I found the drawing the pattern helpful but most of us dont have the type of machine and I realize there a lots of videos using a regular machine, but I am always up for learning a new technique

Pamela Crader

As a new quilter, I found this very helpful! Thank you.

This is a very nice video, especially the instructions for drawing on paper. Unfortunately creating the pattern on fabric is impossible to watch — it is one big dark area with only an occasional hint of the machine foot. The thread just does not show up on the black/ very dark fabric. It would probably have been better to use white cloth with black thread so that one could actually watch and see the quilting.

The actual video was black & I could not see any of it.

The video at the sewing part s too dark to see. I did enjoy the drawing on paper

Cynthia Brammer

The video was very good. The red tread on black made the stiching very easy to see. As a Longarm quiter it is always helpful to see new technique.

Karen White

The drawing on the paper was excellent. However the fabric was too dark to be able to see the designs she was trying to show. Since we don’t all have long arm machines, is this also possible on regular sewing machines?
