    Thanks so much for all you videos they are a help to me,because I’m just starting on my sewing and quilting.On home Schooling,I home schooled my Daughter Jessica from 8th grade to the 12th. Jessica Graduated early by one year. She is now married and has three young girls going to school,but thinking about taking them out of public school and home schooling them. Ok that’s enough about me. Again thanks for all you do. Keep up the good work and have a bless day. janet

    Thank you for this tutorial (and the others in the series). Very helpful. I’ve been wanting to give free motion quilting a try and now I feel ready to try. Love your encouragement at the end about allowing yourself to make mistakes and not getting caught up in “perfect” quilting.
