If you have met Hope Yoder in person, then you know she loves gadgets. In her quest to master hand-eye coordination with free-motion quilting, she uses her iPad, Apple Pencil, and the internet to hone her quilting skills.

Check out this quick video on how she spends her spare time on planes, trains, and automobiles. Okay, not trains and automobiles, but definitely while sitting waiting for doctor appointments, in the evening in front of the TV, and on planes.

Great idea for creating muscle memory.

This is a great way to practice. I've been using Sketchbook Pro Android version on my Samsung tablet. I just taught a Free Motion quilting class and was telling the students about it. I'm sending them all a link to your awesome video. Drawing apps are also great if you like designing your own quilts. Thanks Hope!

I just saw a video where they simulated a real long arm by rubber banding a cross piece to the pencil so that you could use both hands and it was more like the real thing . This might even make your muscle memory better
