My mother-in-law came over last Saturday to help me set up my quilt. It is about queen sized. When I tried to do a straight (ha ha) stitch in the ditch my sewing machine acts like it is going to die. My stitch length is on the longest setting, but it is still stitching so close and tight that it took me a day to rip out a row that I messed up. I have a card table set up beside me to try and help hold the weight of the material, and I have tried to sew faster, slower, medium and nothing seems to help. Do any of you have any suggestions? Has anyone else had this problem?
I really want to finish this quilt soon so I can begin another project
