The Longarm Quilting Workbook is a fabulously thought out book from the beginning to the end. Teresa Silva begins in chapter 1, by considering what you might need when contemplating acquiring a longarm. From size to features, standup or sit down setups. She gives a rundown on all the materials, supplies and tools that you may want to have on hand, too.
Once you are ready to quilt there is a whole section on motifs in the Longarm Quilting Workbook… from simple lines and squiggles to the more fun and elaborate feather motifs. However, she also includes ribbon candy, swirls, clamshells, and beadboard to name a few. In another chapter, she covers how to get better and freer using doodling and drawing to help you loosen up and quilt with confidence.
Chapter 4 has several quick quilt patterns for putting in to practice some of the motifs and quilting designs illustrated in the book. These patterns go together fast to get you quilting fast.
The last chapter includes a full-color quilt gallery of quilts quilted by the author. There is a full view of the quilt and close up shots of the quilting. The entire book is filled with close-ups quilting and of each motif as it is illustrated and described.
