At last! Down-to-earth advice about enhancing large open areas with modern machine quilting. The 'modern' look in quilting is quilting! Lots of it, in large, unpieced areas of the quilt.

This book provides both the technical advice and the creative ideas offering seven striking quilts as practice projects. The projects and quilting designs in this book can easily be used with any quilting method. The simple-to-sew projects can even be hand pieced, if desired. Includes CD of full-size quilting designs.

The latest novel in the national bestselling Haunted Yarn Shop Mystery series Yarn shop owner Kath Rutledge is at a historic farm in Blue Plum, Tennessee, volunteering for the high school program Hands on History. But when a long-buried murder is uncovered on the property, Kath needs help from Geneva the ghost to solve a crime that time forgot.... Kath and her needlework group TGIF (Thank Goodness It’s Fiber) are preparing to teach a workshop at the Holston Homeplace Living History Farm, but their lesson in crazy quilts is no match for the crazy antics of the assistant director, Phillip Bell. Hamming it up with equal parts history and histrionics, Phillip leads an archaeological dig of the farm’s original dump site—until one student stops the show by uncovering some human bones. When a full skeleton is later excavated, Kath can’t help but wonder if it’s somehow connected to Geneva, the ghost who haunts her shop, and whom she met at this very site. After Phillip is found dead, it’s up to Kath to thread the clues together before someone else becomes history.
