In The Background Book

In The Background

A machine quilting IDEA BOOK :  Ideas for quilting the background areas in your quilts!


Jodi Robinson/JR Designs

 Quilts Designed in EQ by: Mary Zeitz

Self Published – 43 Spiral Bound pages


This book is NOT intended to teach you HOW to quilt background designs.  This book IS an “Idea Book”, which contains creative ideas for dividing the background areas within a quilt, to create interest, and secondary designs.

I chose ten quilts for this book, that I feel are fairly common quilts that you may machine quilt.  For each of the ten quilts, I have shown three different “Ideas” for how you might divide up, and quilt, the background areas within them (30 quilts total in the book).  For each quilt, the three idea pages included go up in the level of intensity in the quilting (from simple to more complex).  For each quilt, I have also included a “blank” quilt that you can copy to try out design ideas.

The ten quilts included in the book are:

Single Irish Chain, Four Patch, Double Wedding Ring, Dresden Plate, Square in a Square, Pinwheel, Mariner’s Compass, Applique, Log Cabin, Ohio Star

Pricing:  $20.00 + 4.50 shipping (USPS 1st Class)  US orders only.  ** International orders please email me ( for shipping charge.
