free motion quilting

A few of you asked how I quilted my last quilt. I did it on my own machine, but it's with a different foot than normal. I prefer the look and feel of hand quilting but it just takes way too long. And so a few years ago I taught myself how to machine quilt. The first quilt looked horrible, but with each quilt I'm getting better.

Here is a video - so you can see what I'm talking about. (from crazy mom quilts)
