Create Beautiful Machine Quilting with Almost No Marking. Sew these 24 graceful machine-quilting designs with ease on your home sewing machine, with almost no marking! An elegant alternative to stippling or meandering for all-over quilting, or give your quilt the look of Sashiko without the slow hand sewing. Many designs can build into more intricate patterns by simply adding more lines. Scalable patterns are easy to enlarge or reduce to fit even odd-shaped spaces. Every design includes easy-to-follow instructions and stitched sample; some include full-page pattern. Whether you want to quilt a simple overall pattern or a show-stopping design for a competition, you'll love the elegance of these continuous-line designs. Stitching them is so easy: just sew one line of stitching at a time. Stitch some designs with feed dogs up, others with them down. Designs include cross-hatching, triangles, stars, clamshells, jigsaw puzzles, and many more.

About the author (2010)

Charlotte Warr Andersen is an avid and well-known quilter. A native Utahn, she was born in Salt Lake City and has lived there all her life. She learned many needle skills from her mother, but she considers most of her quilting skills to be self-taught or acquired by good observation. Having recently become an empty nester, she resides with her husband, Eskild, and two dogs, Hugo and Legion. Stitching a portrait is still one of her favorite pastimes. Charlotte travels and teaches her stitching and quilting methods. She served as president of the International Quilt Association for two terms, from 2006 to 2009. Now that the children have all moved out, she may have room to purchase a longarm machine. But at the time of the completion of this book, she was still doing all her own quilting on her Berninas.
