    I move pretty fast. If you go too slowly or stop and start, you can't get nice graceful curves. At least, I can't! It really helps to take a class and then practice on scraps.

    oh - and as Rebecca said, load a lot of bobbins first. I go through about 6 of them on a twin size bed.

    I only wear gloves when I do free motion, My gloves are lite weight cotton, after all the dollar store kind, so my hands don't sweat and they are very lite weight.

    When doing freemotion quilting I use the Machinger gloves. My skin is dry and just slides over the fabric with no "grip" IMHO, they are great. Remember, practice, feed dogs down, breathe and don't get your shoulders up around your ears. :lol: Sometimes I use the rubber doorstops from Walmart to tilt the sewing machine and give my neck a different position.
