Welcome to the Skill Builder BOM Free Motion Quilting Lesson #2. This month my main focus will be to teach you the designs that will be used for the Mood and Em Dash Blocks. I will not be covering any FMQ Basics. Please refer to the FMQ Lesson #1 which covered all the basics to FMQ in a 7 part video series.

The Video Lesson

If you are having trouble viewing the videos please try viewing them directly on my YouTube channel or email me. The lighting in the drawing video is not fantastic, unfortunately I had to do this at 11:00 at night so the kids wouldn't bug me :)
