I've just finished a quilt top and I'd like to machine quilt it... I've only machine quilted a table runner before, so I don't have much experience with this... I've got a few questions... this is my first post here...
Instructions always say to reverse stitch when machine quilting to lock the stitch in, but I've read you aren't supposed to reverse with a walking foot. Would it be possible to lock the first and last stitches with a few super small stitches, instead of reversing?
Also, how do you quilt the borders? Do you just continue the same lines that you use in the middle of the quilt all the way through to the edge of the border?
Another thing... the quilt is a rail fence pattern.... do you think that would lend itself more to free motion quilting or to straight line, walking foot kind of quilting?
Thanks so much for any advice/help you can give!
