Diane Gaudynski is well known in the machine quilting world for her superb skill. Her previous release, "Guide to Machine Quilting," first published in 2002 and still in print, was a comprehensive guide to the craft and an instant classic in which she shared her award-winning techniques and vast knowledge of all aspects of quiltmaking and finishing. "Gaudynski's Machine Quilting Guidebook," called a "detailed road map to skilled machine quilting," is based on Diane's popular machine quilting series in "American Quilter" magazine. In this book, Diane provides the ins and outs of creating a design that improves accuracy and pattern fluidity. She dispels six common myths about machine quilting and includes techniques for several unmarked free-hand, free-motion designs, including spirals, leaves, fronds, and clamshells. The author also gives a detailed description of echo quilting and echo-quilted feathers, which are especially popular among quilters. This book is an invaluable resource for adding to one's general knowledge of machine-quilting skills and assists in solving some common problems encountered by machine quilters.
