Everybody has their own way of doing free motion quilting. I like using my quilting gloves. I won a set of these pads to also quilt with.
I found it is easier to use the gloves and one of the pads, I use the pad on the hand that is moving the quilt, so the hand using it depends on the direction I'm moving the quilt, whether it is to the right or to the left.
If you notice in the pictures sometimes the pad is closer to the needle and sometimes farther away.
My husband likes to take a lot of pictures and there were a whole lot more then I shared!
I saw on someone else's blog that she cut the tips off of the gloves, so I tried it. I really like having the flexibility of being able to grab thread, etc. without pulling off the gloves each time.
Here is the pad I use. They are called grip and stitch, you can find out more about them here:
I use the smaller one.
For those of you who are not familier with quilting gloves, they have little nubs on the bottom to grip the quilt.
I am just doing simple circles, they are not very consistent.
