Review of Machine Quilting: A Primer.of Techniques — Review by Anonymous
Overall Rating
Award-winning designer Sue Nichols has packed this guide with advice, illustrations and a gallery of handsome blankets to inspire; all you need to know is how to use a sewing machine. Nichols takes it from there, explaining feet, threads, tools, techniques, even how to hold your work. She delves into free-motion, stippling, crosshatch and other techniques. It’s the kind of info you need to approach the craft with a steady hand. She’s so confident you’ll catch on, she has a handful of easy projects waiting for you at book’s end, including a sampler and a classic Amish design. - Jo Ann Magazine, Summer 2004 (Posted on 6/17/05)

Acclaimed quilter Sue Nickels shares her expertise in an in-depth look at machine quilting. The reader is entertained along the way with Sue’s helpful tips and insights. Readers will be glad to have both the clear illustrations and this handy, readable text for problem solving. Sue’s discussion about quilting those unwieldy queen– and king–size quilts is especially helpful. Three practice pieces are projects you’ll be thrilled to complete. If you’re serious about learning to machine quilt, this is one reference you shouldn’t be without. - Quilter’s Newsletter Magazine – June 2004
