The Accufeed foot that I bought for this machine is a wonder. I totally love it. No puckers or pleats in the underside. But boy! Am I ever wrestling this quilt around. I am going over the light diamond areas four times coming in the width of the presser foot each time. Around and around. I am fluffing and stuffing but at times I still need to pass large areas through the throat space.
I took this pic on Friday. Today the two bottom pieces are all quilted and they are rolled up into little logs so there are no strings or batting hanging out for my kitties to nibble on. I am now working on the center section.
The feather idea did not pan out. I set up for free motion with the foot and the new free motion bobbin with the blue dot. Geez...I felt like I was in sewing machine kindergarten. I ripped it all out and am now continuing the straight line quilting. I also wound 10 more bobbins and put the fourth new needle in the machine this morning.
This quilt will last forever! I hope I last until I get it finished!
