Hello All,

I'm new to this club and wanted to introduce myself.  I'm Deena from Clinton Township, Michigan.  My cousin's and aunts have been quilting for years. They got me started. They can whip out a quilt in a week. (One day I will be able)

I love to quilt and love learning new things!  I really want to learn more on Free Motion Quilting!  I currently just do the simple straight lines following the material patterns. Any advice will be so appreciated!

I'm so excited to be a part of this club, and hope to meet some new fellow quilters!!

Happy Quilting!!

Welcome, Deena

Free motion quilting is lots of fun.  There are a lot of resources for learning - videos, books, tutorials.  Most important is practice, practice and more practice

Hello Susan,

I've been quilting for a two years, but my skill level is not where I'd like it to be or my confidence.  I have made table runners and placements and several quilts but the patterns were simple and I machine quilted by going around the blocks.    I see some of these beautiful and intricate patterns and I want to make them.  I look forward to chatting as well!
