In this episode of Let's Machine Quilt! Part 1 Stitch Book & Tie Tacking, quilting expert Sherry Duncan will help you get to know your machine better so that you will feel comfortable machine quilting at home.

She begins by exhibiting a sample book, what she calls a machine-quilting stitch book. She made it as inspiration and as a reference of the variety of machine stitches available for consideration. She will demonstrate the steps you can take to make your own sample book.
