Machine quilting experiments

I took a machine quilting class recently, and let me tell you, it’s not quite as easy as it looks!

I have been struggling ever since to get some good stitching out of my domestic machine at home. I think my timing isn’t right. But at least I’ve finally figure out how to get my presser foot in the right position — on my Pfaff, there’s an “in-between” spot you have to find, that allows the foot to be down, but not all the way down. This gives you the ability to sew without having the foot drag on the fabric.

After watching me play with it for a while, Mouse decided that she had to have a go. Here she is trying to quilt on one of her own panels of kitty-cat fabric. She was an instant addict, singing out, “This is so fun, Mommy! I love machine quilting!”
