Quilting Dot to Dot: Patterns for Today's Machine Quilter — Review by McCall's Quilting magazine
This book by Cheryl Barnes focuses on choosing and marking designs (including resizing and adapting them), as well as quilting basics for everyone--domestic-machine, longarm, and hand quilters. McCall’s Quilting magazine, July-August 2011, page 16. (Posted on 6/16/12)
Review of Quilting Dot-To-Dot: Patterns for Today's Machine — Review by Anonymous
Overall Rating
Noticing the similarity of connecting the dots to create pictures in children’s coloring books and drawing with a needle to create quilting designs, Cheryl Barnes has developed an easy to understand method of learning to machine quilt. Quilting Dot-to-Dot: Patterns for Today’s Machine Quilter (published by AQS) describes this method. By dividing quilting patterns into small sections of stitching, the quilter becomes familiar with repeated shapes and can begin stitching freehand easily. Practice exercises will progressively build your skills. There is comprehensive information on choosing the best design for your top as well as methods for marking quilts for stitching. Ninety pages of machine and pantograph designs will get you started. Review Source: New Zealand Quilter Magazine, Issue 55, page 35 (Posted on 5/18/07)
