    I want to learn just have gotten up the courage to try. It is very intimidating to me. I don't want to ruin a quilt if I can't do it correctly.

    I have enjoyed watching Leah Day's video tutorials online. She is a very fluent free motion quilter. Check out her link.

    Thanks for the links. I am trying to master my BSR but it's mastering me instead. I know I'll love it once I get the hang of it but wowsters, I can control my little hand quilting needle much better!

    I am still learning. I tend to stress out while I'm machine quilting. The first 2 quilts I did on the machine kept puckering and folding on the back. Ugh, it made me nuts. Now, I stop every few stitches and feel the back to make sure. I like the control of hand quilting, but I like the stippling effect of machine quilting.
