180 MORE Doodle Quilting Designs

badge for books with #creativegoodness copyBack in 2016, Martingale published 180 Doodle Quilting Designs : Free-Motion Ideas for Blocks, Borders and Beyond, compiled by Karen M. Burns and published by Martingale, which is still a very popular book for those interested in free-motion quilting.

This past summer, 180 MORE Doodle Quilting Designs: Free-Motion Ideas for Blocks, Borders and Corners was released.  You  may already have this book, or have had a chance to check it out in your favorite Quilt Shop, but I still wanted to take today to heighten awareness, as I think it is a “must have” book for anyone interested in building on their free-motion quilting skills, with expanding their use of beautiful doodle style designs.

PUBLISHERS INSIGHTS:

Doodle quilting has taken the quilt world by storm–and here are 180 more doodle designs at your fingertips! In this sequel to the best seller 180 Doodle Quilting Designs you’ll learn to free-motion quilt in three easy steps: trace a doodle, draw a doodle freehand, and then quilt a doodle with ease! Tracing and drawing help your eyes, hands, and muscles learn a motif. Practice makes progress. All three parts work together to create these delightful doodles in thread! Design sets for blocks, borders, and corners include lines, waves, squiggles, loops, curves, pebbles, swirls, curls, feathers, flowers, and more, plus an introductory section sets you up for success. There’s never been a better time to discover this fun way to machine quilt.

MY PERSPECTIVE

Both of the 180 Doodle Quilting Designs books are excellent resources, packed with beautiful doodle sketching with tips on how you can stitch this out on your projects.  And, considering they both come with 180 unique designs I think the price of this book is an excellent value, making both of these books a “must have” for any quilter who enjoys free-motion quilting and simply wants to expand their skill by being able to incorporate stunning and unique motifs into their projects!

I love how the 180 designs are organized:

  • Lines, Geometric, and Squiggles
  • Loops, Curves, and Pebbles
  • Swirls and Curls
  • Flowers
  • Doodle Fun
