Free Motion Quilting Tutorial

Hello! Thank you so much to all of you who have filled out my survey so far. This is so much fun! I think I will do a survey every year. And thank you so much for all the nice and kind comments you have left me.

If you haven’t yet done my reader/follower survey you can read more in this post and find the survey here.

One of the top things to come out of the survey so far is that many of you would like to see more tutorials on my blog and that you would like help with free motion quilting. So with that in mind I have made a free motion quilting video tutorial for you today. In the video I show stippling, pebbles and a feather. I call the feather a ribbon but it’s a feather. 🙂 Ahhh, the stress of quilting on camera! 😉

I hope this is helpful to you! Thank you for your feedback.

I am linking my “finished tutorial” to Crazy Mom Quilts’ “Finish it Up Friday.”


  1. Thank you so much, I enjoyed your tutorial. You have made stitching feathers look easy, so I must have a try.
    Thanks again, Jenny from New Zealand

  2. Anita, your fabulous! Thank you for sharing your FMQ tips and tricks. It looks so easy and I just need to practice. Love the feather (ribbon) for borders too. Pebbling for me is going to take a lot of practice and I so appreciate your video and encouragement and your ENTHUSIASM!


  3. Hi Jenny!
    That's wonderful! I'm so happy I could help and that you want to give it a try! It can become quite relaxing once you get into a flow with it. 🙂

  4. You make it look so easy! Feathers are something I've wanted to learn, your technique is one I haven't seen before! Thank you for sharing!!

  5. Hi Jayne!
    You're Welcome! 🙂 I just decided to try to create the feathers that way and it resulted in a look I was happy with so I kept doing it. Glad I could put a new idea out there.
