The 502 New Quilting Motifs is a follow up book to the 501 Quilting Motifs book. Complied by the editors of the Quilt Maker Magazine, it is full of design ideas for hand and machine quilting. Each design is shown actual size, though there are many ways you could enlarge or reduce them. On the same page they also give examples of ways you can arrange the simple design to create borders, corners, or blocks. While the first two pages does give some directions and suggestions for how to use the designs, the vast majority of the book is dedicated to the designs themselves.
