Favorite Long-Arm Quilting Videos on YouTube

Hello Everyone,

It is hard to find a good long-arm quilting instructor, and once one does, the cost of their classes are often astronomical.  A lot of the tips and tricks I use in completing quilts for both myself and customers, I have leard free--from YouTube.  Periodically, I will post some of my favorite links so that others may learn in an affordable fashion too!  Also, feel free to visit my other blog to see how my latest project has turned out: http://shannonsquiltingservices.blogspot.com

 

(1)-  Feather Circle Quilt Video.wmv

This is an instructional video at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GdBgXEhjAMY

(2) LongArmClass: Dancing Feathers Super FAST

Mostly entertaining, but can show some good ideas--it is acutally a promotion to take their class.

(3) Continuous Curve Quilting by Off the Edge (channel)

Using circular rulers, anyone can create perfect continuous curve arcs.  Love it!

(4) Baptist Fan Quilting by Off the Edge (channel)

I really like this technique.  Most people use a "groovy board" or some form of board template that they can attach to their machine (these are very costly) which require the quilter to work from behind the machine.  I'm cheap, I don't want to buy those expensive boards and I only like to work from the front of my machine because it greatly reduces thread breakage.  This baptist fan techniqe is awesome!   You work from the front of the machine, and depending on which ruler size you use, you can adjust the size of those circle fans--impossible to accomplish with the board-template system.  This is a must-try for every accomplished long-arm or mid-arm quilter.

Thanks for the links, Shannon.  I'm not a long armer myself, but I do find the tutes interesting and they give me insight into how hard the LA-ers work to make a quilt look so beautiful.
