Welcome to a machine-quilting book like no other. It's a helpful guide to machine-quilting designs for a dozen classic quilt blocks! No guessing, no stressing--these 61 designs show you exactly how to quilt specific blocks, and you choose the challenge. With four to six ways to quilt each block, you'll find machine-quilting designs for beginners, advanced quilters, and everyone in between. Designs are rated with one, two, or three spools:
One spool: Light quilting, no marking, easy to stitch--perfect for finishing quilts quickly.
Two spools: A little more adventurous--try swirls, pebbles, feathers, and more.
Three spools: Dense quilting, grid work, and ruler work--plus more feathers!
Start with an introduction to basic tools, supplies, and best practices. Then jump right in with color-coded illustrations that tell you which path to follow and when. Yes, you can quilt it--begin with any of the blocks below and Vicki Ruebel will show you how!
