    Hello and welcome from Ontario. Search for FMQ or Free Motion Quilting you will find lots of information about this technique.

    First of all welcome! This board is a tremendous resource to newbie and veteran quilters alike.

    In response to your question, there are many threads on here that could assist you, and also - as this website/board does have an "adoption" forum where if you'd like - you can put yourself up to be "virtually" adopted by someone who is more experienced than yourself - who will "take you under their wing" to assist you in your sewing/quilting education, in whatever basic or more complex skills that you require by interacting with you online. However - depending on the type of learner you are, you may be best suited to videos and/or a book. Whatever the choice - it is yours...

    Stitching in the ditch is great, but I realize it gets old and you wish to expand you creativity beyond those simplistic techniques... one of my favorite series of videos for students is by "Missouri Quilt Co" on Youtube, which is a free resource to you and they cover everything imaginable you might want to accomplish in terms of quilting. Youtube is also another great resource for free-motion quilting videos which covers stippling and other designs, and can do wonders in providing you some additional guidance and direction to be able to "fully quilt".

    I hope this helps you a little bit, and if you ever have any questions - feel free to ask any one of us or to PM me, I'm always glad to help another online friend when I can!

    Explosive blessings, abundance and inspiration to you all!
    - The Creative Seamstress

    There are some good quilt shops in the DC area. I know there is one just off Edsal Rd. There are a couple of other ones I have been to there, my daughter lives in Alexandria. Check the quilt shops, they should offer classes on FMQ.
