Each lesson has a practice session and questions to help you evaluate what worked and where you may need a bit more practice. Whether you stitch your way through a lesson a day or save them for weekend quilting time, you'll soon be building skills and confidence, and quilting your projects with ease.

  • How to prevent drag or resistance when quilting a big quilt (page 44)
  • When to mark, and ways to avoid marking pitfalls (page 72)
  • How to create focal points and contrast with your quilting (page 116)
