Back Cover Information

Follow Pam's Pointers for insider tips & tricks for using domestic, sit-down or standup/longarm machines for markless quilting.

  • Practice with a Purpose —Go from finger tracing and freehand sketching seven basic shapes —swirl, leaf, loop, curve, E & L heart, and feather —to free-motion quilting.
  • Workbook & sketchpad combines—Follow the arrows for continuous quilting and use registration lines and simple dots to fill any size block or border with minimal marking and maximum results.
  • Design with Lines™—Straight-line grid pads are pre-drawn in a variety of popular sizes. Eight star-like lines divide the 27 featured designs evenly for any size block you need. Make extra copies to practice or for developing your own freehand style of quilting.

Author  Pam ClarkeAbout the Author

A dynamo in the quilting world, Pam is the owner of the Log Cabin Dry Goods Quilt Shop and Home Stitches, a professional longarm quilting business. Her work can be seen in numerous publications and her clients include professional quilters, designers and fabric and pattern companies. To date, she has quilted over 7,000 quilts! In addition, she's made hundreds of her own quilts. Her favorite kind of quilting is to mix appliqué with simple, scrappy-look piecing, a style that has won her numerous ribbons.

Pam developed her "Designs with Lines" machine quilting technique to speed up marking tops. Using simple lines as guides, quilters can create their own individual designs. Her stencils, videos, and sketchbooks full of ideas to go along with her stencils are available from her Home Stitches Web site.

Pam grew up in Sacramento, California, and now lives in Spokane, Washington. A quilter since 1970, and a longarm machine quilter since 1988, she continues to teach machine quilting, piecing and appliqué classes locally and at venues and shows across the country. She has appeared on Quilt Central and with Linda Taylor on PBS television.
