A fun new book by Christina of a Few scraps! Welcome to the BOOK BLOG HOP!
I love seeing other bloggers who have put their pen to paper for a new book on machine quilting, It's one thing I am continually trying to better myself at! Christina has put together a book on machine quilting on your home machine. I love that she is building confidence and sharing her skills with all of us. I know for a fact, if I can DRAW it, I can QUILT it. That's how I learned to do feathers... and She gives loads of great tips on machine issues as well as ideas to to try and build your skills...
I asked her why she wanted to write the book she says,
I wrote the book because from teaching free motion quilting on my blog it became clear that quilters need a low stress way to practice FMQ without risking their cherished quilt tops. Simple little projects to get them excited about stitching. Most FMQ books focus on technique. This one focuses on practice. That's the way you get better at FMQ: practice, practice, practice. I decided I wanted to make practice fun!
And you know I am all about FUN! Quilting is meant to be FUN! Right!?
Right indeed! Her catch phrase at the moment sums it up!
Lay down some thread!
Now, that is what I am talking about! ;-) ha ha!
