5.0 out of 5 stars Great machine, much easier than rotary/scissor cutting, 24 Oct. 2013

Much has already been said about the bigshot. Only used it to cut material so far. Accurate for piecing patchwork and very quick for complicated bonded applique shapes. Easily cuts 6 layers of cotton and 4 layers of bonded cotton to cut applique shapes from.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspirational embroideries and ideas, 17 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As a dressmaker who has recently taken up quilting and now wishes to move on to more creative sewing this book ticked all the boxes. I like that I don't need to take up silk painting and that fabric dying is optional. Although the author encourages you to do the latter and guides you through the process. There are examples of her work with the added personal touch of knowing where the photos were taken. Most are in the UK and have inspired me to take my camera out and start 'snapping' in preparation for new projects. The book gives you very detailed guidance on making 5 pictures, plus one near the start of the book to show you the process. The photos are of good quality and enable to you to see and understand the stitching she has used. Added to this detailed step by step instructions to help you make your work look realistic. The only thing missing is some tips and hints on presenting and framing your new pictures. I was left wondering how she displays hers.

I have used this on a large quilt, so much quicker and easier than quilting pins. Highly recommend, no problems machining over the tacks

4.0 out of 5 stars Very clear instructions, 18 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is excellent for sewing a variety of free motion designs without always resorting to stippling. The diagrams are very clear and she includes very useful suggestions for whole quilt designs. This book suited my needs exactly but if you are a beginner I would recommend you consult other books to get tips/instruction on setting up your machine, speed and control.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book one to keep., 18 Feb. 2013

This book is comprehensive with plenty of information about colour and design. Add to this projects which enable you to make an art quilt without having to learn all about designing your own. I am good at sewing, not at art. This is one of the best books I have found for someone wishing to make art quilts without an art background.

A useful gadget for ideas on selecting colours for quilts. It is a bit difficult to match some of the colours to the know primary colours e.g. the red looks more like pink in my opinion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good tips for sewers of all levels, 30 Dec. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I gave up sewing my own clothes 10 years ago but have recently started again. Patternreview.com is just the most fantastic website ever, it really has revolutionised my sewing. New ideas abound on the site everyday so I just had to buy this book for even more ideas. The book is not about 'how to sew' it is a book for home sewers of all levels full of useful hints and tips some unconvential e.g.use 'post it' pads for seam guides.
