Free Motion Panel Project

Learn free motion quilting tips & hone your quilting skills by quilting a 24" x 44" panel. 

Free motion quilting is a combination of controlling the speed of your machine needle and the speed of the fabric movement.  You control the speed of the needle with the foot control, and you control the speed of the fabric with your hands.  Free motion quilting takes practice, practice, practice!
