Jessica Schick: Quilting by Design (ePUB)

quilting by design 155 free motion designs in 10 elegant suites jessica schick

Many free-machining design books focus on the patterns as a way of building up your skills and repertoire but this one approaches it in a slightly different way, looking instead at planning and designing a pattern to cover a whole quilt. I am new and have only done loops and cusive f patterns. The software suggested and used to illustrate the book is Inkscape, which is free to download although, if you have your own graphics software such as Adobe Illustrator, you will easily be able to adapt the instructions for use here. More importantly, it gives you the confidence to jump in and give free motion quilting a try. Add elegance and sophistication to your projects with this step-by-step guide! These are ornamental intricate designs and require good technical computer skills. There is practical advice on planning the overall quilting. The designs I like are swirly, circular type of designs, so I would love to learn the pattern you made on your bottom left coaster.

Even if I am not chosen for the book, I do want you to know I admire you for what you do and how you offer freebies to others to encourage them in their efforts. The designs are all very ornate and produce some very impressive motifs to follow. By thinking of a pattern to fill a triangle and then building the triangles together, you can build up an area easily. Mix and match elements from 10 design suites. Planning the whole quilting area can be quite intimidating but Jessica breaks it down simply, into triangles.

Many free-machining design books focus on the patterns as a way of building up your skills and repertoire but this one approaches it in a slightly different way, looking instead at planning and designing a pattern to cover a whole quilt. Whether you want to use the patterns as presented or get creative and make them uniquely yours, this book has got you covered. I'm very lucky in that none of my family quilt so to them my quilting looks great. Print the designs any size you want, customize the designs, or use the motifs with your computer-guided quilting or embroidery machines. I love your idea of trying just small pieces! I had to slow down and think about where I was going from time to time, but it was fun! There is practical advice on planning the overall quilting. Another suggestion is to put a photo of the quilt on the screen and add the quilting designs on top, rotating and resizing them to fit. You, obviously, do lovely quilting.

I'm new to free motion quilting, this book sounds wonderful. I too believe that I should quilt my own quilts. I'm getting much better at the swirls, but I don't fill them in like you do. I'm not an experienced quilter and considered having someone else do it with a long-arm but then decided the gift would mean more if I did all of it, however imperfectly. These are ornamental intricate designs and require good technical computer skills. The patterns are divided into 10 suites including Baroque, Florals and Angels, Olive Leaves, Shaggy Leaves and others. I'm planning on quilting a queen size quilt on a domestic sewing using free motion, very soon.

These are particularly good for the reader to be able to visualise how a combination would work and in what direction to stitch. Add elegance and sophistication to your projects with this step-by-step guide! I love the samples you've done for this post and am inspired for the next project. Add elegance and sophistication to your projects with this step-by-step guide!

On my last quilt, I did a did a sort of loop, but with 3 loopy bits, sort of like 3 petals on a flower. I just finished one with spirals which weren't all that round.

I explained it to my daughter this way: its like interpretive dance with a sewing machine. Another suggestion is to put a photo of the quilt on the screen and add the quilting designs on top, rotating and resizing them to fit. A helpful appendix includes the steps Jessica works along to create a design from scratch. I would love to branch out. I want so badly to learn to free motion quilt, but am also afraid I will mess it up. The designs are all very ornate and produce some very impressive motifs to follow. I just need to play.

There are 15 projects in the book that encourage you to start small and increase your comfort level with free motion quilting before you tackle something larger, like a quilt. Hi Amanda Jean, I would love the chance to win this book. Next time, I'd like to try the pretty motif you used on your coaster front left. Mix and match elements from 10 design suites. I also quilted a few swatches of different designs and I turned them into a set of coasters. I could see doing this all over a whole quilt. I did not find it easy to adapt her designs with Inkscape -- maybe that is how she expected us to get the rest of the patterns.
