What a fabulous book, written by someone who absolutely loves quilting, and is certain everyone else can be taught to love it too. Her writing is infectious, it makes me want to get out my doodle paper and pen and practice some of those swirls, or hooks or leaves, and see just how they join with their neighbours, and all because she says it's a good idea, and probably because I can handle a pencil much better than a machine needle with the feed dogs down!
The author is a very talented young woman, with masses of experience, and a lovely writing style, I actually feel I can maybe, just maybe, really get the hang of free motion quilting (I'm a sad relic of a thimble and thread hand quilter at present) this book has just about convinced me that I can work my way across a quilt top (diagrams will show me how to),so maybe I will.
There's a wonderful gallery of work to inspire me as well. I've just remembered all those wonderful video's on youtube that I've gazed at in envy, BUT this book is open giving me encouragement whilst I work at my own speed, so yes, this gets the thumbs up for giving me enthusiasm and conviction that at last I CAN DO IT.
