How do the experts make it look so easy? I have to say that I’m not really enjoying this free motion quilting business at all. Probably because I don’t often do it, I always forget exactly how to start. My Bernina machine has one of those BSR feet (stitch regulator) but I still have problems. And I’ve done some unpicking too, so it hasn’t been an easy afternoon sitting at the sewing machine.
I’m not much good a FMQing
Today I’m been trying to quilt vein lines in each of my maple leaf blocks, which just happens to be my UFO number 3. They are going OK, but are not perfect, by any means. I’ve a few more leaves to work on, and I’ll hopefully finish them off tomorrow.
I know, to get really good at a skill, we must practice, practice and practice some more. Perhaps, on reflection, I’m better just quilting with my walking foot. Or maybe I should go somewhere for lessons to see where I’m going wrong?
