Free-Motion Mastery in a Month draws on my 25 years experience as a piano teacher to bring you the simplest, most effective system ever for learning or improving free-motion quilting skills. The FMM30 system combines three teaching elements: Tracing, Sketching and Quilting.

Tracing is done with the Master Trainer and Doodle Sheets -- away from the sewing machine. By following the shapes on the Doodle Sheets you embed the muscle memory and eye-hand coordination you need for quilting -- before you sew. When it comes time to quilt, the Master Trainer can also be used for ruler work at the sewing machine.

Sketching puts your mind in the driver seat -- learning to guide your hands to create the shapes you are going to quilt. It also helps you learn the structure of quilting patterns and plan how to place them in your quilt.

Quilting is done one block at a time, so there is no bulk to manage, no special sewing machine set up needed, and no risk of ruining a precious quilt top. Join the pre-quilted blocks and your quilt is finished including the quilting!

The FMM30 Tool Kits contain all the tools you need for the FMM30 system, ready to go anywhere in their own tote bag. They make it convenient to get started and easy to learn on the go. Above the drop-down menu box there is a "Click here to see Tool Kits" button that will take you to photos of each kit.

Order the Standard size Master Trainer if you are quilting on a domestic sewing machine or a sit-down longarm. Order the Longarm size Master Trainer if you are quilting on a frame-mounted longarm.

NOTE: Tool kits do not contain the book.
