    FMQ Books I Recommend

    I can't find my old post, so will post this again, since we have so many newbies as well as those who want to begin FMQ. I highly recommend taking a hands-on class with an instructor if at all possible, but one can learn a lot from watching YouTube videos by Leah Day & Patsy Thompson. My instructor recommended Eva Larkins' book for the class, & I've picked up others since then. The books will be cheaper from Amazon than your LQS. Amazon has the feature where you can "look inside" to get an idea of what the book is about. The books I have are:

    - MACHINE QUILTING MADE EASY - by Maurine Noble, That Patchwork Place

    - FREE-MOTION QUILTING MADE EASY - 186 DESIGNS FROM 8 SIMPLE SHAPES - by Eva A. Larkin - That Patchwork Place.

    - GUIDE TO MACHINE QUILTING - Diane Gaudynski - American Quilter's Society

    - FREE-MOTION QUILTING - Angela Walters - Stashbooks

    - SHAPE BY SHAPE - Angela Walters - Stashbooks (I just bought this one. It must be popular, as it was backordered & I had to wait for it to come.)

    - 501 QUILTING MOTIFS - DESIGNS FOR HAND OR MACHINE QUILTING - From the Editors of Quiltmaker Magazine - That Patchwork Place, Martingale Company. (This doesn't have FMQ instructions, but is a book of designs which can be used for various sizes of blocks & borders.)

    Happy Quilting! JCY

    I bought the 501 Quilting Motifs last night. I'm anxious to receive it.
