Video: Free Motion Quilting - Flower

I've ventured from my beloved meandering free motion quilt pattern! My mom gave me Angela Walters' Free-Motion Quilting book a while back and I have been wanting to try her techniques on a quilt. I made a little video showing how I used her flower quilting pattern. Here's to trying something new! (Don't mind The Office playing in the background.)

You'll notice that I didn't worry about the tail end of the thread all over the place. Once I finished I just snipped it and pulled it out. I figured my petals wouldn't be as smooth if I stopped to cut it out. It's faster this way too. I also have a machine that will automatically sew when I push a certain button; pair that with moving the fabric around at a consistent speed and the result is really even stitch lengths!
