I don't know about you but I sure wish I had a long arm quilting machine. Unfortunately, I don't see that in my foreseeable future. So instead of having a long arm, I use my Janome sewing machine for quilting. I am far from the expert of many quilters, but I knew that I had to get started. But where to begin.
These two books are I what I bought and have skimmed, read and perused.
What if you don't have these books. What do you do?
The link below will show you how to do free motion quilting.
Don't be intimidated in quilting your on quilt. Start small and work your way on
improving your quilting with just your sewing machine.
