I have half a dozen or so books with quilting motifs to inspire me, but what sets this one apart from the others are the introduction pages, full of guidance on selecting motifs, adapting them to your projects, as well as marking the quilt top, with a handy table of marking tools featuring pros and cons of each one.

The quilting motifs are presented by theme: children and teens, flowers, geometric, hearts, etc., each with placement ideas for blocks of varied shapes as well as for borders. My favorite selections are the flowers, with the vines and borders coming in a close second. The index lists motifs by shape and size, expediting the selection task.

I have a few tops ready for quilting, and this book has arrived just in time. Its many motifs are making my fingers itch to quilt!
I turn to this book ALL the time for ideas on what to stitch into a quilt top. This, to me, is like the professional quilters Bible or go-to book.
