- This blog post by Bonjour Quilts has a comprehensive easy straight line quilting library and explanation of how to go about it easily and quickly. https://www.bonjourquilts.com/straight-line-quilting-designs/?fbclid=IwAR0_x91qERniqbeVszMrLiPVVv84zIEPkSVaZLHd-HaiSOcYbsUf0uZmB_Q
- Melissa Marginet has been an online workshop teacher to our Guild in the past, and we have her 2 quilting books (Edge-to-Edge Walking Foot Quilting Designs and Walking Foot Quilting Designs) in the Guild Library to sign out. http://melissamarginet.ca/
- Leah Day is known for her precise and varied machine quilting with YouTube videos to support them. This blog post discusses sewing curvy edge to edge quilting. She uses a ruler, but you can do similar with a walking or regular foot directing the fabric from left to right. No echo quilting here, and you are allowed to cross over the lines to make long continuous hourglass shapes. https://leahday.com/blogs/machinequilting/how-to-machine-quilt-crazy-curves
