Machine Quilting review and Giveaway!

The Complete Guide to Machine Quilting is an inspiring book filled with ways to use your home sewing machine instead of a long arm machine or hand stitching an entire quilt. I personally don't own a longarm quilting machine and loath to hand stitch for long lengths of time. This seem like the perfect book for me. There are project ideas as well as quilting templates. I love how versatile this book is, perfect for a first time quilter or experienced seamstress. If you don't know how a quilt is constructed it shows you.
If you know how to construct a quilt but you want to add texture or dimensions to your projects, then it has templates for you. It even shows you how to change the templates a little to make a new designs!

I do my own machine quilting but am pretty much limited to stitch-in-the-ditch and stipple. If I want something more complicated I hand quilt. I need this book to advance my quilting skills.

I just started to make my quilts using my sewing machine three years ago,and machine quilting a month ago,I was a traditional, but so traditional,I made everything by hand, so now it was like you saw the sea for the first time, OMG, a total revolution, amazing, surprise myself everyday with the things I can do, so just give the opportunity I will show you my style.

I love making quilts but I am so bad about finishing them up. I normally end up just doing something boring on the top. This book might be just what I need to help me get a little further along!
