Free Motion Quilting

Here is my first attempt at free motion quilting.  I attached the foot with no problem, but I'm not sure that I ever got the tension right...I was inspired to try free motion quilting from other blogs. They make it look so easy!  How long am I suppose to practice before it looks right??  At this point, I cannot imagine putting a whole quilt through my machine with free motion...

Please give me your suggestions!!

P.S.  I cannot remember what my settings were on for straight stitching, so now I'm having problems there to!  I think I need a sewing mentor.  ha

  1. I've been wanting to try it too. Part of me thinks my machine couldn't handle it. The other part of me is just plain scared! My Sister In Law has started doing it and she said, she just practiced, practiced, practiced! You could ask her for tips - go to Brittany & Jared from my blog if you want to connect with her! Happy Holidays!
