Free-Motion Quilting for Beginners – And Those Who Think They Can’t

Free-Motion Quilting for Beginners – And Those Who Think They Can’t by Molly Hanson is a great book for those of you who are still afraid you can’t quilt, because you can!  You just have to believe in yourself.  It takes practice, and you won’t be as good as you’d like when you start, but the more you do it, the better you will be.

One of the things suggested to give you practice is to do some sketching.  It helps develop the muscles that will also do the quilting.
