At the end of each is even a grid so that you can practise drawing your designs. Lori explains her inspiration to quilt, but advises that you "make the designs your own". "Have fun while quilting" she says and remember - "A quilt without personality is just a blanket!" Lori has lots of suggestions for setting up to quilt; what tension, foot or needle and thread to use and then talks about doodling and planning motifs to suit your quilt.
