You Need This Book!

March 10, 2017

I recently had the privilege of having a sneak peek at Lori Kennedy’s new book, Free-Motion Machine Quilting 1-2-3. Lori is a regular columnist for the American Quilter Magazine and has a wonderful blog called The Inbox Jaunt.

If you are familiar with her work, you know about the amazing designs Lori can create with her quilting. If you haven’t seen her work and are interested in applying some free-motion quilting to your own projects, you need to purchase this book for your quilting library.

Lori has done an amazing job creating a resource to guide you through the quilting process. What may look like a complicated design once it is stitched out, is actually quite easy and “do-able” using her step by step guidelines. By following her instructions, she will remove any doubt you may have of your stitching ability.

The beginning of the book is loaded with information on how to set up your machine, tools to make the process easier, and a breakdown of batting, backing, and threads.

As you make your way through the book, you will find simple designs, which gradually morph onto what looks like more complicated designs. However, Lori will guide you along each step so that you will soon be stitching your way through new design elements. She also includes areas for you to practice doodling designs so that you can get a feel for how the design is created.

I have been doing my own free-motion quilting for many years and wish this book had been available to me when I first started out. The information Lori has provided will help remove the fear you may have in attempting your own free-motion experience.

 

I would suggest that you pre-order your book through your local quilt shop now! You
may also get your copy directly from Lori at The Inbox Jaunt or through Amazon.com. This is a book you don’t want to miss.
