How I quilt....

I had my cousin ask for some quilting advice from me. Feels weird to have people ask me because I don't consider myself an expert at all!! So I drew out how I quilt my quilts after I basted them. I have been doing this a lot lately since my Long Arm Sewing Machine is broken.
Here is the overall way I quilt...

There here is a more detailed look how I do each section. I thought I would share with everyone in case people were curious. 
I taught myself how to quilt by reading blogs and doing searching on youtube and whatnot. 
A really good place to start if you want a good video is crazymomquilts by Amanda Jean. She is awesome and taught me so much!
