My Blog

Hello, today it is my turn on the blog hop to talk about Teresa's (Quilting is My Bliss) new book. I am excited for Teresa and jumped at the chance to participate. Before I get started on the book, a little bit about how I know Teresa. I stated watching Teresa's quilting on social media feeds a couple of years ago. I saw how she developed her own quilting style and I was in the market for some quilters for my new book (New York Beauties and Flying Geese). I finally approached Teresa and asked if she would be willing to quilt a few of the quilts for my book. Fortunately she said yes, and since then I have sent her many quilts. We'll look at a few of the quilts a littler later in my post... When I first opened the book, I noticed that this would be a great book for someone that was considering the purchase of a longarm machine. The first chapter is devoted to some basics Basics on longarm quilting machines. Great information on the different types of machines that are available and things to consider before making a big purchase. There is other great information on various types of batting, threads, rulers and marking tools. Next is a section of various quilting motifs and how one can go about to create those. There are great instructions and wonderful illustrations. I recognized many of those techniques used in a variety of ways on many of the quilts that Teresa has quilting for me. The next section shows how one can create some stunning whole cloth quilts. Lastly there is a section of some beginner friendly quilts and information on how Teresa quilted them and then a gallery of quilts that Teresa has quilted. And now as promised..here is my gallery of quilts that Teresa has quilted for me.
