Subtitled '3 Steps To Joyful Machine Stitching in 21 Days', this sounds like a challenge I need to take. The book is separated into chapters: Inspiration - a look at what inspires you; Before You Take A Stitch - the basics of needles, batting (wadding), sewing feet and great tips for setting up your workspace; 21 Days Of Practice to build confidence in twenty minutes a day; Five To Learn On involves more practice on set projects such as postcards, a panel quilt, quilting from the back; quilt as you go and a panel for a Denim jacket. Your Personal Quilting World - all about finding yourself and enjoying your work plus a stunning gallery of work, motifs and more. This book is for the not so confident free-motion quilter. Jenny has us thinking about density, scale and repeats. It is not a how to do stippling or other set patterns, it is more about finding and creating your own motifs. By week three, you'll be making small projects to show off your skills such as placemats, a small quilt, hot pads and a larger quilt.
