Modern Machine Quilting Book Review



Reviewed by Jessica Carpender, Editor, FaveQuilts.com

Modern Machine Quilting is the book for the contemporary quilter who favors clean lines and bright colors. Author Catherine Redford brings her experience as a quilter who knew practice and perseverance were the keys to mastering machine quilting.

Once you have a standard sewing machine and the will to practice, Redford provides the rest of the tools you'll need to create a perfect finished quilt on your home machine. You'll learn the basics of using your machine, how to quilt with the walking foot, and many other tips and tricks for free motion quilting.

A pretty cool aspect of the design in this book is it's really made to be your own journal as you learn to quilt. The margins have gridded space to jot down notes, which is my favorite feature. There are tables to make note of your preferences, as well. This could be 'the' quilting book that you pass down to your grandchildren, filled with Redford's practical learning tips, as well as your own tips and tricks. Redford gives you real space to cultivate your personal quilting style.

There are plenty of visual guides to help you understand the written explanations. The photos are bright and clear. I think the page design of this book is a great asset – it's in a magazine format that makes it easy to absorb all of the information and advice.

Not only does this book offer lessons in quilting, it also offers four basic quilting projects including placemats and a log cabin style quilt pattern.
