Sorry to anyone with delicate sensibilities, (talking to you mom!), but this is the nicest title I could think of. So it's a rainy Sunday, and I thought I'd get out my Pfaff manual and a test quilt sandwich today to practice some free motion quilting, with an eye to doing circles on the Terrain and linen baby quilt. After an hour, I realized something: I SUCK at fmq! I am so frustrated. I can't get the stitches to be the same length for the life of me! I turned down the speed, I turned down the stitch length, and it just won't come.
This, sadly, was my best outcome:
Does everyone have this much trouble at the beginning?
Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong?
