    I have a baby lock crafters choice machine and recently started free motion quilting but for some reason I am having a heck if a time getting things to work right on this one. I have used other machines to do the same thing but am having major issues with the baby lock. I have the right darning foot, but I am a little iffy on things suck as tension and feed dogs as every machine is different. So if there is anyone who free quilts on a baby lock any tips would be greatly appreciated. Thanks a bunch! ...

I use the 1/4 foot on my sewing machine every time and I set and iron my seams. Still when I piece it all together I have scruffy edges and mismatched seems all over the place. What am I doing wrong???
