For each of the projects in this book there are instructions on putting the quilt together as well as quilting directions. In addition, there are examples of common mistakes and how to avoid them.

I love to quilt, but deciding on what to quilt in the empty spaces of your project can be intimidating. When I saw Secondary Designs I knew it would be perfect for me. It has so many ideas and instructions on how to come up with great quilting designs.

There are four projects in this book. For each project the author gives you instructions on how to piece the quilt top and how to quilt each section with the secondary quilting design. She gives you extensive step-by-step instructions on how to plan, measure, mark, and quilt the designs. If you are a visual learner you will appreciate the many photos and design drawings she has for examples.

There is also a CD included with two more projects and a look into her creative space. I am very excited to pick out one of these projects and get started.
