I have an HQ16. Generally I do "quilting for dummies" - groovy boards - or use the rulers for making shapes. I have been practicing feathers and finally figured out what works for me. All of that is fun and gives me pleasure but I HATE meandering. It makes me tense and exhausts me. I looks like it should be relaxing and my DILs love to do it thought I frequently holler down the stairs, "Slow down!"
I made a Twister baby quilt from Dr. Seuss fabric for my first grandchild. My son says, "You are going to use the all over squiggly lines to quilt it, right? That will look so Dr. Seuss like." So, I am. The shower is tomorrow and I hated the thought so much I put it off until this morning. After less than an hour I had to take a break.
Does anyone else have this problem? I can go for a couple hours at a time using other methods but this one just wears me out. I am not tense. My shoulders and back don't ache.
Okay, back to the dungeon - basement with quilting machine.
Hope you all are having a great morning.
