WTF?

Please excuse the title, but really... how can my quilting go from this:


to this?


And really, who can free motion quilt, but not quilt a straight line? Seriously... it's doing my head in!


But I shouldn't complain, my stippling is improving and I am actually enjoying it now!

And as always, Sampson is enjoying it too.

Sorry, what does WTF mean?
Your meandering is looking fine to me!

Must be one of our 'ockerisms' but seriously.....all looks good with your machine quilting! Sometimes we are our own worst critics.... I know, I am!!

Hello Renee

I think there must be an issue with your feed dogs and walking foot because your free motion quilting is fine. So frustrating for you.

I am seriously envious of your machine quilting. Nice!

Looks like a tension of walking foot issue. I'm sure it wouldn't take too much to rectify. Isn't free motion liberating!? Marvellous quilt for Samson. He looks so comfy. Ann :)

Practice, practice, practice. So many folks seem to want to do tiny little meandering when BIG meandering actually looks nicer. Great job!

Your FMQ is amazing - hope you sort out your machine issues for the straight line quilting.
