Mastering Quilt Marking
The accurate marking of quilts so as to preserve the fabric to be quilted and to create a welcoming canvas for quilting stitches is a very important part of quiltmaking--one that is usually only briefly touched upon in quilting books. Mastering Quilt Marking is the first book to cover the entire process in detail, including finding a design for the quilt top, choosing the right marking tools, obtaining stencils, marking the top, and matching borders and corners. Particularly interesting are chapters on making your own quilting stencils, preserving designs found on old quilts, and the process of quilting from the quilt-show judge's perspective. Cory also includes 12 new quilting designs. Recommended for all quilting collections.
