I was real excited when I heard about this book written by Melissa Marginet of Manitoba, Canada. I met Melissa earlier this year when she taught at Quilt Canada 2016 in Mississauga, Ontario. One of the class topics that was submitted back in 2015 really caught my eye and probably led to Melissa being selected to teach, was a class entitled: “Quilting with your feed dogs up”. So often we hear a lot of buzz about free motion quilting and we possibly neglect our trusty walking feet which can also do a superb job of quilting our quilts! Most of Melissa’s classes at Quilt Canada 2016 were fully booked and so you can imagine how pleased I was recently to hear she had written a book called “WALKING FOOT QUILTING DESIGNS”. The book is a little spiral bound softcover printed by “A Needle Pulling Thread” (Our top notch Canadian magazine publishers).
Naturally I ordered a copy right away – so easy to do online! It offers over 80 pages of great straight and curved line quilting that you can easily do using your walking foot without having to pull out your free motion foot (which makes so many people want to start hyperventilating?!) Nooooo…… here you can quilt with your feed dogs UP to your heart’s content with dozens and dozens of design ideas + hints and tips from Melissa. Here is one page to whet your appetite……books may be ordered on Melissa’s website or on Melissa’s Etsy shop
Here are the Contents pages to give you a good idea of the quilting delights in store for you:
