52 Free-Motion Quilting Motifs and Fillers

These are the designs you are looking for – from simple stipples and loops to more complicated geometric and straight-line fillers. With Susan’s expert guidance and a little practice, you can expand your quilting repertoire with dozens of new designs. An image of each motif has been clearly drawn in black-and-white and included on the screen as Susan sews. Her illustrations make it easy to see where the quilting starts and stops, and how the completed design should look. All of the designs are included with a printable PDF along with this video, so you can follow along as you practice.”  68 minutes. $24.99
