Review by Library Journal Reviews

Cameli (First Steps to Free-Motion Quilting) focuses on shape-based designs for her second book, in which she takes nine basic shapes (including circles, loops, drops, and spirals) and demonstrates how to use them in all-over free-motion quilting designs. Each of the patterns is presented on a spread, with text-based and illustrated directions for creating the design on the left page and a full-page sketch of the repeating design on the right-hand page. The arrangements vary in complexity, so there's as much here for beginners as there is for experienced free-motion quilters. VERDICT While the sketchbook-style presentation allows quilters to see clearly the designs without being distracted by fabric color or piecing, it would be helpful to view at least some of them on actual quilts. Still, Cameli provides abundant ideas and inspiration, and quilters who enjoy books by Angela Walters and Leah Day will find new designs to add to their free-motion quilting repertoire. [Page 82].
