On My Bookshelf

Machine Quilting Made Easy 
by Maurine Noble

Machine Quilting Made Easy

I have been teaching machine quilting classes for over 15 years. And this is the book that consistently tops the bibliography list for my students. No, it's not a brand new book but I think it is the best one for anyone wanting to learn about machine quilting.

This book makes learning to machine quilt easy and fun. Get familiar with the basics as you do the exercises; then use the samples you make as handy references.

  • Learn to machine quilt with sixteen lessons in straight-line quilting with a walking foot, freehand quilting with a darning foot, quilting with decorative threads, and more.
  • Includes five comprehensive charts for selecting needles, thread, and batting - I refer to these frequently and the charts include brand names to make it easier for decision-making. 
  • Find guidelines for planning quilts and basic techniques for finishing quilts.
If this is a book you would like on YOUR bookshelf, it is now available through the Patchworks Studio website. Place your order here.  I know you will use this book often!
