    Might it be due to the size of the picture? It's 1980 x <something or other> which is substantial. The quilt pic looks to be sized small. Just a guess.

    Laura,

    When I did this quilt cover for my #2 Singer 66 treadle,

    I started having puckers and crinkles on the binding so I switched to a walking foot.

    Although it doesn't properly fit the feed dogs of the 66 it did help immensely.

    Skip, I so happy that you have finally used that Two Spools. They are wonderful machine to use for piecing.
    Thanks for posting photos. Enjoy!

    Joe- Oh well, just a thought. I'll keep my fingers crossed you find a table. I did notice that they are still sold, such as on Amazon, but imagine they are pricey. Laura
