I concur with anita55. Excellent book with clear explanations - definitely something that I will return to.

Free-Motion Machine Quilting by Don Linn is a wonderful book! Mr. Linn begins by giving you information about threads, tension, needles and a list of tools that he finds helpful. He talks about marking and how to baste your quilt sandwich together, such as using pins. Free-Motion Machine Quilting gives instructions about where to place your hands while quilting. From here, Linn starts a quilter using simple designs and working up to more complicated ones.

While reading this book, I felt an insurgence of hope and the feeling that I could achieve more in my quilting attempts; a knowing that with practice, I could do the complicated patterns. It seems as if Mr. Linn is looking over your shoulder telling you that you are doing a good job, while gently making suggestions and very mildly pointing out the problems, and how you can fix them in the future.

I would recommend this book to all machine quilters, beginners and the more advanced. I wished I could have had this book when I was doing my first attempts of machine quilting. It should encourage everyone who reads this book!
