A longtime hand-quilter, Deborah Poole experimented with using a sewing machine and found it to be the ideal tool for achieving impressive precision in quilting, not to mention speeding up the process considerably. Here Poole provides step-by-step instructions on how to best use both approaches to make feathers, create curved cross-hatching, and fit a design to the quilt border in 22 projects illustrated with color photographs, templates, and line drawings. Combining traditional designs with a few of Poole's own, the book includes such projects as Amish Curling Feathers, Free-Form Echo, Ribbon Candy, Mock Basket Weave, and the Incredible Egg and Dart.
