I seemed to cause quite a ruckus by my little tutorial/tips below with the MISTI as I had lots of emails about the quilting template. I made a little video (I am NOT a good video person so bear with me) to help explain!
Here is the link to Lydia's tutorial on this which is MUCH better than mine!
I hope this helps explain it a bit better! and I will work on my video skills! LOL!
