Guide to Machine Quilting by Diane Gaudynski — Review by McCall's Quilting magazine
A must-have, in-depth reference by a true master quilter. Gorgeous photos, practical advice, and who wouldn't want to know how Diane makes her magic? -- McCall’s Quilting magazine, July-August 2011, page 16. (Posted on 6/16/12)
An invaluable resource — Review by The Quilter Magazine
Overall Rating
Diane Gaudynski is well known in the machine quilting world for her superb skill. Her previous release, "Guide to Machine Quilting," first published in 2002 and still in print, was a comprehensive guide to the craft and an instant classic in which she shared her award-winning techniques and vast knowledge of all aspects of quiltmaking and finishing. "Gaudynski's Machine Quilting Guidebook," called a "detailed road map to skilled machine quilting," is based on Diane's popular machine quilting series in "American Quilter" magazine. In this book, Diane provides the ins and outs of creating a design that improves accuracy and pattern fluidity. She dispels six common myths about machine quilting and includes techniques for several unmarked free-hand, free-motion designs, including spirals, leaves, fronds, and clamshells. The author also gives a detailed description of echo quilting and echo-quilted feathers, which are especially popular among quilters. This book is an invaluable resource for adding to one's general knowledge of machine-quilting skills and assists in solving some common problems encountered by machine quilters. The Quilter Magazine, September 2009, page 103. (Posted on 7/7/09)
