The subtitle for The Complete Guide to Machine Quilting by Joannie Zeier Poole is: How to use your home sewing machine to achieve hand-quilting effects. Serendipity! This book entered my life at a time when I have some special quilts to quilt but can’t afford custom quilting by a professional long-arm quilter. Since I developed a major case of hives the last time I tried to quilt with my domestic machine (the truth), this book provided hope that I could achieve quality results to honor the quilts.

 

Joannie Poole states her goals were: to write a classroom in a book, to show quilter’s how to use their home sewing machine to create heirloom quality projects, and to focus on an economical quilting method using the equipment they own. Her background, and the topic of her previous books, is heirloom machine quilting. In this book, written for a broader audience, she gives specific suggestions for supplies and techniques from start to finish for the quilting process. Several interesting background fillers are explained. The text is well-illustrated and uses examples from quilters around the world. Projects include a sewing tool caddy, polka dot lap quilt, toile twin bed quilt, and lovely heirloom baby bib. Armed with the author’s detailed advice and techniques to practice, I am now eager to tackle my special quilting projects with confidence!
