After an email exchange with a reader (Hi Anne!), I decided to tackle a series of posts on what I have learned about free motion quilting. I'm no expert, but I know there are a lot of people out there afraid to tackle their own quilting and I'm here to say: Don't be! I started free motion quilting on a little mechanical brother I bought at wal-mart for $75 when I first got married. The feed dogs wouldn't drop, so I had to tape a credit card (with a hole cut out for the needle) to hide my feed dogs. But it worked! I fell in love with free motion quilting and my husband upgraded my machine for my birthday to a Juki TL98Q. I'm willing to bet with a little practice and fearlessness, anyone can FMQ on MOST machines.
