Back Cover Information

Machine Quilting in Sections is so easy!

  • You can machine quilt in sections on your own sewing machine!
  • No extra equipment to buy!
  • No additional space required!
  • You can finish more quilts without the expense, or delay, of sending them out.
  • Just divide your quilts into smaller sections - easy to manage and easy to assemble.

The latest in Low-Carb Quilting - It's all about reducing bulk!

  • Six ways to assemble quilted sections
  • Three ways to add borders to quilted centers
  • A dozen examples of common quilt styles suitable for Low-Carb quilting: medallion, diagonal set, strippy, et cetera
  • Four step-by-step patterns featuring Low-Carb quilting techniques, including Not Such Hard Times, shown here.

For variety, try Low-Fat Quilting - divide the batting, not the quilt!
