About the Author

Christina Cameli is a nurse-midwife and quilter who enjoys finishing quilts on her domestic machine in addition to teaching free-motion quilting classes for beginners. She is the author of First Steps to Free-Motion Quilting and lives in Portland, Oregon.


In this sequel to her first book, Christina Cameli shows how quilters can turn nine simple shapes into multiple designs for quilting on domestic or longarm machines. Page after page of unique designs, with diagrams showing the stitching path for each, will inspire you to quilt your own projects with confidence. Fons and Porter's Easy Quilts, Summer 2015 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. 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. Library Journal Christina Camelli, best-selling author of First Steps to Free-Motion Quilting, returns with the perfect companion book to help you quilt unique patterns, using your home machine or longer. A member of the Portland Modern Quilt Guild, Christina infuses her fresh aesthetic and passion for teaching quilters new skills into 80+ innovative free-motion designs. Working from a seat of nine simple ships, such as circles, why lines, and loops, she walks you through the basic elements via easy--to-doodle illustrations. Take the design power to our needle as you stitch Christina's favorite continuous-line quilting patterns ranging from straightforward to striking. If you can doodle, you can do it! Workbox Magazine, February 2015 Are you looking to improve your free-motion quilting? Christina shows how easy (really!) it can be - on your long arm or domestic machine - using just nine simple shapes that help you create over 80 fabulous and beautiful designs from traditional to modern! Quilter's Connection for Canadian Quilters There are over 80 designs that spring from nine 'elements'. These arecombined and recombined to give endless possibilities.The 'elements' are circle, curvy lines, loops, drops, spirals, leaves, 's' curves, arcs andgrass. A brief description of each is given with diagrams and written instructions of how tosew them. This is a good foundation for moving onto the more complex designs but before you get to those, there are some considerations that are mapped out for you, which look at the practical aspects of these free-motion motifs. It's a great book for getting you to look beyond some of the more traditional stitches youmight stick to and to think about how you can adapt these basic stitches to create something more personal. Workshop on the Web If our guide to free-motion quilting has piqued your interest this issue, then there's a whole world of books to continue your new love affair with finishing your patchwork projects. This one is a new release from Stash Books and in it are pages and pages of designs to inspire your free-motion adventures. Christina Cameli covers the basics too - leading in with the ideas of traveling, echoing and foresight.

Quilt Now Magazine, April 2015 Cameli shows you how to turn nine simply-to-draw shapes-circles, loops, spirals, leaves, curving lines, drops, S curves, arcs and grass-into more than 80 different designs appropriate for a full range of quilted projects, whether quilted on domestic or longarm machines (hand quilters will also find plenty of inspiration in the combination of motifs).
