    I learned by taking a class with Irena Bluhm. She has laminated books that you trace over using a dry erase marker. There are arrows showing how to move your marker. You practice the shapes and then try it on paper before you begin to quilt. You learn to do freeform feathers from the start. See http://www.irenabluhmcreations.com. I'm not affiliated with her company.

Also looking for the book she held up, but have to watch it over to get the title. Anyone remember it?
    Wow! I just looked up using Glad Press & Seal for tracing the pattern. Unbelievable!! The pounce pads are available online at JoAnns.

    Kamaia, I sent you a PM, you need to get yourself the Quik Trainer from Gloria, you will be amazed by the second or third practise you will be as good as they come. Contact: gloria@laliladesign.com she is just working on a patent
    for this and I promise you will be amazed. She will send you 12 designs to learn. You don't have to use your sewing machine, no quilting gloves, no paper - all you will need is a table and chair.....and start practicing, once you receive
    the practise sheets, package from her. I'm certain you can get other patterns from her as well. Nice lady to deal with.
    Quilting People are the Best, Have a great sewing day!

    Leah Day does a wonderful job teaching FMQ on Crafty. Wait until they have a bargain and sign up. it is well worth the money. I particularly like her relaxed approach to FMQ. It has really helped me a lot. Betty Boop

    You don't have to go to Craftsy! Go to her website and she has tutorials there.
