What a terrific book! I have been stalling on trying machine, free motion quilting knowing for sure that it takes a lot of practice to become decent at it. I didn’t want to ruin something I had made. But now, I am ready to GO! The book has multiple projects where “mistakes” made while practicing are just fine, they actually add to the beauty of the finished projects! What a great approach. I can practice and still turn out wonderful items. Thanks to the author for this approach. Usually I am not a fan of so many of the projects in quilting books, but this one had several that appealed to me…

Wow! Nicely done, Ms Cameli. This should be the first book purchased if you want to learn free-motion quilting–and it may be the last one purchased. There was an excellent discussion of the basics needed. This was followed by very interesting designs. Then the projects…and these were from “let me try this tiny thing” to “let me put together a large quilt”. When I started quilting, it was old patterns and old calico prints–how things have changed. And for he better. The modern designs are refreshing and interesting–thanks to all of the young people like Ms. Cameli who are invigorated this art form for all ages.
