by Renae Haddadin
Award-winning and commercial longarm quilter Renae Haddadin shares her best visual information about filler quilting designs. Using more than 100 color photos in a combination of detailed close-up shots and long views, she shows you the effect a given design will have on your quilt's look. Choose from 45 individual design types in 7 categories: Simple basics, textural designs, natural texture, hatching/lines/curves, grid work, feathers and swirls and combinations.
At last! Down-to-earth advice about enhancing large open areas with modern machine quilting. The 'modern' look in quilting is quilting! Lots of it, in large, unpieced areas of the quilt. Caught somewhere between making a wholecloth quilt and something that is all pieced, many quilters seek inspiration for the quilting to do in those wide open spaces. This book provides both the technical advice and the creative ideas offering seven striking quilts as practice projects. The projects and quilting designs in this book can easily be used with any quilting method. The simple-to-sew projects can even be hand pieced, if desired. Includes CD of full-size quilting designs.
