Marti Michell Video iconVisit our Videos page for 2 short movies on machine quilting in Sections! Scroll down for quilt photos and more info.

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.

  • 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. Scroll down for images.
  • Four step-by-step patterns featuring Low-Carb quilting techniques, including Not Such Hard Times, shown on the cover and below.

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

Marti talks about the book with Jodie Davis at the 2009 Quilt Market video on QNN TV. We want to thank "Quilting Examiner" Kelly Smith for a great book review!
