Instead of Free Motion quilting, I am calling this free form quilting....I just did what ever floated my boat....I might get kicked off the boat but sure was having alot of fun in the process. Isn't that what this is all about, having fun?
Not sure if I like it but it gave me more confidence to move on...
I want to show you all what I learned, maybe some of you knew this and maybe there will be someone out there that doesn't and ... just maybe it will save someone time and frustration.
You see this foot....there is a screw at the top of the piece...see it, it is on the top right? Well...this allows you to lift the foot higher off the quilt or lower it. In my case, lowering the foot to where it touches with just enough room to move the quilt allowed me to have more control over my stitching. It also eleviated the skipped stitches and sometimes bad tension. Once I learned this, my free motion moved up a knotch in fun.
ALL I WANT TO DO IS HAVE SOME FUN!!! Know that song????
I did my March Boot Bash.....I used my Samoan Fabric......oh don't you just love those fabrics? You can not see the March at the bottom, I think I am going to have to take it out and put a darker stitch in. No worries....ain't taking it out today...maybe not tomorrow....and maybe not at all....it is no fun ripping out.....yep...this post is about having fun.....
Gene will announce the winner of the button giveaway on his blog Tuesday night.....so I will see you all then.
