About the Author

About Mary Mashuta

Mary Mashuta began quilting in the early 1970s and has been teaching quiltmaking internationally since 1985. Her quilts and garments have been in numerous national shows. Mary began as a hand quilter, but she switched to machine quilting with the walking foot in the 1990s. She prides herself on creating interesting quilting designs with the walking foot and has discovered how to use heavier threads on the top of the machine. Because she never moved on to free-motion quilting, she has been able to help numerous other quilters who are "drop the feed dog" challenged to discover that they can quilt their own quilts with interesting designs without ever doing free-motion quilting. Mary has two degrees in home economics. She has published six books with C&T. She has also written numerous magazine articles. She lives in Berkeley, California, with her sister and fellow quilter, Roberta Horton. Visit Mary at www.marymashuta.com.


British Patchwork and Quilting

There is no pencil or chalk marking on the quilts. Tape and freezer paper templates only are used. Detailed  instructions about threads and needles are followed by paper folding techniques showing how to
make the templates. Simple commercial templates can also be transferred to freezer paper. This is not continuous line quilting. The designs are often built up with pattern upon pattern and decorative stitching. Later complex Sashiko designs are added. There are clear diagrams, grading the designs from quick to time consuming.
Unfortunately the quilting is hard to see in the photos against the heavily patterned fabric.

Mary is showing us to move on with our machine quilting. It's time for stitch-in-the-ditch to move over. Her clever designs can be used with any block, border and corner. A great bonus is there is no maths, no marking with these designs. You can use templates, paper cutting, traditional or even sashiko designs. Once pieced together you can embellish your work further. Skill levels required are indicated. But there is more - this book provides visual inspiration, the basics of quilting, creating templates, making blocks, creating centre pieces. There's a great gallery of work too. It's all about creative quilting that often uses the shapes in your design to stitch and quilt.
