New Machine Quilting video -- grab some popcorn

I spend a lot (too much?) time on Facebook and reading blogs and you know how sometimes people are all saying the same thing?  Lately, I've been reading a lot of "I like that people show me how to quilt on video, but they only quilt on little squares and not big quilts" type comments.

So, I basted up a quilt and moved my video camera away from my table for a wide shot of how I flip and fold and move a quilt while quilting.  I don't give any instruction in this video, nor do you see the pattern that I am quilting.  If you are curious, I am doing some continuous curve with an oval template and then some free-motion ribbon candy designs.

You do, however, see my Cheezit fabric finally used in a quilt.  I bought it a few years ago because Cheezits are my absolute favorites!  I didn't know what I was going to do with it, but it is 60% of the back of this quilt and I am so in love with it!

If you wanted to see how a large quilt is manipulated under a machine, I hope this helps.  If you have no interest in that, I hope you enjoyed the Cheezit fabric!

Great video! Love the Cheezit fabric. You are so at ease. I'm going to try the pillow on the lap and the shelf liner instead of gloves. Thanks for more great tips.

Thank you. I also use shelf liner but I have trouble with the shank hitting my ruler if I allow it to be on the left of my needle ?

What is the clanking noise? Does the Sweet 16 make it, or is it the foot against the template, or ???
