Improving my machine quilting skills!

Another finished quilt top: Summer in the Garden, kit from The Country Schoolhouse.
The fabric is from the line "Natural Garden" by Holly Taylor.

I will use this top to try to improve my machine quilting skills. I have purchased two books based on a recommandation from Quiltoholic to help me:
Easy Machine Quilting: 12 Step-By-Step Lessons from the Pros Plus a Dozen Projects to Machine Quilt (Rodale Quilt Book) Machine Quilting Made Easy

By the way, I have problems getting pictures adjusted and put together in a good way for my blog. I use Paint. What programs do you recommend?

Hei! Hyggelig med folk fra Kongsberg, kommer opprinnelig fra Sandsvær utenfor Kongsberg. Koslig blogg du har. Jeg vet ikke så mye om bildeprogrammer, men jeg bruker gratis versjonen av Picasa3. Er igrunne fornøyd med det, men jeg kunne hatt et bedre kamera. Som blogger innen hobby trenger jeg stadig nærbilder, føler at de blir uskarpe... det er nok kameraet og ikke Picasa..
Ønsker deg en god helg :0)
