5-0 out of 5 stars Machine Quilting Made Easy by Maurine Noble is a wonderful book!
What can I say, I love this book!It's the one I learned to machine quilt from, and one of the ones I always recommend to my students (along with quilting discs)!This book has all the information you need to start quilting your quilts, from adjusting the thread tension to step-by-step lessons.In the back of the book there are charts with detailed information on all kinds of threads you can quilt with as well as needles and threads that can be couched onto your quilt and all through the book are pictures showing the quilting on gorgeous quilts!

I received my book in excellent condition and the book was as listed - just like new.

5-0 out of 5 stars Machine quilting techniques
In the past I've only done hand quilting.I thought I'd need an industrial sewing machine in order to quilt the items I created.This book is helpful in learning the techniques to be done using a home sewing machine.Very exciting!

4-0 out of 5 stars Good Book- extremely basic information
This is a very light book that basically gives an overview on machine quilting. It is really for someone that has had some experience with quilting and wants clarification on certain techniques. This is certainly not for someone just starting out, as much information is touched upon, it is not in depth information and I would think it would leave someone very new to quilting a bit confused.
This is a great reference book to pick up and review techinque and even gives basic information about batting, threads, and needles, but lacks the real essence of doing successful machine quilting. The book's title- Machine Quilting Made Easy- is a bit misleading, as this book at best, glosses over multiple topics on machine quilting-but I am not certain that it really breaks it down in depth enough to qualify as "easy". How much can you possibly learn from 1 page topics really?Machine quilting done properly is not exactly the easiest thing to learn and given the "shorthand" versions of techniques is not for beginners at all. I do give this book 4 stars for being a great book to refer to, if you have had prior experience.

5-0 out of 5 stars Love to Quilt
I purchased this book several years ago and find it is an excellent teaching tool for machine quilting.A friend borrowed it and also loved it so I ordered her one on Amazon.It arrived within 3 days and she started reading and practicing from the easy steps in the book.I have a feeling others in my quilt group will ask me to order a copy for them. ...

Foolproof Machine Quilting is a must have book for any quilting library. Love the no math part of the patterns as I just HATE math! ~2~ Wonderful book and one I will be referring to quite often.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent quilting book
Received the book in excellent condition and within a couple of days.Totally satisfied as the book is very informative.

5-0 out of 5 stars Foolproof Machine Quilting by Mary Mashuta
Foolproof Machine Quilting by Mary Mashuta is the answer to the "quilt as desired" dilemma so many quilters are faced with at the end of pattern directions. It is also the answer for those who find free motion quilting difficult or who simply don't enjoy it. Free motion quilting is not required. Instead, quilters will learn to use a simple straight stitch to create surprisingly beautiful results.

Mary teaches us to quilt with our walking foot with feed dogs up and introduces us to all of its advantages. She goes beyond the usual stitch-in-the-ditch which, unfortunately, is often the only use most quilters make of their walking feet.

Valuable information about our sewing machines is included along with how to select projects and supplies, basic sewing tips, selecting projects and supplies, and important information for working with monofilament and other types of thread. The very useful section on preparing the quilt top and quilt sandwich will ensure problem-free edges for our quilts.

The lessons in the book quilters will appreciate most especially are how to create our own quilting designs and make the templates for them. The book is chock-full of quilt design ideas for a variety of block sizes and patterns in full colour. Borders are not neglected. 16 pages of of directions and photos ensure that our quilts will be finished beautifully.
This book is definitely a must-have for our personal quilt book libraries!

5-0 out of 5 stars A Must Have resource for machine quilters
"Free-Motion Quilting Made Easy: 186 designs from 8 simple shapes" by Eva A. Larkin is a Must Have book for machine quilters or anyone interested in learning to machine quilt.

This book is an amazing resource. Not only are you given 186 different continuous line quilt designs, but more importantly Larkin shows you how she took a few basic shapes and combined them to create the designs. These are skills which can be duplicated using any shape you might care to try. It also allows you to resize any of the designs she shows to the exact size you require.

Larkin has included sections on how to set up your quilting area, how to determine stitch length, how to break your quilt up into manageable sized areas to quilt and a trouble shooting guide for several common problems which might be encountered.

This is an excellent resource for anyone who is interested in machine quilting.

So helpful to someone who must now retrain herself from hand quilting to machine quilting after 30 years.Such simple ideas turn into lovely and very useful designs.I have now tried a few of the designs and can honestly say that they really enhance my quilts.Now I am not just machine quilting in the ditch but becoming more at ease at trying different patterns. Instructions are very easy to follow and diagrams are clear to understand.A very user friendly book.

I have been teaching quilting for over 10 years and have always used my own handouts rather than a textbook. This year I decided it was time to stop doing so much work and went searching for a comprehensive text. Much to my delight, this book has all the information my students might ever need. Best of all, it mirrors my own teaching techniques!No more running copies late at night the day before class, and my students will always have the information they need to make beautiful quilts!

5-0 out of 5 stars Just what you need!!
I have had the honor of being in a class with Harriett.She is absolutely wonderful.She teaches you how to quilt instead of just making quilt tops.She is an excellent teacher and her books are just what you need to get precise blocks.Follow what she says to the letter and you won't be disappointed!Education is her theme throughout. I just loved it.

5-0 out of 5 stars The remedy to "Quilt as desired"
I took the third edition of this book out of the library a few years ago, when I was trying to teach myself to expand beyond quilt-in-the-ditch and random meandering around on a quilt top. I learned quite a bit from the third edition before the library demanded that I return their book (Well! the NERVE!). But the fourth edition is a whole 'nother level of instruction, and it's a winner.

I bought the book shortly before I took a class with the author, Harriet Hargrave, and I read through about a quarter of the book before the class started. (Once I take a class from someone, I hear their voice when I read their words; since you probably won't have that experience, the rest of this review is about my perceptions _before_ I met her in person. And if you do get a chance to take a class with Harriet, DO. I learned a huge amount in those three days, and my quilting went from "that doesn't suck too much" to "hey, now I know how to do it right! once I practice a bunch more, that is.")

The book, however, is fabulous simply as standalone instruction. I had at least a half dozen, "Aha! So THAT is what I was doing wrong!" realizations in the first few chapters. They ranged from the discovery that I was using WAY too few pins to hold the batting in place, to figuring out the order in which to quilt, to a new understanding of which threads and needles to use. (I'd always said Yeah Yeah Sure but this finally made it all make sense.) I also learned about the things I really *don't* need to spend money on; I'm confident that I can now do just about anything I want on my home sewing machine, and that I don't need to send out quilts to a longarm quilter or even to invest in a Bernina stitch regulator. Isn't it nice when a book convinces you that you *don't* need to spend more money?

And that's all before getting to the sections on how to quilt in the ditch, and how to choose the right darning foot, and how to practice free-motion quilting. The result is that I have a LOT more confidence in what I'm doing, now... and after a few days learning the techniques, I'm anxious to start making a dent in the pile of unfinished quilt tops. In particular, I earned a new appreciation from Harriet for the beauty that can be added from the quilting, not just from piecing. I can't wait to see what I can accomplish with my quilts, now that I no longer have to dread the "What do I do NOW?" uncertainty when I see a pattern book that ends with "quilt as desired."

Second copy. I bought as a gift . Love it. best referencebook for avid quilters

4-0 out of 5 stars Good answer book
I got this book this weekend while at a new quilt shop I was checking out because none of the fabric looked that great and I always want to buy "something" when I make an effort to go to a quilt shop that's out of the way to feel like I'm supporting small business and supporting quilting as a whole.

I'm a pretty experienced quilter, I have been doing this for a few years now and I sell some of my quilts online and people buy it so I can't be that horrible right?^_^

Anyways this book was a good read, I have a ton of quilting books and after a while they all tend to say the same thing in a different way.I must agree with other comments where the pictures in the book are kind of lacking but the content is pretty good.There was a lot of useful advice.I think I knew a lot of what was said in this book but it was good to have a refresher and cleared up some of the methods I have heard about and discussed the pros and cons of different quilting techniques.

It also has quilter's math at the end of the book which has a bunch of useful tables.

The biggest thing I got out of this book was not to clean your machine with compressed air, which is what I did because even though it looks like it's getting the lint out it's actually pushing the lint farther in the machine.Also the review on thread tensioning for your sewing machine was good, I almost always forget what to do when the tension is off, do I make the number lower or higher on my machine?Well this book answers that.

So yeah you probably know everything in this book already but it's kind of a good book to just have beside your table because it's pretty small but it has a good table of contents.I think it's a good supplementary book to get along with a how to book if you are a beginning quilter because even though this book answer questions you might have about quilting, it doesn't teach you how to quilt.

As fairly new quilter I find this book is aGodsend. If I am unsure of something, I just go to the book and the answer is there. Almost as good as having my own teacher.

This book has been an inspiration to me.There are so many thoughtful presentations that show you how to accomplish photo techniques.The embellishment chapter added a dimention to my photos and wallhangings that I had not used before.The author is specific and provides a supply list for each project.Each project is a learning experience.This will be a reference book for me for a long time.You cannot get all the information presented in one reading session.A must for any person serious about using photos for fabric projects.

4-0 out of 5 stars Interesting Read
This book is beautifully presented and has some great ideas in quilting and has some great projects to follow. Unfortunately when I purchased it I thought it was more of a 'take a picture and then transfer that picture in FABRIC to a quilt'. Which is not exactly what it does, it actually shows you how to print that photo onto fabric and transfer it to a quilt. Although it was not what I thoughtit is still a fantastic book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive
The attention to detail is very obvious in this wonderful book. I have read it through twice and will still go back again and again to absorb all there is to learn.It covers so many areas from camera and software choices, fabric colours and choices, editing, embellishing, design and making up. It even shows how to create your own stylized label.Can't wait to put it into practice.

5-0 out of 5 stars Love This Book!
I have not had time to finish this book yet. I will finish it, but even if I didn't-it would be worth every penny I spent on it.I have read several books and many articles on using a digital camera to take photo's with the intent of printing them of fabric.I learned more in the first two chapters of this book than I learned in all the other books put together.It tells you WHY it's best to do something a certain way which is what my inquiring mind wants to know.The technical information is a real help.

5-0 out of 5 stars Close to perfection, but not enty-level
This book is a welcome addition to my book shelf's ever-growing "Theory and Design" section.Yet I struggled for several days with this review;nearly every positive is tinged with a slightly negative "but". I want to stress that I actually LIKE this book overall, and rate it highly for its content.The color photos are quite striking and the machine quilting examples are exceptionally beautiful.

Contained in this book's 112 pages are

1) a meaty but very scant 17 pages of actual how-to text
2) about 60 pages of black-and-white stitching diagrams
3) about 21 pages of full-color stitching examples

If you were to simply leaf through this book, the extensive black & white sections might alarm you and put you off. But keep thumbing, and you will be rewarded with several smaller full-color sections.This odd organization is actually my first key issue:each B&W diagram has a corresponding full-color located in a completely different section of the book,so you have to keep leafing back and forth to resolve the references.Also, the how-to information is broken up into one section at the very beginning of the book and another at the very end of the book; again, more forward and backward leafing.

The color examples are sumptuous, and include notes on which type of fabric, batting, and thread were used; this is important and interesting data for both beginning and experienced quilters.If you've ever considered making a whole-cloth quilt, I think these examples were stitched on solids deliberately to further inspire the quilter.

Each black and white diagram includes one actual pattern (to be enlarged or whatever) and a corresponding smaller navigation diagram.My issue with the navigation diagrams is that they are so small and the arrows so incomplete that I find it difficult to correctly trace over some of them.In the case of the very first design called "Camelot",I simply cannot trace over the diagram completely in a single line without losing my place over and over.Perhaps larger, more thorough diagrams (and just a few more written instructions) would make it instantly clearer.

Also, despite this book's subtitle "80 Patterns For Blocks, Borders, Corners, & Backgrounds", there are actually very few background examples. MY eye sees mostly block-based designs here.What I really wanted and expected were a few more background filler-type designs; there are reallyonly 2 pages' worth here.And you really have to extrapolate from the photos if you want exposure to some spectacular new ideas.I would love to read more from Ms Walner as to how she evolved the background designs that appear in the color photos and some general guidelines for adapting those specific designs.They are really striking and exactly what I want to learn how to do.Each larger scale block-based design is accompanied by a "just right" background filler.This book did succeed in making me aware for the first time that matching a background design to the larger designs is an accomplished skill in itself.

This book further drives home the point that "free-motion" does not necessarily mean "no marking"; for all but perhaps the background patternsthe new-to-intermediate quilter will probably need to trace the designs onto the fabric.There is one larger scale design called "Old Oak" which is a bit more free-form and might not have to be marked.

As mentioned, there are some really lovely designs here.My personal favorite is the "Splendid Swan" which incorporates meandering scroll-work into the swan's head and body.Also, Walner is one of the first authors/instructors I have heard to actually encourage pressing seams open for a top that will be continuously quilted.This is welcome but paradoxical news for some strictly-in-the-ditch stitchers who insist open seams are never allowed.

Although I might not recommend this book as someone's very firstfree-motion book(it is definitely not an exhaustive design/technique reference), it certainly is a buy-worthy compendium of practicalideas and gorgeous examples.Sometimes we just need an extrabook that inspires us with new ideas and visual examples.I happily put this book in that category.

This is a great book for quilters at any experience level.The projects are small but useful.Debbie Mumm has many quick tips that make your projects come out looking like you have been quilting for years.This was my first experience with strip quilts and speed triangles. The instructions are clear and concise with diagrams to make it easy.

This was exactly what I wanted - I have been looking for this book for several years after having it out of the library.I could never find it at the library again and I wanted a pattern to use out of it.I was extremely happy with the delivery and condition of this used book and look forward to using it in the future.

5-0 out of 5 stars good resource
This book has a lot of good tips on how to make quilting easier. Especially for the beginner.

4-0 out of 5 stars Not a good book for beginners
Please note :I wrote this review for beginner quilters only :

Please beware that this book is not for beginners... Not that it claims to be... It does have pretty pictures of nice quilts.And if you can follow hand drawn black and white diagrams - this book is for you..I guess I'm spoiled because there are so many books out there with actual pictures that take you step by step, plus even if you never make a quilt it is nice eye candy... This book is not like that.. This is the only quilt book that I've purchased that I didn't like...

Some of the MOST ACCLAIMED AUTHORS on the MYRID OF SUBJECTS covered by this book ARE NOT VERY FORTHCOMING with information & instructions. They are authors who KNOW their subject, but seem reluctant to pass that knowledge on to their readers. SUCH IS NOT THE CASE WITH MARSHA MICHLER(& another very generous author, Di van Niekerk-"A Perfect World of Ribbon Embroidery"+10 other EM books. Di also keeps on giving tips & instructions to her readers through her Facebook page:DivanNiekerk SRE. YOU CANNOT GO WRONG WITH THESE TWO AUTHORS!A Perfect World in Ribbon Embroidery and Stumpwork

5-0 out of 5 stars More craziness for crazy quilts
The best part(s) of this book are the stitching techniques demonstrated right along with the sample quilt(s). You're able to see how the stitching will look as the quilt comes together. Beautifully done with excellent diagrams and photos. The historical information is also very good. A great book to have for your quilting repetoire.

Just received this book and it exceeds my expectations. Made my selection due to the reviews of this book and thanks to all for the comments because thisis a great choice.

Author gives 20 pages to show different stitches and their various possiblities on a project. Inspiring photos, and suggestions for applications of crazy quilt method.

Dancing with Thread by Ann Fahl really simplified machine quilting for me, and makes me want to dance with my machine!Her needle selection guidelines have simplified needle purchases for me and, I'm not having to look through my selection of needles every time I do embroidery on my machine. When I've read about machine embroidery before, the books were very serious, and Fahl lightens the subject and makes it fun to do!I hightly recommend this book to anyone who is learning to do free-motion, or to give the experienced stitcher great tips!

I haven't finished reading the book but so far it has been an easy-to-read and follow instruction manual.It offers more than quilting patterns and I am looking forward to putting needle-to-quilt sandwich to create a masterpiece.

5-0 out of 5 stars Machine Quilting - The Basics & Beyond
Thank you, Lynn Witzenburg for writing this book!If you always wanted to try to machine quilt on your own domestic sewing machine (instead of paying exhorbitant amounts of money to have someone quilt your quilts on a long-arm quilting machine), then this is a great book to get you going! Lynn's easy, relaxed approach takes the fear out of the process and heads you in the right direction. Great, clear color photos, and this book is spiral bound, so you can open it flat and it will stay that way as you refer to it while you are learning. I have been quilting for 16 years, and have a huge library of all types of quilting books.I've always been afraid to try machine quilting on my own machine because I figued there was some special skill to it, but that's not true at all! However, I won't lie to you - it DOES take practice, practice, practice and a goodly measure of trial and error in the beginning.One of Lynn's most helpful ideas in this book is to make several practice quilt sandwiches (she even suggests dimensions for your practice sandwiches!), and then write directly on the fabric what type of batting is between your layers of fabric, and what type and weight of thread you are using before you start quilting. This keeps it all straight and lets you know when you hit upon the best batting and thread for machine quilting your projects.Tons of information on everything from A-Z, including needles, sewing machine tension adjustments, sewing feet, etc.I am going to save a TON of money quilting my own projects instead of sending them out to be quilted!A GREAT book, and HIGHLY recommended if you've never machine quilted before, and are fearful of it, but are dying to try it. Well worth every penny, and the price is reasonable, too!

I read this book cover to cover--Wonderful, spectacular, easy to follow, great information on all points of crazy quilting.I'm just getting started on crazy quilting and now after reading this wonderful book I can't wait to get started. An added perk to this book are stitches for lefties as well as the other handies ;-)

Now I'm going back and check on all the other J.Marsha Michler books.Great author!

I LOVE this book.It is beautifully illustrated, has great embroidery detail illustrations, and wonderful suggestions.It has just gotten my creative juices flowing. It's wonderful "eye candy" for the embroidery crowd.I highly recommend this book for anyone who enjoys embroidery and/or crazy quilting who is looking to expand their skills and creative ideas - or just wants a beautiful book in their collection.The spiral bound format is perfect.

Very DISSAPOINTED in the shipper however.They have duplicated my order and it is almost impossible to get in touch with them.Try to avoid dealing with Super Book Deals, Fulfillment Center in South Bend, Indiana.

5-0 out of 5 stars It IS the complete guide!
I've been crazy quilting (or is it quilting crazy) for many years now and have a very good crazy patchwork library to prove it! Crazy Quilting is all about embellioshment ideas. And there's endless ideas out there on how you can embellish a simple piece of cloth into a wonderous extravaganza and feast for the eyes. To that end I like to have a lot of resources at my fingertips to delve into and get inspirations. This publication, Crazy Quilting, The Complete Guide, is one of the very best in it's genre, and J. Marsha Michler must be congratulated on a publication that simply "says it all" and in such an organised manner.

For me, the most valuable thing about this book is that it is spirally bound, which means it will lay flat on my lap, or on my desk, or on my car seat, where ever I may be stitching. That's really important to me! Next, I have found it very easy to navigate my way through this book as it is compiled in an order that even a crazy quilter can follow!! (Pun intended!). After the usual introduction and basics, J.Marsha has investigated ten ways to patch a crazy quilt. There are options to crazy patch a landscape, using strip piecing, a collage method and stained glass just a few. From there you head into a wonderful gallery of achievements, some truly beyond belief.Then Embroidery by Hand is discussed, particularly mentioned are very useful embroidery tips.

From here there is a wonderful large section on Stitch combinations and variations and I think this book stands alone in it's presentation of stitches and how they can be used in a crazy quilting setting. From Back Stitches to Straight stitches (A-Z) and everything in between, each stitch technique is illustrated, and then variations are explored, creating very new and different patterns to inspire.

Embellishments are dealt with in depth, investigating beads, buttons, cordings, motifs, ribbonwork and so forth. Every possible embellishment technique is discussed and developed. J. Marsha also introduces the new techniques of surface work, such as painting fabrics, foiling, stencils, rubbings and lots, lots more.

This is a book that will be in use all the time, with timeless ideas and new patterns for the avid crazy quilter. I thoroughly recommend this gorgeous resource to new and more advanced "crazies" alike.

4-0 out of 5 stars A great start to Crazy Quilting
Michler's Crazy Quilting, the Complete Guide, offers a nice overview of crazy quilt techniques.Quite a bit of the book is dedicated to the finishing stitches which was somewhat disappointing to me - I wanted just the crazy quilting techniques.I turn to Judith Montano's Elegant Stitches for stitchwork. That said, having both books will give you a complete library for this form of quilting.By the way - I love spiral-bound hard-back books! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars So much more than Hand Quilting Patterns
Linda Macho has created a definitive book on Quilting Patterns, and was first published in 1984. Little did Linda or Dover Publications realise that these patterns would be used for so much more than Hand Quilting.

In 2009, these patterns can be used not only for hand quilting, but for applique (hand or machine), and especially for machine quilting which is so popular these days. Linda takes the time to explain how to use the patterns, including marking your quilt, use of frames, assembling the quilt sandwich and impressively, how to hand quilt.Her illustrations are very easy to follow and well created. Linda talks about how to select quilting patterns to fit specific spaces, which is often a stumbling block for new quilters.Then there is the vast array of ready to use patterns, all printed on heavy stock, which could be used to create combined patterns or just stand alone creations. This is a great sourcebook and I thoroughly recommend it for every quilters library.

5-0 out of 5 stars Quilting Patterns: 110 Full Size Ready to Use Designs and Complete Instructions
This is a wonderful book for anyone who quilts.There are many designs broken up into sections.Each section has a variety of sizes for different size blocks. The alternating of every other page will allow for easier tracing or coping for use. A creative expression in designs makes this an excellent easy to use book with designs for the veteran quilter or those just getting started.

Usefull book. Plenty of nice patterns. No text. Many may wish to copy them out of the book to larger formats. Very pleased.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good value for the price
These aren't awe-inspiring quilting designs; I doubt you'll say Wow even once. But there are more quilting designs here than in the "60 machine quilting designs" book (which I also own), and they all seem useful and, well, *nice*. The price is right, too, so I'm glad I bought it.

Do note that there are relatively few border designs. Most of the designs are square or round.

Still, this is a decent addition to your library. And at its low price, it'll probably help you fill out an order to get free shipping! ... Read more
