Quilting Beyond Stippling

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!

I am linking up with TNT (Trying New Things) with the Happy Quilting Blog.
