    Yes. I mostly love doing free motion quilting,but I get a little frustrated when my leaves or feathers ect. don’t come out as I envisioned .

  2. gayle hill says:

    I am just staring to learn free motion quilting. I think this is going to be quite a challenge,

  3. I have never made one, but would love to. Sherrie

  4. Mindyzw says:

    I have always wanted to try free-motion quilting…but…time has not permitted it.

  5. Patrick Meyeres says:

    I love to free motion, however coming up with designs to use is where I just go blank. I would love to learn more if I just had some designs to draw inspiration from and tips to make it look great!

  6. June Codding says:

    I prefer free motion quilting, it can be perfect for any quilt since you are free to follow the design or make up your own flattering style. I am 81 yrs old and have been quilting for years., since my grandchildren grew up. They enjoy receiving quilts now instead of clothing.

  7. Peg says:

    I find it very challenging. I am a beginner and find I do better following a chalk line … Which defeats the “free motion”. I think lots of practice is key and smaller quilts. I am going to “practice” next on a t-shirt quilt I will be making for my son.

  8. Pam S says:

    I do a lot of free motion quilting, and I love doing it on small pieces because I have control over it. I sometimes get frustrated when trying to do a whole quilt because I can’t maintain the design consistency from section to section. Thanks for the chance to win!

  9. Mary Mac says:

    Yes, I like to do free motion quilting. It allows you to make up as you go and if you do make a mistake nobody will notice. LOL.

  10. Carol Cihla says:

    I would love to free motion quilt. The designs are pretty and really make a quilt something special.

  11. Marianne Myrick says:

    I attempted to do it a few years ago, but the results were not very good – it does take practice. Now that I have more time, I will try again. I already have a project in mind.

  12. venita abel says:

    I have not done a lot of FMQ on large items, but I do quilt my smaller projects. Large projects bothers my back & neck. Thank you.

  13. Kim Miller says:

    I have done a little free motion quilting and I do like it , it does hide mistakes and looks pretty.

  14. Lee Wimmert says:

    I am a perfectionist so I am struggling with free motion quilting. I will continue to work at it to become more comfortable and relaxed while doing it!

  15. Marian says:

    I loved the BSR once I got the hang of it. The free motion quilting came very easily, even though I have been a hand quilter all of my life. The only thing I did not like is the bulk of machine quilting a quilt on a home machine. I made the mistake of starting with a king size quilt. However, I got a lot of practice in on that quilt, and was very comfortable with free motion quilting by the time I finished.

  16. Charlotte Trabue says:

    Have never done free motion quilting. Would love to learn to do it. I have been reading up on it. Just need to try it. Hope to win the book.

  17. Carol Adams says:

    LOVE free motion quilting. It takes me a while to figure out what I am going to do on each quilt but always turns out wonderful.

  18. Stacey Slayton says:

    I am getting ready to quilt my daughter a tshirt quilt from her high school shirts. We shall see how it turns out quilting this way. This will be my first attempt. Just getting it to the quilting stage was fun.

  19. Janice Masson says:

    I am beginning to use FMQ in my projects. I am still rather new to this technique but my skills are improving. Practice, practice, practice.

  20. Kathy Launius says:

    I have only done a little free motion. It is a challenge for me. I need much more practice

  21. Deb E says:

    Just getting my first long arm machine @ end of the month. Can use all the tips & tricks available.

  22. Mildred Howard says:

    I have never tried free motion quilting but I want to learn how to do it. I am fairly new to quilting and machine embroidery. Lots to learn.

  23. Grace Burke says:

    Free motion quilting is like working backwards, fits me just right but I still nmeed more practices !

  24. Dana says:

    I’ve never tried free motion quilting. It intimidates me. I love the look of it and really want to try and learn it. It adds so much to quilts that it’s something I’m going to have to learn sooner or later!

  25. Lizell says:

    I just love free motion quilting. Still a beginner so I need a lot more of practice!!!!

  26. Sheryl Sandros says:

    I did my first free motion quilting just last month. I LOVED doing it once I got rolling, but was frustrated in trying to find good instructions. I could not find anything but tension instructions and different patterns. I was looking for basic instructions such as; where to start, what direction to move, how to choose your pattern, etc. It looks like this book might be just what I was looking for.

  27. Donna N. says:

    I have made several quilts using free motion. I find doing it inside smaller blocks is easier. I definitely don’t feel accomplished at it.

  28. Marianne Myrick says:

    My first attempt a couple of years ago wasn’t very good. I have more time available for all things crafting and want to tackle free motion again.

  29. Orvalee says:

    I have only done 1 quilt with free motion quilting but am planning on doing my next quilt this way as well. It’s addictive.

  30. tzfardaha says:

    I have done free motion quilting but I found it very hard on my hands. That’s why I love machine embroidery. I would love a copy of this book as reference to digitize my own designs.

  31. Ardella says:

    I have free motion quilted only small projects. I need assistance with consistency and amount of free motion quilting.

  32. sharon says:

    I love to learn how to do freehand better than In do now

  33. sharon says:

    love to freehand better then I
    do now

  34. Karen S says:

  35. Ruthann Schmidt says:

    I like to experiment with different free motions.

    I’ve never tried free motion quilting but really want to learn. I love to learn new things!

  43. Natascha Rutherford says:

    I started to do it ….like learning to walk and its so addictive like a drug. I cannot stop doing it. I keep practicing every chance I get its so therapeutic with music ….. I just love it …… One Day…..I’ll be better….its working your brain with the machine,plus the pattern,plus the movement, plus…..

  44. June 3Feathers says:

    I’ve never used one but I am interested in learning. Have been looking at them and I am thinking about taking a class at our local sewing store. I can’t wait.
