Want to learn more about machine quilting on both kinds of machines? The Ultimate Guide to Machine Quilting will double your know-how, your progress, and your fun.

The layout of the book makes it easy to compare each author’s approach to 10 different step-by-step quilt patterns. Open the book to any pattern and you’ll find Angela’s visual tips and advice for long-armers on one side (in teal); see Christa’s visual tips and advice on the facing page (in orange). Both sets of advice are for the same quilt pattern, so you’ll see all the dramatic differences quilting can make.

machine quilting ideas

Each author shares not only how to machine quilt on her choice of machine, but when, where, and why certain designs and motifs are better suited to long-arm or sit-down machines. And once you can answer those questions, a whole new world of machine-quilting freedom will open up to you.

Take a look at what quilters are already saying about The Ultimate Guide to Machine Quilting at ShopMartingale.com:

The Ultimate Guide to Machine QuiltingFrom Katy: Five-stars “This is an amazing resource for quilters of all machine shapes and sizes . . . an invaluable number of tips and tricks for more awkward areas that you could encounter in any quilt.”

From Melissa: Five-stars “It really feels like you are sitting alongside Angela and Christa and getting to pick their brains on every little quilting decision they make . . . I know I will learn new little tidbits each time I pick it up. Fantastic!!!!”

Directionally-Challenged-quilt
Example of two approaches to the Directionally Challenged quilt from the book: Angela’s on the left, Christa’s on the right.

From Holly: Five-stars “The use of various simply pieced project quilts to demonstrate techniques and provide practice is something that I was glad to see . . . the ability to piece the same top and then try to imitate the techniques is a definite plus for me.”

From Jackie: Five-stars “The book switches back and forth between the two authors in such a way that you feel as though you are part of a conversation between Angela and Christa. So grab a chair, a cup of coffee, and join the conversation. You’ll be glad you did.”

  • I’ve been doing machine quilting on my Pfaff Ambition 1.0 for about 9 months now and I’m still learning A LOT! I’ve been doing more free-motion to get comfortable but I still struggle keeping my motion smooth, especially on bigger quilts. I’ve been reading about this book all over the place…if I don’t win it, I’m gonna have to buy it 😉

    —Sharon on April 20, 2016
  • My HQ16 is robot driven so I haven’t ventured into driving it myself. This book may be just what I need.

    —BJ Stultz on April 20, 2016
  • I have bought a home sewing machine that will now accommodate quilting, now it is just getting my nerve up to try it!!

    —DanyseF on April 20, 2016
  • I am a wannabee and this book looks like the wealth of knowledge resource I need. I would love to win one!

    —Mary McLaughlin on April 20, 2016
  • I am a beginner. I would love to learn how to machine quilt like Christa and Angela and learn their helpful tricks and tips!

    —Linda B on April 20, 2016
  • I’ve been piecing for a long time but would consider myself still learning and not very good yet at the quilting stage.

    —LeAnne L on April 20, 2016
  • I have quilted a lot of quilts on my domestic sewing machine but have rented a local long arm a few times and want to purchase my own. This book would be amazing to have to increase my repertoire in both areas.

    —Tara Starzomski on April 20, 2016
  • I am brand new to machine quilting. I need all the help I can get! 🙂

    —Cathy on April 20, 2016
  • What very talented young women! So nice that they are willing to share their expertise.

    —Gail on April 20, 2016
  • I’ve machine quilted several projects on my home machine, but am far, far from an expert! I have trouble getting the stitches even, and keeping the stitches from ‘jumping’ when I am trying to wrangle larger projects. I’m really interested in seeing Christa’s suggestions, especially for larger projects!

    Barbara Johnson on April 20, 2016
  • This looks like the perfect book for quilters who want to know what’s the difference between longarm and shorter machine quilting practices. As someone who wants to learn both, I would consider this book a 2-for-1 deal because of the two experts offering advice and inspiration. Sure wish the two of them would do a class together at IQF some year! 🙂

    —stephanie on April 20, 2016
  • I bought the Gammill Charm and have only done a few a few small quilts so I am only a true novice at the art of free motion quilting and could use some more help at becoming a true artist. Thanks got this opportunity😍

    —Mary on April 20, 2016
  • This would be great to have, I’m always stuck for ideas on what to do when quilting my blankets……

    —Donna on April 20, 2016
  • I’m just getting started and really, really need help. This book would be perfect.

    —Lynda Nunez on April 20, 2016
  • Just really getting started… intimidating!

    —Regina on April 20, 2016
  • I’m closer to ‘just getting started’. I need to do more practice pieces with designs that are new to me instead of reverting to the designs I know I can do.

    —MoeWest on April 20, 2016
  • I wish I was farther along in machine quilting! I have done some smaller projects on my Brother sewing machine, but I’m still struggling with basic stippling. I’m taking long-arm classes next week at my local quilt shop and then I’ll be able to rent their long-arm machine. I’m really excited to give long-arm quilting a try! I’m ready to learn some design as well as techniques and would love to have your new book. Thank you for putting both quilting options in one book!

    —Debbie Purvines on April 20, 2016
  • As far as FMQ I’m just getting started.. I’m terrified of it, but did a little on a baby blanket and a BOM I’m working on, so I’m getting more comfortable, but the thought of a FULL quilt still sends me to the corner quivering!

    Debbie D on April 20, 2016
  • Like to quilt my own with continuous designs on home machine but considering on buying long arm and quilting as a business Would like to win this book

    —LizAnn Lizotte on April 20, 2016
  • I have bee practicing for a while, but still feel I have a long way to go.

    —Pat R on April 20, 2016
  • Just beyond a beginner, hoping for more.

    —Rita S on April 20, 2016
  • I have had a long-arm machine for about 15 years and worked commercially until I retired recently. I am always on the look-out for new quilting ideas though.

    —Colleen on April 20, 2016
  • I have been practicing and trying to get better, also been trying it out with ruler quilting.

    —Karen on April 20, 2016
  • I’ve been machine quilting for several years, but it seems I can never get enough books on the topic. I admire both of these authors, so I’ll be on the look out for the book!

    —Karen in Breezy Point on April 20, 2016
  • I’m no where on the machine-quilting continuum….I have several quilt tops made but when I go to quilt them I just get over whelmed and fold them back up and put them away….Don’t know where to start, so I just keep making quilt tops in hope that one day I will actually get them quilted.

    —sandie on April 20, 2016
  • Thanks so much for the giveaway! I quilt on my home machine. I have so many tops that need to be completed. Any help in that area is greatly appreciated.

    —Louise on April 20, 2016
  • I’ve been doing charity quilts for about 3 years now and have been practicing with free motion quilting. I also use embroidery designs to quilt my blocks.

    —Kathy on April 20, 2016
  • I have taken many classes on machine quilting over the years. Never practiced enough or had the confidence to be any good. I would love to win this book and give it a try. Thank you.

    —Margaret M on April 20, 2016
  • Wow! I have been machine quilting on my Bernina for many years. Don’t know that I would consider myself a "Pro" by any means, but I am way-better than I used to be.
    This looks like a book I’ve got to have!

    —Nancy on April 20, 2016
  • As a hand-quilter, I’m trying to get up the courage to try machine quilting. It looks like fun!

    —Nell on April 20, 2016
  • I would love to learn how to machine quilt on my home machine. I’ve done a bit of straight-line in-the-ditch quilting, but would like to do much more.

    This looks like a great book. Thanks for the opportunity to win it.

    B from Canada

    —B from Canada on April 20, 2016
  • I’m an intermediate machine quilter. I own a sit-down mid-arm machine and LOVE quilting on it. It makes it so much easier than quilting on my domestic machine.

    —MaryBeth on April 20, 2016
  • I’m just getting started trying machine quilting

    —Marthese on April 20, 2016
  • Wow, I amazed at the differences in the photos you showed, for example the 2 different versions of quilting that 4 petaled flower -the look is completely different depending on how it was quilted. And I guess my brain has been limited (I am a novice home machine quilter), because the quilting on those flying geese just blew me away. Seems like a very good book and I love the approach of having these two talented ladies show you what can be done! Congrats to them both.

    —Jane Gehring on April 20, 2016
  • I have been practicing for a while both on my home machine and on a long-arm machine. This book could move me to the next level!

    —Terry on April 20, 2016
  • Getting started – need all the help I can get!

    —Charlotte on April 20, 2016
  • Just getting started. Still prefer to hand quilt.

    —Karen on April 20, 2016
  • I have done a little home machine quilting–on a "T" quilt made for my granddaughter and on a challenge quilt called "The Iron Quilter" from Missouri Star–am planning to rent time on a Long Arm and anxious to see if I like that method better.

    —Barb K. on April 20, 2016
  • Still struggling – but determined not to give up!

    —Laurel on April 20, 2016
  • Just getting started. I am pretty much limited to stitch in the ditch or loopy loops. I would love some advise on how to increase my confidence and my knowledge

    —Catherine on April 20, 2016
  • I have been trying to learn to quilt on my home machine. Mostly, it’s frustrating, I am not going to quit, but I sure could use some excellent advice. I love the looks of all the varied designs and really want to try them all. I would love the help of the experts and this book!

    —Kris on April 20, 2016
  • I’m just learning on a long arm and would love to have ideas and pictures to help me along. I get in a rut and just want to do meandering and there’s so much more I could do.

    —Mary on April 20, 2016
  • I am a beginner at machine quilting and just looking for information and inspiration. This book would be perfect for me.

    Vicki on April 20, 2016
  • Just a beginner. I only do small table runners or wall hangings. Anything big I let someone else do. Looks like a great book.

    —Collette Morton on April 20, 2016
  • I’d say I’m a beginner. Stitch in the ditch is fine and I’ve started doing a little free motion, on my Janome 8900.

    —Sue on April 20, 2016
  • Just getting started with a longarm so I’m looking for all types of patterns and how to do them.

    —Connie on April 20, 2016
  • I would love to have this book. Big fan of Christa, like her style of teaching and sharing. Most of the year I live in Baja California Sur, Mexico. so having the online and books have been my go to for my learning to quilt. I’m just starting to learn to "quilt" I love the ideal of both long arm and sit down on the same pattern.

    —Julie on April 20, 2016
  • Have been using pantographs on my Nolting Fun machine but really need to win this book for that extra incentive to do free motion. Thanks for the opportunity!

    —Garnet on April 20, 2016
  • Although I do all my own quilting on my home sewing machine, I have relied on pretty basic straight-line designs for the most part. I particularly like using a serpentine stich in closely-spaced rows – but – I would definitely like to learn something with a little more pizzazz! Thank you for the chance to win this book!

    —Margaret Lawrence on April 20, 2016
  • I’m barely past beginner, even though I’ve had my HQ Avante for almost 4 years. I usually only quilt when I have a baby or charity quilt that needs to be done. Need a lot of help on lining up pantograph rows so that I don’t overlap them. I’d love to have the book.

    —Evelyn Johnson on April 20, 2016
  • Still trying to make the big jump to machine quilting. Would love some hints!

    —mary oddan on April 20, 2016
  • I wing it, should learn to do it properly, but I just start and go with my sit down machine.

    —Karen on April 20, 2016
  • just beginning

    —Susan LElack on April 20, 2016
  • Still do hand quilting, would like to try machine quilting sometime though. I probably would not have so many quilts sitting around waiting to be finished if I went that route.

    —Debbie Clayton on April 20, 2016
  • I’m going to my first machine quilting class this Saturday. For two years I have mainly done straight line quilting, and I want to learn how to do other things.

    —Pat on April 20, 2016
  • I’m a beginner using my home sewing machine. Could definitely use the help that this book offers. Thanks for the opportunity to win it!!!

    —Bea on April 20, 2016
  • I am a half-practiced beginner. I can do more on my home machine than on my friend’s longarm. But I can assure you that I stipple very well. I would love to have and use this book in my repertoire. Thank you for this opportunity.

    —Janey on April 20, 2016
  • I have done a lot of straight line quilting with my Baby Lock Symphony and a walking foot, just couldn’t get the hang of free motion quilting with her. Since I’ve tried my vintage Singer 15-91 for free motion, I’m having a great time practicing. I find it difficult to figure out what designs to use for free motion.

    —Kathi Ernst on April 20, 2016
  • i feel like a beginner even though i have machine quilted on my sewing machine. i have only quilted one twin quilt for my grandson. i have 3 more grandchildren so i need to get past feeling like a beginner! i would love to win this book to receive the help i need.

    —Louise Fredieu on April 20, 2016
  • Been practicing for a while but I never turn down a chance to learn something new. My goal is to purchase a long arm when I retire in 3 years. This book looks like a great tool to own. Thank you for the chance to win a copy.

    —Cheryl Buchanan on April 20, 2016
  • I have been free motion quilting for a while and love it! I sometimes think I piece just so I can FMQ! Thanks.

    —Joanne on April 20, 2016
  • I am still a beginner. I have like 10 quilts basted and ready to go, but I get hung up in the quilting part!

    —Helen on April 20, 2016
  • I’m probably an advance beginner. I do some free motion on my home machine, but have a hard time figuring out HOW I should fill spaces. It looks like this book would help with quilting design.

    —Ginny on April 20, 2016
  • I use boards on my longarm but would love to become proficient with free motion quilting.

    —Joanne Wilson on April 20, 2016
  • I’m somewhere in the middle on both longarm and domestic.

    —Diane on April 20, 2016
  • I am still in the "working at it" phase of my quilting; I think I will always be there because I’m not a natural artist and have to consciously work at each motif I lay down no matter how many times I’ve done it in the past. Ideas for quilting are my biggest road blocks. This book would definitely be a plus in my go-to books. I have both a long-arm and a home sewing machine I work on quilting with and depending on what I’m working on depends on what machine I use.

    —Colette on April 20, 2016
  • I am intimidated with free motion quilting especially keeping the stitches even and neat looking. Would love some ideas and tips on quilting properly to bolster my self esteem.

    —Rosalie Knoll on April 20, 2016
  • Sounds like a fabulous resource to use with my new mid-arm quilter. I am anxious to learn all I can about machine quilting and would love to win this book!

    —Diane on April 20, 2016
  • I am just starting out to learn how to machine quilt and have used a longarm once. What a valuable book this would be. Thanks for the opportunity to win it.

    —Shaireen on April 20, 2016
  • I’m still in the beginning stage but would love to become more proficient.

    —carol gearey on April 20, 2016
  • I have machine quilted before. With FMQ I am a confident beginner. I like the work of both of these women and believe their new book would be a welcome addition to any quilter’s library.

    —MARY D on April 20, 2016
  • I didn’t have the courage to start . Would be awesome to give it a try!

    Martina on April 20, 2016
  • I have rented time on a long arm machine to do a handful of my quilts. I have also done a few on my sewing machine, so I would say that I’m still trying to get comfortable and more experienced with the process! This book would be most helpful since it uses both approaches to quilting that would be most inspirational to me. Thanks!

    —Marie Chat on April 20, 2016
  • I guess I’m still getting started. I’ve done stitch in the ditch and some echo. I did take a class and have practiced but I’m not confident.

    —Diana Salmon on April 20, 2016
  • I am coming along nicely, I think. On my home machine, the largest quilt I can manage is a lap quilt. More instruction is always helpful!

    Gail G on April 20, 2016
  • I’m just getting started. I took one class last summer, which ended up being a total waste of time & money. I’m taking an online class now, which is much, much better. But, I have not yet even started quilting a top by machine. I will, I will.

    —Suzanne on April 20, 2016
  • When it comes to the quilting itself I am definitely a novice. I think I need to do some more smaller projects to gain confidence to move on to my bed size tops.

    —Cindy on April 20, 2016
  • I am just beginning to motion quilt on my home machine.i have only did a small quilt.but I am getting ready to tackle a king size one all of hexes. I think that book woul ready help . Please an thank you.

    —Marjorie Joseph on April 20, 2016
  • I am still a beginner but have been wanting to try free motion quilting on my home sewing machine. This book looks like it will be a great resource for learning that skill.

    —Judy on April 20, 2016
  • MY BEST FRIEND USES A LONG ARM AND HAS BEEN TRYING TO TEACH ME. I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE THIS BOOK.

    —Mary Mac on April 20, 2016
  • I am a beginner…I have a Gammill Premier and have had it sitting for a few years without use…I need to get it back going and feel this will help me get it going again.

    —Kristie Michalowski on April 20, 2016
  • I do all my quilting on my home sewing machine or send off my big quilts to others. I am definitely a beginner – I have not dropped the feed dogs so it is straight line quilting for me so far. Am anxious to learn free motion quilting.

    —Kalen Hahn on April 20, 2016
  • Practicing a bit for a bit. Love Christa’s first book Machine Quilting w/Style, so I know this one is just as great of a collaboration w/another ace quilter.

    —Diane B on April 20, 2016
  • What a great book! I’ve started quilting on a long arm but am definitely still a beginner, I can use the help!

    —Karen Nelson on April 20, 2016
  • I am somewhat a beginner. I have done simple straight line quilting on nap mats. I realized I need a lot of practice. I am getting back into quilting and would love to be able to get it right. I have sewn all my life, but quilting has been hit and miss for me which I believe is because of feeling of my quilting isn’t going to look good. I am ready to get started.
    thank you.

    —MARIE on April 20, 2016
  • I’ve been practicing–seems like forever! I have Christa’s first book and would love this one to go with it!

    —Shelor on April 20, 2016
  • I have done some straight line quilting. Waiting for my local shop to have some free motion lessons available. I have a good sewing machine, not a long arm, so I think it will be a challenge quilting a large size quilt. I am really looking forward to learning that skill.

    —Sharee on April 20, 2016
  • I am somewhat a beginner. I have done simple straight line quilting on nap mats. I realized I need a lot of practice. I am getting back into quilting and would love to be able to get it right. I have sewn all my life, but quilting has been hit and miss for me which I believe is because of feeling of my quilting isn’t going to look good. I am ready to get started. I have a BabyLock ESE which I want to get a machine for regular sewing and quilting.
    thank you.

    —MARIE on April 20, 2016
  • I have quilted some on both my home machine and the long arm I have had for a while. I am not so good at actual designs (just meandering). I would love to be better and I know practice, practice, practice does it. Help and suggestions are always nice additions to the practice.

    —Cindy F on April 20, 2016
  • I would love to have this book. At times I’m lost as to how to machine quilt my quilts.

    —Sona on April 20, 2016
  • I am just getting started… this looks like a great book !

    —Nancy on April 20, 2016
  • In years, I have been quilting on my home sewing machine for quite a while. There’s never enough time to sew and quilt as much as I would like. In the number of quilts done, not so many — 4 large quilts and many small items. I knew nothing about machine quilting with my first small wall hanging, but I had fun and it was sure faster than hand quilting. I still struggle with coming up with quilt designs that complement the piecing. I like the idea of having the same quilt shown with quilting on a longarm and on a sewing machine.

    Bonnie Trahan on April 20, 2016
  • Been practicing for a while, and have accomplished only a couple of moderate successes at my sit down machine. I have a long way to go yet.

    —Jean McD on April 20, 2016
  • I should be further along after all these years! I am still a beginner.

    —Pat on April 20, 2016
  • Ohhh what a great book to have. I have been quilting, sewing for about 40 years and always can use some more tips. I use my Pfaff 1.5 and love it for quilting and embroidery.

    Thanks for the chance to win; if not may have to purchase it ..

    —Diana G on April 20, 2016
  • I am a beginning quilter and the only way I have quilted has been in the ditch and straight lines going diagonally across the whole quilt 3 inches apart.

    —Sharon Fiegle on April 20, 2016
  • I am a beginner

    Bonnie Epperson on April 20, 2016
  • I am a beginner, but am looking forward to learning and practicing to get better or even good at it.

    —Jennie Wallick on April 20, 2016
  • I’ve been quilting for a long time, and still learn from each quilt. I’ve been exploring more free-motion quilting lately.

    —Sally on April 20, 2016
  • I am a beginner so this book would really be a great asset to have…looks like it would be encouraging as well as instructive…

    —Carolyn S on April 20, 2016
  • I’ve been practicing awhile on my home sewing machine. I’ve been trying to use a wider variety of patterns and I think this book would be helpful.

    —Louise Warren on April 20, 2016
  • Very much a frustrated beginner. I read about quilting more than I attempt it.

    —Laura on April 20, 2016
  • I’m still very much a beginner on machine quilting and am anxious to learn more. This looks like a must-have book!

    Sally Anderson on April 20, 2016
  • I am an intermediate quilter but I tend to stick to what I know. I will venture with new techniques on smaller projects but am still intimidated by larger quilts. Would love to win this book to increase my confidence!

    —Jill on April 20, 2016
  • Just getting started- I’ve done a few straight line designs w/ my walking foot but not much FMQ on my home machine

    —Sandy on April 20, 2016
  • I really need help. Just quilt in the ditch with my machine. Your book sounds like just what I need !

    —Nancy C on April 20, 2016
  • I have been a hand quilter for years and just recently started machine quilting and need all the help I can get. Need this book.

    —Rose Landon on April 20, 2016
  • I am getting started and about half-way through my first quilt. It is a combination of hand quilting & machine quilting & is my own design. Practicing some qulting techniques, such as stippling & circles- a big step for me before it completion!

    —Susan Spiers on April 20, 2016
  • I have done some FMQ and feel comfortable doing it, but have not mastered feathers, and some of the fancier designs. I have come to a hill, and can’t seem to get to the top.

    —Janet T on April 20, 2016
  • I have machine quilted for a while but haven’t advanced much from some basics.

    —Kathy h on April 20, 2016
  • This book looks super! I myself would like to do a little machine quilting with my sewing machine but don’t know where to start. My daughter has been contemplating a long arm machine for quite a while and there’s information for quilting on that too. Looks like a win, win!

  • I have quilted probably 5-6 items on my Pfaff Ambition Essential – all free motion stippling. I can’t figure out any other way on my machine. I have also quilted 4-5 quilts on my friend’s short arm quilter – a Grand Quilter. When I use that, I do free motion swirls. I would love to learn new techniques, and methods, to add variety to my quilting.

    —Nancy Harvey on April 20, 2016
  • I’ve been practicing for awhile but am still very nervous about starting to quilt a quilt as I don’t feel confident I’ve chosen the best method, design, etc.

    This book looks wonderful and educational, especially showing how different methods and designs look on the same quilt. Thanks for the opportunity to win this book and I really hope I do!

    —Darlene Miley on April 20, 2016
  • Well I have done some machine quilting. The more I do the better I get. I guess I would say intermediate. I certainly need more practice and I always need ideas on how to quilt the quilt 🙂 It is great to get ideas from others and tweak them a little to make them your own. Love the book!!!

    —Karen Keeler on April 20, 2016
  • I’m comfortable sewing with the walking foot but FMQ is still a struggle. I’m trying to be better about practicing but having to refit my sewing machine each time is a sticking point for me. I know, how much time does that take? At any rate, I feel that having a good book as a guide would be quite helpful in my endeavor.

    —Ann D on April 20, 2016
  • I have had a Handi Quilter Avante for 7 years now and I am always learning about how to free motion quilt. This book would be a great tool!

    —Anne on April 20, 2016
  • I’m been practicing for a while on my home machine, but I’m planning to purchase a long-arm. So I’ll definitely be a beginner again. Either way, this book would be a great asset.

    —John Trundle on April 20, 2016
  • I would say I am an intermediate machine quilter. I use my domestic sewing machine. Walking foot quilting is easy, peasy for me and I am getting better at my free motion with each project. Every time I read a new book I find something that makes free motion easier. Both Angela and Christa are quilters who have helped me a great deal on my journey.

    —Audrey on April 20, 2016

    —Jean Biette on April 20, 2016

    —Linda Sheppard on April 20, 2016

    —Pati Cook on April 20, 2016

    Melissa on April 20, 2016
  • I’m celebrating my 9th year as a long arm quilter! I think that I still have much to learn as there are always new designs and techniques that I want to try! This book looks like a great resource for new quilters as well as veteran quilters!

    —Vicki Sprain on April 20, 2016
  • I am a beginner. this book looks like it would be a great book for any quilter. I have quilted a couple of baby quilts on my home sewing machine, but they were not very good — I figure the baby won’t know. This looks like it would really help a lot!!!!

    —Nancy Herd on April 20, 2016
  • I feel like I’m in between "just starting" and "been practicing for a while". I have completed many quilts and am somewhat confident in my FMQ skills, but I know I have a long way to go, and I want to learn lots of new techniques!

  • I practice as much as possible and definitely improving. It’s hard to choose what to quilt and where. This book would be helpful for that.

    —Maureen Rawson on April 20, 2016
  • "been practicing for a while"… I’ve done a few smaller quilts (baby size and smaller) on my home machine. Then I found a shop that will let me rent a long-arm so I can quilt the larger sizes. Oh baby! Now I’m really hooked! The first time on the long-arm was a-maz-ing! It wasn’t as good as paying a professional, but I didn’t care. I can now quilt my own quilts!! This book would be a great resource for me as I’m now learning to quilt on both machines. Thank you.

    —Susan Madden on April 20, 2016

    —Kate B. on April 20, 2016
  • Just completed a class in basic machine quilting which was wonderful and full of ideas for getting started. Now comes the practice, practice, practice…it would be terrific to have this book as a guide. Definitely would have reinforce what I was taught as well as help me practically.

    —ADKKate on April 20, 2016
  • I would say a confident beginner – for some reason I can’t get past the stipple or ITD quilting. I love the look of quilting but I have seen quilts that have too much and it takes away from the design of the quilt itself. Always practicing on kennel quilts and charity quilts, but I always seem to be on a deadline and don’t have a lot of time to spend on the quilting process. Would love some expert advice on how to get the creative juices flowing, I look at a top and go blank, having no idea of how to quilt it so fall back on the stipple.

  • Just beginning and need all the help I can get !

    —Janice on April 20, 2016
  • I’ve been doing the machine quilting on a few small lap quilts that my guild donates to the community. It’s a great way to practice and be productive at the same time. My quilting is improving with each one, and I hope I get better with more practice!

    —Susan Stanton on April 20, 2016
  • I have been practicing for a while. I have trouble with large projects on my home machine in keeping the stitches even. It bugs me when they are not uniform. So I wind up stitching in the ditch a lot. I will get there one day, I hope.

    —Cynthia Wilbanks on April 20, 2016

    —Lori Morton on April 20, 2016
  • I love the look of machine quilting, but have not done a lot of it. I would like to challenge myself, but do not accept failure too well. I have always wanted to learn to machine quilt using my own machine,but shy away from it. I especially like the finish it gives to a quilt.
    I have been quilting for over 16 years, but have yet to accomplish machine quilting.

    —Susan Clarkson on April 20, 2016
  • I have been quilting for a while but was so intimidated by free motion. I took a class on line and I learned a lot. but now help is need when it comes to designing a quilt top.

  • I’m a pro when it comes to making the top of a quilt but NO WAY have I tried quilting the whole thing. If I read a good book that shows me how then I would give it a try!

    —Kathy on April 21, 2016
  • I’ve been machine quilting for a while, but there’s always more to learn!

    —Gwen Wehner on April 21, 2016
  • Just peeking at the layout of pages and different approaches two known quilters have towards machine quilter is exciting. This is doable and rakes the timid or rusty quilters out of their safe zone into a fun zone. Accomplished quilters will I am sure learn new approaches and take off to experiment. What’s not to like….well not having the book yet! Nice release and terrific offer to share a. Only with your loyal fans….way to go Martingale

  • I never get to practice enough to get beyond the ‘beginner’ status. I would love to have a longarm machine – I blame my uneven stitching on not having a ‘stitch regulator’ on my little home machine. Oh, boy! Do I ever need help!

    —janG on April 21, 2016

    —Barbara on April 22, 2016
  • I am definitely on the starting end. The quilting I have done is mainly just straight line. I did make two t-shirt quilts where I tried to get a little creative using the walking foot which didn’t go too badly. But I definitely have a very long way to go. I do want to learn however.

    —Nancy A on April 22, 2016
  • Have been quilting on both my domestic machine and at my standup frame for quite a few years. However I am not very proficient and in much need of help. Confidence is something I need to develop and this book looks like it’s full of great info.

    —Nancy Rollins on April 22, 2016
  • I have only quilted "in the ditch" and outline stitched on my pieces so far, So I have so much to learn. I love the idea of quilting on my home machine since I have no room for a long-arm. This book would be wonderful to own with all its ideas and advice.

    —Kathie on April 22, 2016

    —Donna on April 22, 2016
  • I am just beginning to quilt.
    any and all help welcome

    —Trina Aultman on April 22, 2016
  • I’m on the starting end. I have a book by Angela Walters already, but need more handholding! What I really need is a long arm, but have only my tabletop domestic. Need a better table to work on, too, and lots of time to practice. But, I get a lot from reading the books, it helps when you get a chance to sit down and do it.

    —madeline wallace on April 22, 2016
  • I’ve done some machine quilting with a walking foot and actually bought a free motion foot but I’m a little afraid of trying free motion…would love the book!

    —carol bakaj on April 22, 2016
  • I rent a long arm, but mostly use pantographs. I don’t really like using my domestic machine unless it’s too small to put on a long arm. I really don’t feel like a "master" at either.

    Laura B on April 22, 2016
  • I’ve been practice for awhile now……still have a long way to go but starting to feel more confident.

    —Michelle Eacret on April 22, 2016

    Moira on April 22, 2016
  • Practicing for a while and still consider myself a newbie.

    —Allison C on April 22, 2016
  • I do some FMQ on my home machine, mostly small projects, but don ‘t feel my work is good enough. I would like to learn better techniques for doing machine quilting. I have thought about renting a long arm machine to try my luck on doing a larger project. Love the idea of these two pros sharing their expertise in this dual format. I can see that this book would be very helpful.

    —Judy Stevens on April 22, 2016
  • Still quilting with a walking foot. Haven’t attempted FMQ in quite a while. Definitely beginner status!

    Brenda Ackerman on April 22, 2016
  • I’ve taken several classes for Free motion machine quilting on my domestic machine (Bernina 880). Do pretty well with small items (such as table runners and smaller), but really need help and advice for larger quilts.

    —Lillian K on April 22, 2016
  • I always feel like I am just starting because I go too long between projects to remember the skills. I like using a walking foot but I can’t seem to get the groove for free motion. This sounds like a great book.

    —Elizabeth Teerlink on April 22, 2016
  • I’d still consider myself a beginner. I’ve taken a few classes: Dot-to-Dot Craftsy one, home machine quilting and free-motion. I know I need to practice more to feel comfortable about all the quilts I need to get quilted! I’d love to have more info. and ideas of how to quilt different sections. Hope to win a copy!

    —Linda on April 23, 2016

    —Pearl on April 24, 2016
