    Thanks all for sharing all links and sites....they were good and very useful. Also before I forget....what marking tools are advised to be used when using stencils on my quilt tops?

    Does anyone have an idea for FMQ on stars. I need a fairly densely quilted pattern because of the style of quilt it is. It is for a patriotic row quilt and some of the rows required density so I believe that I need to continue it throughout the quilt so it doesn't pucker. Thanks for any help you can give me. There are several different sizes of various stars.

    Another member recently posted this handy link. The patterns are classical and attractive and they're free.

    Hi Aggi. have you looked at Leah Day's blog yet? She is posting hundreds of FMQ designs with videos to show you how to do them. I like her site because you don't have to mark your quilt, just practice a design a bit and then go for it. She has lots of great ideas about FMQ besides the designs. Hope you give her a try! I'm really not related to her or anything, just love her information http://freemotionquilting.blogspot.c...tart-here.html

    Help! I found the stencils as well and they are beautiful, but now I have another problem. I set my quilting machine to all the settings my manual tells me and what other ladies have told me to do. Check tensions, threads, bobbin winding, change to new needle, but when I try to do free motion quilting with my darning foot, I can't slide the fabric without fighting it and my machine ends up across the table from me, with me pushing so hard. I have come along ways but it has been strictly machine quilting, not free hand. Help?

    You could try a white pencil, but you could also draw the stencil onto regular paper, enough times to cover whatever area you intend to FMQ. If you will be using an allowed pattern on the top, fill the entire page if you like. Get a stack of very thin paper. Go to the sewing machine and, using an unthreaded large topstitch needle, with a small stitch, sew through all the layers. The holes will function as a pattern for you.

    I just sew right through it. That's what cheap paper is better than expensive paper. It rips better. Tissue paper rips best of all.

    I am not sure which stencils you are referring to but if you go back through the messages there are some really great suggestions.
