    I have found that to get rid of those dreaded points if you make sure the needle is down, and let it go up and down one or two times in the same place where you stopped before starting again, it helps. I still have some points but not as many. I'm soooooo happy I took the plunge and jumped in there because this is really a lot of fun. :thumbup: :-)

    Maybe I'll get the nerve to try it one of these days. So far I seem to be a quilt top maker cause I freeze when I think of going any farther. I need some of those big girl panties too I guess.

    Get some scraps out, make a sandwich, put your darning foot on your machine and go for it! What's the worst that can happen? You use alot of thread and that's about it. Go for it, girl!! :D

    I think it's great that you have tried freemotion quilting! Keep practicing, remember to breath as you quilt and most of all of FUN!
