I was goofing around this evening and wanted to try some free motion quilting, but not quite ready to do it on my latest quilt and I am so glad I didn't. First, after I dropped my feed dogs, my machine didn't want to sew at all in spite of having a quilting foot on it. Then, the bobbin thread was all knotted.
So, I ripped the stitches out, pulled up the feed dogs, put a regular zigzag foot on my machine and off I went with his oven mitt, just toodling around and around and it went fairly quickly and I had no puckering, or excess fabric. Then I realized, it probably wouldn't hold up with the batting I had used, so I gave it to the kids to add to their repertoire of stuff they use when playing the cooking channel, or store.
Here is a closer look at the design and tomorrow I will do this on my quilt, but make it concentric squares and see what happens!
I really loved this fabric for my potholders, it was bright and cheery! Oh well,, it is a quick project!
