I am fairly new to quilting and very new to free motion quilting.
I made my grandson a small quilt, safari animals on the front, cozy flannel leopard print on the back. I thought I was doing so well, I did the quilting on it but my poor hands were sore the next day, especially one thumb. It was only after I was reading a magazine about FMQ that I realized that I forgot to lower my feed dogs......No wonder it was harder than heck to tug around. At least my machine still seems fine after doing that. Please, join me, I dont want to feel foolish all by myself, tell me what silly mistake you have made, either now or when you first started quilting. Hopefully we can learn from each other.
