Welcome to the Nancy Zieman blog stop along Pat Sloan’s Mega FUN Book Tour. Pat is kicking off the release of her new book, Teach Me to Machine Quilt. She takes a step-by-step beginner approach to machine quilting.

The book is full of great approaches to any machine quilting situation. One of Pat’s techniques that I found particularly innovative was her approach to machine quilting around appliqué shapes. In the pages of Teach Me to Machine Quilt, find the detailed instructions to design and fuse appliqué shapes.

Set up a straight guideline. Pat recommends painter’s tape. What a wonderful and simple solution!

Using the tape as a guide, Pat then illustrates how to stitch in straight lines; jumping over the appliqué shape.

    Looks like a wonderful new book. It should help all of us that try to machine quilt, I’ve done small items, but never attempted anything very big. This might help give me the courage to do bigger items.

    What a great tip! I would have never thought of that. It takes away some of the fear of machine quilting. Thanks for sharing – I’m looking forward to the reading the rest of the tips in the book!
