Since someone else will prolly want the info too, here are the links that I have found enjoyable:

Techniques for machine quilting
Here are some hints I liked from another board:
Regarding the baby powder in the sock hint to pounce a quilting pattern. The powder can be "fixed" by a light spray of hair spray so it won't disappear before you're done with the pattern. Hair spray is also great for getting out ink before you wash.
In response to what is a good quilt marker on dark fabrics. I have found that the soapstone marker is excellent.It has a holder, that you can remove and sharpen the soapstone like a pencil and get a really nice point for thin lines. The markings stay on for a long time, much better than chalk. It is a natural product and rubs off with a piece of cloth. Refills are also available,check out your local quilt shop.
To trace complicated designs onto dark fabric or onto quilts that have already been basted (you, know, where a light table won't work, and you are not using a commercial stencil, or don't want to cut one), trace your design onto freezer paper. With a tapestry needle, punch holes along the lines at intervals, say 1/8-1/4", whatever appears to be a resonable distance for dots. Place your finished "pattern" where you want the transfer. Fill a dish with cinnamon, dip a fat cotton ball into the spice and dab it onto the marked lines. After you have covered the entire piece, carefully lift the pattern, and trace your lines with whatever type of marker you choose for your fabric. Shake the cinnamon out, and quilt. I've found that the cinnamon will stay long enough for you to easily trace your design and it leaves no trace.
Attn machine quilters: when you need to tansfer an intricate design to the quilt top, don't worry about marking. Just trace the drawing on to tissue paper.(The kind used in gift boxes, you probably have some stashed away or can get for free at your favorite Dept store.) Pin the tissue to drawing and sew on the lines. The tissue easily tears away and there are no marks to remove.
When arranging blocks before sewing into a quilt top, use a safety pin across each block edge where they will be joined. The whole thing can be picked up an taken to the sewing machine. Fold over one row, remove the safety pins, use straight pins to match seams, etc., and chain-piece the whole row. It is not necessary to cut the threads between blocks. When the rows are finished in one direction, turn the piece 90 degrees and join the rows across. For bed-size quilts, divide the top into four more or less equal "quarters and treat each as a separate small quilt. Before sewing, indicate the blocks where all four sections meet such as pinning them with tags 1,2,3,4. If you use this method, your blocks will never become turned around or wind up in a different place after you have carefully decided on their arrangement, and if you are interrupted, they will never get misaligned.
If you print on fabric with a black &white laser printer, you can set the ink by giving it 2-3 good coats of Krylon brand artist's fixative (available at art supply stores). This tip is from Jan Cabral. I've tested it with good results.
