    I have a Bernina 150QE but I don't know if that really matters.
    I want to learn FMQ and have everything but the nerve!!!
    Thanks for any help. I've been watching tutorials but would like a book also.

    I learned lots from Harriat Hargraves book.She covers the details of thread,needles,tension,ect.very clearly.Also I like Mary Mashuta's book,even though it is not FM,but straight line quilting.I think the two styles work well together on one quilt.Don't be afraid of starting,it's about practicing and practicing!

    Most definitely Harriet Hargraves book "Heirloom Machine Quilting". Tons and tons of tips and why you should and should not do certain things. I also love Diane Gaudynski's book Guide to machine quilting.

    I've bought all the machine quilting titles I can find - books are another of my obsessions. ;)

    The best book I've read on the subject is Machine Quilting Solutions by Christine Maraccini:
    http://www.amazon.com/Machine-Quilti...228513&sr=8-11 This book helped me get beyond plain all-over meandering. It teaches you how to break the quilt down into different zones for designs and it shows each quilt with three different quilting plans from simple to complex, including trapunto.

    My second favorite is Guide to Machine Quilting by Diane Gaudynski:
    http://www.amazon.com/Guide-Machine-...3228513&sr=8-7

    And because I love feathers so much, I also liked Hooked on Feathers by Sally Terry: http://www.amazon.com/Hooked-Feather...3228637&sr=1-1

    Harriet Hargrave's book is a great place to start! That's how I taught myself.
