OK, this is the question I never thought I would ask. I am a machine quilter all the way. Recently I got a queen size top whole cloth, and printed with a beutiful design to hand quilt. I got it at a garage sale. I am looking fiorward to do that one later this year when I have a small surgery, while I recover.
In order to prepare for that, I decided to take a small project and hand quilt it. I got a pre-printed piece from the quit stencil company. Here is the problem: I started stitching, and having a good time. In the front my stitches look like this: - - - - - - in the back they look like this: l l l l l, and on a few areas I see / / / / /. I can tell that I have no control of what happens in the back. Why is this happening? I am a cross stitcher and can not for my life do the rocking method. So far I am doing stabs to quilt.
I expected that if I see what I want to see in the front, the same should be in the back, but obviously is not happening. Can someone with some experience guide me?
