Inspiring Quilters, Stitch by Stitch
Ok. I finished destroying the first sacrifice to the machine and thought I had a fairly decent command of the darn thing.
I was wrong.
I'm starting to think this machine is one of my life trials.. a key test for my place in heaven.
I got all nervously excited to start the first non-test-like quilt this morning. I got it all situated on the rails. I wound the bobbins. I threaded the machine and double checked the rails and bungees. I started sewing....I forgot to put the foot down. AGAIN.
I fixed the problem and started once more. Keep in mind that I have sewn in more than one commercial sewing establishment, I've made EZ-ups, sleeping bags, table cloths, napkins and sports clothes of all kinds. I can use almost any commercial machine out there with great success, I made a wonderful piece rate sewing all of these things and was always the first to 'test' any new pattern, design or machine that came into those places.
I discovered this morning..I cannot sew a straight line. I decided to quit while I was ahead. I'm going to walmart, buying 5 yards of dollar a yard fabric and spending the weekend practicing quilting straight lines..then I'll take apart what I did this morning and try again.
If I fail once again..there will be a quilting machine for sale, lol.
