FREE MOTION QUILTING AND USING MY REGULAR FOOT ON MY PFAFF THAT HAS DUAL FEED

I have had several request for a post, people wondering what I am up too... So here goes..... As you know I am doing a king size quilt for a customer. Here is some of the quilting I have done.


I used my regular foot (dual feed) for the circles and hook and then just stippled around it.

Here I see that I need to go slower when I am in the other loop.
Some of you have seen this....I used my regular foot (actually my applique foot).  Took a long time but was well worth it.
I tried fixing the tension but I think maybe I am going a little too fast in the loop....but you won't see me taking this out.
Here I just did some swirls....boy I love to swirl.  This is the outer border (whohoooooo at the home stretch)
 
 
You all know I have a need for speed when it comes to quilting. 
 
 As you can see, there are places that I need to slow down.  If I was driving a car I would be arrested but......
in my quest for speed I broke my hoping foot....the plastic loop at the bottom....twice I ran over that puppy when it came loose.  I suppose the vibration from the machine loosened the screw.  Pooey.
 
I know I have a darning foot somewhere....but where????  I have my "Big Foot" but it is too high up.  So I am going to play with it to see if I can adjust it to where it will work.
 
Yes, this is the same quilt I ran out of fabric on.......  I was for sure I would be at the binding stage today but as usual I underestimate my time and issues happen.
 
Maybe tonight I can work on it some more and maybe acquire a foot somewhere???  Going to be gone a good portion of the day so...all of you out there
 
have fun and don't try to make any records speeding!

  1. I can't imagine how you do that with the dual feed foot. Maybe you should do a video!
