Free Motion Framework by Jen Eskridge
Today, I wanted to let you know about a new book that just hit bookshelves. Free Motion Framework: Ten Wholecloth Quilt Designs by Jen Eskridge caught my interest immediately. Those that know me know I love free motion quilting and am always looking for new tricks or ways to improve. Jen is an enthusiastic teacher, and offers up quilting patterns and strategies to help build skills and create dynamic quilting designs, whether you are a long armer or free motioner. Don’t feel that you have to dive right in on a large quilt, this book has ten perfectly sized patterns to start quilting on fat quarter sized quilts. Which sounds so much more doable, right? I’m in love with the idea of tracing out the shapes and overall designs onto the fabric, then spending some time at the sewing machine filling the shapes in with all kinds of free motion motifs. Jen calls it accidentally making a whole cloth quilt, I love that.
