Free Motion Quilting Design Inspiration

Whether you are a "pro" or beginner at free motion quilting on your home sewing machine, or perhaps you are a long arm quilter.  In any case you should check out the Free Motion Quilting Project, which was created by a very talented and creative lady named Leah Day.  If you go to her site, she offers video tutorials on the basics of free motion quilting, as well as hundreds of video tutorials of different designs.  Go to her site, and click on  "Find a Design", and it will take you to another page where you can choose quilting designs by category, such as Skill Level, Fillers, Directional Texture, etc.  Also take some time to check out the rest of this generous ladies website!
Another inspiring site is Patsy Thompson Designs, where you will also find a lot of information on home machine quilting basics, as well as a lot of downloadable quilting patterns, just click on "Education".  Check out her gallery as well, and visit the rest of her site.  It is so wonderful that these ladies are willing to share so much information for free to whomever is interested in learning more.  I think you will enjoy visiting these two sites, and will come away inspired to try some new designs for your machine quilting.
