I love to make quilts and have 5 quilt tops ready to be quilted, but can't afford to get them professionally quilted. I have a regular sewing machine and it has the free hand quilting foot, but I can't seem to get the tension right on the bottom side. It's all loose. What am I doing wrong?
Also, I have been checking prices online for the long arm quilting machines and am stunned at how expensive they are....how does the average quilter afford one? Are there used ones out there? and where?
