I am very new to this.. never done this before.. Working on a project that a lady had started hand quilting and was over half way done with it.. so I want to finish it! .. I can not get down the whole "rocking" with a thimble thing... I am doing it but my seams are still far apart! .. Any helps? .. It was in a hoop, but I took it out and it seemed to work better for me without one.
