October 2019 Book of the Month

Here it is, October, and time to turn the page, literally, and move onto a new Book of the Month selection. This month's choice is Step-by-Step Texture Quilting (affiliate link) by Christina Cameli.

Full of both freehand designs and those requiring a grid structure, this book has a bit of everything. I know I was happy to find it, as it provided some design ideas for a client's Halloween applique quilt. And ultimately, we chose two designs, Fog,

and Wood Grain.

Here's a sneak peek at some other quilting ideas from Step-by-Step Texture Quilting (affiliate link):

Topography, which I like very much,

and the use of scale, which really makes an impact.

As for other ideas, well, you're just going to have to get the book - I know I'll be adding it to my bookshelf.

Update: here's sharing the quilting motifs on a client's quilt.

Fabulous, don't you think?

Happy Quilting!

  1. Hi Susan! I love Christina's work and have taken a few of her video courses. This is definitely a book I would add to my collection. She makes everything look so easy and explains it well. ~smile~ Roseanne
