This week on my Design Wall is still my Great Granny Square quilt, although it is really on my machine not my wall! LOL
I am really enjoying doing my free motion quilting on my Singer 16 Treadle. She is 123 years old! This is my third quilt to FMQ, the other two were just stippling, so I am still learning. I'm enjoying all of the extra head space I have on this Industrial machine, it is a lot bigger than my Janome.
I was told to set my stitch length to zero and that has helped a lot with not having big stitches. I was also told to loosen my top tension which has also helped a lot.
After spending three days unstitching 18 flowers last week because of my puckers on the back, it is going pretty well now.
I am using a light pink thread.
I keep moving the cats off my quilt. Last night I had a good rythm going when the treadle just stopped even though I was still treadling. I looked over and my other kitten, Cupcake, had pulled the belt off the wheel! Crazy cat! This morning they knocked the spool of thread off and it was tangled all through the legs, and all around Custard, my other kitten.
I had my husband record me doing FMQ on my treadle. Remember, I'm not an expert at FMQ, but I do appreciate any hints you might want to offer! I love the click clacking sound the treadle makes!
Oh, and today is my 18th Anniversary! I need to make my husband an Angel Food Cake, but to be honest, I'm so busy right now I am going to use a mix! I need this quilt finished by Friday!
