This was my third time attempting machine quilting with my embroidery module. This time went very well. I have my Weightless Quilter frame set up, supporting the weight of the quilt to prevent drag. I'm using a magnetic hoop, making re-hooping fast. But the best tip I can share, if you're interested in this, is the batting.
I tried out Birdie Bird batting. This is a game changer! The batting is advertised as needing no pins or basting spray to baste the layers together. The batting is supposed to simply cling to the quilt top and backing. I was skeptical. But it worked beautifully! I was amazed at how well it worked. I will admit that I did put a few safety pins around the outside edges...because of my skepticism. But I really didn't have to. The quilt has NO puckers or tucks on the backside. I LOVE THIS BATTING!
I'll show the final results soon.

I was only planning to cut this quilt out this summer, ready for Fall sewing. Well, I got carried away. Top is complete. It's will be a lap size quilt.
For some reason, I want to use up the rest of the fabric and get it out! I bought it as a large fat quarter pack, so I hate to put the scraps back in my stash separated by color. So I cut the remaining fabric into little rectangles.
