    I first tried free motion quilting on the first quilt I made. It was supossed to be a runner for my vanity, but I liked it so much I ended up hanging it on the wall above my sewing machine. It was my first time trying it and therefore not my best, but I still like it very much.

    I have the machine, I have the quilt nearly finished, I just need the space and I’ll be off on my free motion quilting adventure. Have been watching videos, and am doing workshops next year, so there is a lot in my head and I just need to get it on to fabric now. I think I’ll do OK.

    I tried free motion on a small wall hanging, but haven’t been brave enough to try it on anything big yet. My practice runs haven’t turned out so well. :-(

    I’m pretty new to quilting and just love it. A new baby in the family called for a small quilt – an easy rectangular design made from 16 different fabrics. I free motion quilted each block compatibly with its fabric. Bark, paisley, cross-hatch, flowers, etc. Such fun!

    I HAVE done some, when I made my new granddaughter a baby quilt. FMQ is harder than I thought it would be. My consistency and smoothness were….well, they were off. But I am willing to learn and keep trying until one day I can admire my work and know it is good.

    I have been FMQ for quite some time, I enjoy it as long as the quilt is not too large. I’m still not very good at feathers but love making small quilts to try different designs. The more help the better I always think so the book would be great.

    I’ve tried FMQ with reasonable results – it’s a bit limiting when you want to do lovely sweeping curves on a domestic machine, but, I often just take a deep breath when things go wrong and let my hands take me on another journey, that quite often works.

    I’ve tried practicing sandwiches for FMQ. This would be a great addition to my sewing library!

    I have tried FWQ a few times now but with little success. I’ve ordered Angela’s first book & am waiting for it to arrive before I tackle this again. Thanks for the chance to win a copy of Angela’s second book.

    I’ve done all-over free motion quilting on a few quilts. But I know I have a whole lot to learn. Thanks for the chance to win.

    I want this book. I have the first book and LOVE it. So many great ways to quilt and the pictures/descriptions make it so easy to try and do. Kim

    I took a class with Pat Delaney thru my quilt guild 2 years ago and I have been practicing ever since. It is so wonderful to be able to quilt my own quilts.

    i want to so bad but need some help that this book could give thanks

    Oh i’ve tried it. Terrible at it lol. I’m actually afraid to try it on a big quilt. I will usually quilt a small project with just lines. My big quilts go to a LAQ.

  120. Posted November 13, 2012 at 4:27 pm | Permalink

    i practice. on layered pieces. i keep trying, but darn, i’m not getting the hang of it. one of these days, i’ll have a moment in time and it’ll all come to me … i’ll have magic fingers and move my piece under my needle and have fantastic fmq! ’til then, i practice. perhaps this book would give me a boost?! thanx for the chance to win a copy.

    I have tried free-motion quilting a few years ago. I am very excited to tackle this again. I just love her free motion quilting book and I KNOW the next one will be equally amazing !!

    Not sure how to answer this one…is it possible to do free motion quilting by hand? I hand quilt but use similar styles and techniques as with the long arm quilting machines.

    I’ve been trying FMQ a little bit here and there on small projects using my domestic sewing machine. Love the freedom and creativity! I’m currently working on a wholecloth quilt, and it’s all about the quilting. Love it. So much fun.

  125. Posted November 13, 2012 at 3:34 pm | Permalink

    I have done a little bit of free motion quilting. Nothing very detailed.

  126. Posted November 13, 2012 at 3:21 pm | Permalink

    Well, I have tried free motion on my really old machine and it didn’t go so well. I just got a fantastic new machine and can’t wait to give it another try :)

  127. Posted November 13, 2012 at 3:14 pm | Permalink

    I have tried it, but wasn’t all that happy with the results. Wish I had a long arm machine!

    Hi – yes, I have tried free motion quilting – but – with my Bernina BSR foot. I could not
    get it with my other machines. I am very, very new at it. Thanks for the chance.

    I’ve tried it but want to expand and mix it up more. thanks for the give away

    HI! YES, I’M WORKING AT IT! FOR ME IT IS A VERY SLOW PROCESS-LOTS OF PRACTICING! I CAN DO HEARTS+HEART-SHAPED LEAVES ON VINES-THAT’S A START!
    THIS WEEK WORKING ON LOOPS+SWIRLS. THANKS SO FOR SHARING!

    I’m actively trying to learn FMQ and am a participant in SewCalGal’s Free Motion Quilting Challenge this year. Angela was one of our monthly tutorial experts earlier this year, and I purchased a copy of her first book then and refer to it often! This new book will make a great companion as I progress as a free motion quilter.

    I started in January of this year with FMQ. From mostly the Internet. I have taken your class on Craftsy, which has helped so much. Thanks for this giveaway.

    I have tried it, but did not have the proper tools need to do it right. I will get another chance as I am almost finished with a toddler quilt for my grandson.

    I finally took the plunge about two years ago. I thought my machine was my problem so when I borrowed a friend’s new high level machine for a couple of weeks I quilted every day and lo and behold when I had to give her machine back I found I could do just fine on my 50 year old elna.

    I have tried free motion quilting and find the straight lines with sharp turns are most successful for me. Need to get my confidence up and keep practicing curves and this book would be a great inspiration for me. Thank you for the opportunity.

    I’ve practiced a bit, but not on a project yet! Hopefully I can as soon as I finish making my Christmas presents!

    I’ve been perfecting my FMQ this year (not that it will ever be perfect). I even took Angela’s class when she visited Massachusetts and the Boston MQG this year.

    I have tried free motion quilting. It’s one of those things I dread until I get started, then I wonder why I was dreading it in the first place. Can’t seem to get past a basic meander design though. I would love to learn more from Angela’s book.
