I ordered two Angela Walters books recently. Free Motion Quilting and Shape by Shape. I had borrowed them from my BQF Vicki at Orchid Owl Quilts and quickly decided I needed to own them. Two days later they were at my front door. (Thank you Amazon Prime.) They are both fantastic books and well worth buying. I think the Shape by Shape book is my favorite so far.
Oh, that reminds me. If you are a Modern Quilt Guild member, Angela did a great webinar on deciding how to quilt your quilt. You should go to the MQG website and check it out.
So in quilting my Goldfish quilt, I tried out some of her designs. For example:
I had tried her signature design on my owl pouches from a few posts ago. I decided to use it again on the main section of the goldfish quilt.
I love how it looks like moving water currents. I can see why she likes to use this design so often.
I'll get the binding on and put up some completed pics soon. Hopefully this week.
But in the meantime, I definitely recommend this book. The diagrams are fantastic and easy to follow. She has tips for making it work and all kinds of variations on each design in each section. I really want to get better at my Free Motion Quilting and I think her books are going to be great tools to do so.
Thanks for visiting my blog. Have a quilty day!
