I did a few squares with the even feed foot on. I learned that I can do things like a zigzag IF it's the width of my foot away so I can follow the line. If it's farther--I can't do it. But that's okay. If I use the foot I'll be doing in the ditch anyway. And if I zigzag--it'd be in a small place--like the middle square of a table runner.
Then I switched to free motion. I labeled the #1 try at stipple, the #2 and #3. Can you see it actually got better??? :thumbup: My daughter came in in the middle of #3 to tell me her GPA, so I goofed. (It was so good--the GPA!! :D )
I really like the ones I put a star next to. Some of the bad ones were an attempt at clouds--oh boy--kind of sad. :lol:
BUT, I'm learning which designs I CAN do--so I'll just stick to those. :wink:
OH! The first time I worked on it--my thread broke. It was making strange unsmooth lines before it broke--bumpy. I switched to "machine quilting" thread and it was much better. But, I have to say the back looks smoother than the front with both threads. Ideas?
