    Hello and welcome from the Mississippi Gulf Coast. I google and youtube for tutorials. I am a beginner and practice a lot. Thank God for a good stepfather who just told me tonight he will buy thread and fabric just as long as I make something for the family. He say nothing is perfect without practice and the family would be glad to receive anything made from the heart. So I will let family critique me.

    I have been trying to adjust my Brother SE400 so I can learn how to do free motion quilting. It sounds absolutely terrible and I cannot make a rounded corner - everything is very jagged. I've read everything in the manual (about 2 pages) on free motion quilting and cannot figure out what I am doing wrong. I've dropped the feed dogs and attached the embroidery foot and tried several different quilting stitches. Any suggestions will be tremendously appreciated.

    I am working on my first FMQ quilt on my cs6000i Brother. It seems that when I get jagged corners is when the quilting isn't moving smoothly. Does it feel like the quilt just won't go where you want it to? Definitely check out the you tube videos from Leah Day and Patsy Thompson. They have lots of tips to help.
