, and I’m including one with each order, along with a signed message from me.

Happy Thanksgiving 2020, friends! I’m so grateful for each person who supports me and my family. If you’ve ever left a comment, given a like, used my fabric, read my books, made my designs, taken a class or forged ahead more boldly into machine quilting, thank you so much! I couldn’t do this without YOU!Happy Thanksgiving 2020

Quilt shown above is Modern Logs, made from my Good Vibes fabric.

Although it was just the 3 of us this year, my husband, daughter and I did our annual Thanksgiving trail run in the desert near our home. It’s the perfect place to social distance and still get the exercise we need.
