Free motion quilting at home

I just completed a quilt (I hope to share it with you tomorrow) in which I did the free motion quilting at home, on my own sewing machine. If you have been a regular reader of my blog, you know that I have typically rented time on a long arm quilting machine; the picture above is of a quilt I completed in this fashion. But I was really interested to see if I could do it at home, as I had seen it done by a couple of quilters online.

Here are the resources that I used:
