• Those who have tried and felt like they failed; and,
• Those ready to just give it a try for the first time with no idea how they will do.
Author and illustrator, Mitzie Schafer, improves your free motion quilting practice by teaching you to read your body in relationship to your quilting.

“I should preface this by saying that I’m not a confident free motion quilter – but this book makes me want to try! Mitzie outlines techniques and ideas that sound do-able, rather than overwhelming. The illustrations are delightful, and the in depth information gives a great jumping off point for getting in there and giving it a go.” Kristy Lea from Quilt Play

“Improve Your Practice: Free-Motion Quilting is a wonderful resource for both new and experienced free motion quilters. The quilting exercises and questions after each lesson make the quilter focus on how the quilting feels and ergonomics, which is better not only for the quilting but also the body. Improve Your Practice: Free-Motion Quilting contains well-illustrated instructions for many quilting patterns; the book makes you want to turn your sewing machine on and get quilting!” Cheryl Brickey from Meadow Mist Designs
