This is the seventh title in the Dear Helen series by well-known American quilter and magazine columnist Helen Squire. Project patterns often tell you to “quilt as desired”; there is little information on what to quilt where to best enhance pieced or appliquéd tops. But this book will help you with that dilemma. The first chapter is full of hints and tips on where to quilt, followed by advice on “framing” quilted motifs so they stand out. Patterns are then grouped into the categories of traditional, continuous lines, scrolls and grids, with a final section on secondary patterns created by repeats of the same design. The quilting patterns provided are ready to trace and are suitable for hand or machine quilting. Suggestions are given as to how to mix and match the patterns to give the best effect and how to deal with borders and corners. This is a great resource for anyone who loves quilting patterns. However, if you want to quilt by machine, you will need to be competent at free-motion quilting before you try and tackle some of the more complex patterns.

Helen includes 115 one-of-a-kind patterns for hand or machine quilting, 36 placement diagrams for block and border possibilities, and 20 secondary designs using repeats. If quilting patterns have you puzzled, this book provides the perfect answer to “How should I quilt this?” (Posted on 2/20/07)
