It's been a while since I've had a book of the month, but I feel this hot-off-the-press is well worth featuring. May I present How Do I Quilt It? by Christa Watson. (affiliate link)
How Do I Quilt It? is perfect for the quilter wanting to learn how to quilt on a domestic machine. Christa goes over two methods of domestic machine stitching, using either freemotion or a walking foot. There are three quilt projects given, each using both quilting techniques to get you started.
Christa starts out the quilting process by explaining the tools involved, how to prepare your quilt, and making a quilting plan. Then it's off to stitching. But don't forget, it's important to practice, practice, practice!
Here's a sample of a project, using ribbon candy,
and here's a collection of other quilting ideas for the same quilt.
If you're ready to jump into quilting your own quilts, I recommend starting out with How Do I Quilt It? It's sure to give you the confidence you need! And once you've become comfortable quilting, expand your repertoire of quilting designs with another of Christa's books, 99 Machine Quilting Designs (affiliate link).
