Stippling has always been my go to quilt design. Before I was even quilting, my notebooks always had doodles with plenty of stippling designs. This year I have really been trying to get out of my comfort zone and try new designs. Earlier this year, I did a baby quilt by echoing the pattern of the quilt. It turned out super cute. Beyond echoing, I needed some how-to pictures so I per-ordered Angela Walter’s new book — Free-Motion Quilting with Angela Walters: Choose & Use Quilting Designs for Modern Quilts. By reading this book, my free-motion quilting skills have already improved. So far, I have been able to use three of her designs on the following quilts:
Wow is all I can say! Using her step by step guides, I just followed her designs and before I knew it, I got my rhythm down! By trying these new designs, I am now even more into free-motion quilting (and I didn’t know that was even possible!). This book is definitely a keeper that I will be referencing quite often. Great job Angela!
