I was a lucky girl on my birthday recently. My best friend gave me this lovely book. It has over 90 free motion designs to add texture and style to my next quilt.
Back Cover of the book: “Step out of stippling (makes me think of the workshops I teach called: Beyond boring stippling ……Liz)…..Be fearless with your free motion quilting! This unique sketchbook is filled with modern designs inspired by the world around us. Pebbles, waves, vines, and finials are just a few of the things you will find in Bethany’s hip and doddly quilting designs. You’ll also learn how to spot interesting patterns everywhere you look to translate into your quilting.
- Over 90 unique quilting designs for borders, blocks, and fillers – many are continuous-line.
- Fun, freeform shapes and lines give an imaginative spark to any quilt.
- Quilting diagrams show you how to put designs together for the most creative effect. “
Bethany is a professional longarm quilter in North Carolina, USA. She quilts for customers all over the US and even Switzerland.
A couple of pages definitely caught my eye, amongst others I can’t wait to try out: ferns & spiral shapes as I have long been fascinated by ferns and spirals. My Pinterest boards are full of beautiful images of these botanicals……Bethany has given me further inspiration to do more with these shapes as I free motion.

Don’t know about you, but I’m all inspired to get free motioning up a storm……..check out Bethany’s book and you might feel the same!
