Flower Swirl Quilting Tutorial

So - here's my video - don't laugh at me. I am not the best on a camera, but I hope you get a chance to try out my flower swirl quilting pattern. It's really fun. And - I don't have a studio yet, so just don't pay attention to the background!

You make it look so easy! One day, I want to be just 1/10th as talented as you! Love the little baby bulge - how are you feeling?

Judi, how fun to see you in action! I didn't breathe right just watching you run that machine, so I'm sure if I ever get the chance at working a long arm I will surely pass out after about a minute and a half! If I didn't faint, I know I would stitch myself into a place I couldn't get out of! You really do make it look easy, but it must have taken lots of practice to get this good. Thanks for sharing your beautiful work!

You do handle that machine with such ease. I learned to do swirls on my machine from watching you do them and now I have something to add...no longarm..one day...thanks, it was great!

It looks so fun! I've always wondered - do you have the pattern in your head or is it in the quilting machine?

Nice Video. It was especially good toward the end where you zoomed in tight and we could get a detailed view of your quilting design as you stitched it out.
Thanks so much for the tutorial.
I am a regular on your blog and your quilting is very happy and cheerful.

Thanks so much for sharing. I am quilting on a long arm and am always in need of tips and tricks. The only thing I really know how to do is stipple. I need to venture into other techniques. Thanks again!

Thank you so much for the tutorial. It's a beautiful design and I love seeing you putting it into action ... I too have the "stippling" down and need to be braver about different designs. You make this seem possible. Thanks!
