    I would like to watch free motion quilting using rulers

    This type of post would be very helpful, and I am sure many of us would appreciate good examples (and hopefully instructions) for various free motion quilting patters.

    Not useful at all. Expected to find help with the actual machine quilting process.

    I’d have to see the stitching as well as the fabric. How would you quilt the Boteh if the design were appliqué.

    I don't understand the point of this post. It shows swatches of fabrics, and this is supposed to be inspirational for FMQ?

    Really? This gives me no inspiration for quilting designs at all, but it did inspire me to use certain fabrics.
