When free-motion quilting, where do you start? We all learned to sew with the fabric bulk on our laps and sew away from ourselves. This is also how I was free-motion quilting and it was always difficult to look behind the needle and see where I'd been and where I needed to go. THEN THE LIGHTBULB WENT OFF!!!!!! taadaaahhh!!
Now the unquilted bulk of a project is behind the needle. I start quilting at what would be the bottom edge and pull or move the project toward myself. I can see where I've already quilted and can see where I need to go next, east and west and forward. It is much easier this way for me.
So, which direction do you work? Just wondering.
