Natalia Whiting Bonner has enjoyed piecing quilt tops for more than twenty years. In 2007, she quit her job as a dental assistant and became a longarm quilter. She has won numerous awards and is a best-selling author.
Natalia Bonner knows a thing or two about free-motion quilting, already having two best-sellers behind her. In this book she provides clear step-by-step instructions for feather free-motion quilting for both domestic and longarm quilters. Today's contemporary quilts are often finished with modern free-motion techniques instead of traditional techniques. This book provides 68 block and border designs. Starting with single feather techniques, the book moves on to more complicated designs. Clear line drawings show how to stitch three types of feather. Then each of the 68 designs are shown with line drawings on top of a quilt and directional arrows. Superb book - I can't fault it and highly recommend it to anyone wanting to master feathers.* yarnsandfabrics.co.uk *
