    FMQ on Singer 301

    I was curious regarding what type of presser foot people were using on their Singer 301's for fmq. I found this video of a woman fmq'ing with the regular presser foot, it was just so cool. So I dropped my feed dogs, raised the pressure bar up as high as it would go and gave it a go. I have been mostly quilting with rulers so I have not been doing alot of designs, scrolling, or vining without a ruler so I what I've been able to do is not the prettiest, but holey moley, it works great!

    I have been assembling quite a few microwave cozies for Christmas gifts and need to quilt them. I made myself one as well, so I used that as my guinea pig. Like I said, there is absolutely no elegance with the design, but I free motioned quilted it using my regular presser foot.

    T is it True? H is it Helpful? I is it Inspiring? N is it Necessary? K is it Kind?

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Never thought of using a quilt block for them. Good idea for orphan blocks

    tscweaves, I saw a Youtube where a woman was using a straight stitch vintage machine where it didn't have a feed dog lower button, so she unscrewed it from underneath and took the feed dogs completely off. She took off her foot too, and didn't use any foot at all!

    That is remarkable! The longer I sew on my vintage Singers, the more amazed I am at what can be done on them and how well it can be done. They are so easy to sew on and to take care of.
