From Chapter One:
Sue Nickels gives detailed instruction on how to design a feather, the importance of the spine, using tracing paper, and if your stumped on what kind of spine. to do, she has a nifty trick you need to check out.
Cathy Franks gives us a very entertaining and informative segment, from taping a see through film on your quilt top to see and practice designs, to using special tools that allow you to get up to 7-9 designs out of just one tool.
From Chapter Three:
Cindy Needham showcases her Ultimate Stencil, which allows you to do circular designs or square designs fairly easily. Then, Nancy Arseneault shows how she takes a picture of a full quilt top, then takes a picture of the a smaller section of the top and turns it black and white (to drop out distracting color) so you can see where to put your quilt design.
To wrap things up, Alex shares how to draft a cable quilt design, which works for just about any size area you need on your quilt.
