started quilting again...

Posted by   + Show Post

 Just started quilting again and wondering if there are any other quilters in this group.

 I am still cutting out my pieces but it is a scrap pattern and I do have plenty of scraps.

 That's the problem I am having with my machine. How do I adjust the pressure of the feet?

I do a lot of stuff! :) I can quilt, sculpt, make jewelry, paint and glaze ceramics, fuse glass, paint, do macrame and wire wrapping, needle and wet felt, make yarn with a drop spindle, make beads and sculpt with polymer clay, and knit and crochet wash cloths. :)

When I machine quilted I had to adjust the pressure of the feet or else my stitching kept getting tangled and jamming. I was literally pulling the fabric through instead of letting the feed feet move it.

Quoting idee:

 And I thought you only sewed.

 I have been quilting for almost five years. I still have to practice working on the actual quilting part. It just seems that when it comes to a straight stitch my machine acts bratty.

 So after I finish my classes and get to work I am thinking of getting a new machine as a gift for myself.

No i haven't, i have bought publications with the intentions of trying it out, the closest I've gotten is appliqueing, so much for my big ideas in the quilters world, you are so lucky to have that craft experience, and i am in awe of you for it. :-)
