The Ultimate Guide to Machine Quilting – A Book Review

I’m selective when it comes to buying books and I use the library for most things. I’m also a quilting pattern/technique junkie. So those books find a permanent place in my home,  most recently, The Ultimate Guide to Machine Quilting from That Patchwork Place (Martindale) by Angela Walters and Christa Watson.

I quilt on both a domestic and long arm machine and this book showcases the tips, tricks, tools, designs and so much more for both.  I own other books by both Christa and Angela which I refer to often. I was looking for more quilting motifs and inspiration and I found so much more.

I am always fascinated by same pattern quilts that have quilted differently. Not only do you get to see different outcomes, the patterns are included so you can give the motifs a try.

A lot of details were provided and many questions were answered. The types of questions you didn’t know you needed to ask. This is a reference book that you will pick up again and again.

The book switches back and forth between the two authors in such a way that you feel as though you are part of a conversation between Angela and Christa. So grab a chair, a cup of coffee and join the conversation. You’ll be glad you did. You can get a signed copy from either  Christa Watson or Angela Walters at their websites.

Anxious to get started with new things, on the journey, Jackie
