suggestions for pattern books?

Recommended Posts

Well, I got the email today saying that my new Freedom is being prepared for shipping.  I'm itching to buy some pattern books so that I have lots of ideas to practice when she arrives.  Anyone have any favourites they would like to suggest?

The pocket guides to freehand designs by Darlene Epp, and DeLoa Jones sampler solutions and border patrol.

And there are tons of videos on YouTube to watch and learn from.

Linda R here on the forum has a good one also. I have used it several times. I do have both of the others mentioned and they were all worth the $$$$. Good luck.

If you buy the pocket guides, DeLoa's books and Linda Rechs sashing book, you won't need anymore for awhile.  They are really good books for quilting designs that you will use over and over on your quilts.  After you become familiar with your machine and know the direction you want to go in, you can check out other books and DVDs.  DeLoa's castle ruler and little one are also a must for ditch work.  I love her crosshatch rulers too, but you may not need them right now.  My advice would not to go overboard right away.

Deloa's books, Darlene's guides, any of Sue Patten's filler pattern books, and any of Karen McTavish's feather books. I haven't seen Linda Rech's, but I'll bet it's awesome because she's an awesome quilter.

Ditto all the above - I like Sally Terry's stuff too, good for a starter (in my opinion) because she shows how to take "basic shapes" and put them into free-hand designs.  Also Myrna Flicken on this forum! 

Congratulations and good luck!

In case you're looking for clickable links, here's the one for The Pocket Guides to Freehanding, now in their 13th year and still going strong. I just placed another order at the printers!
