    This first video goes over how to practice your freemotion quilting using an unthreaded machine !

    Asking a seamstress to mend is like asking Picasso to paint your garage.

    I am so glad you made this video. You touched on so many elements of the quilting process that others seem to ignore - like listening to your machine. I also hate wearing gloves, but have adapted by cutting off the fingers and most of the cuff part. You're a natural! I'm looking forward to watching to the rest of the videos!

    Thanks for another good video! I totally agree with you on the "moving the pen" vs. "moving the paper". I thought I must be crazy to be the only one I know that can't agree with practicing with pen and paper. I think that is a great technique though if a person was using a longarm.

    I just recently took my midarm machine OFF my frame as I was finding the frame very restrictive due to the small working area ( My machine only has a 10 inch throat ). And even on the frame, the movement of your hands is nothing like a pen on paper, since you are using your arms to move the machine, not your hand, I could not even get the theory of practicing on paper for that !

    OMG--I have watched several tuts on FMQ and your series is by far the best!!! I'm a brand new newby at FMQ (have been tying my quilts/sewing in the ditch on borders) and scared is an understatement--I didn't know you were allowed to trace the pattern onto the quilt!! For a beginner, I think this is the way to go--you can practice all you want, but it is nerve wracking to do all the things right AND get the pattern to look half way decent!!

    I couldn't finish watching the video with all the bobbing around of the camera which made me feel dizzy.

    I apologize for the shakieness / bobbing. These are the first videos I have done and I am still trying to get the hang of it. I do promise to get better, or at least find a way to stop the shaking !

    Thank you for your patience in doing these videos. Really a ton of good points that you are bringing to us. I am doing my second quilt (only) with FMQ on my DSM and I still have a lot to learn. Thank you. Very helpful videos
