Step by step Free-Motion Quilting shares 9 simple shapes that allow us to create more than 80 different designs. Ms. Cameli first shows us the 9 shapes and some of the different forms the shape, such as a single unit, compact, fluid, elongated and combined. Step by step Free-Motion Quilting is a good reference for creating continuous or all over free-motion designs. The designs may be scaled for your own workspace or quilt without any specialized equipment. Just practice on paper with a pen.
She shows us the shape and how to create the shape on the left page and a full page fill on the right. The written description of how to create the design, creates a ‘mantra’ for rhythm and flow while quilting. For instance- “make a loose spiral, create a series of arcs around the outside with the points going outward, echo the arcs back around the outside”, repeat.
