I am relatively new to quilting and have just been doing stitch in the ditch. I am getting brave want to branch out to free motion quilting and do not know where to start.
I am sewing an a Fleetwood Macine built in the late 60's. It is fairly rugged, but simple in design.
Will my regular pressure foot work, or do I need to purchase a different type of foot? My regular pressure foot is a zig zag foot.
What is a good stitch length??
My machine does have three positions for the feeder feet - dropped, medium and high, do I drop the feeder feet?
I have tried on scrap pieces of fabrics and can't seem to get the hang of it, not sure if I am doing something draastically wrong or it will just take a lot of practice or my type of machine is not capable of doing free motion quilting.
Suggestions and hints would be greatly appreciated.
