Derek's Quilt



Pieced and free motion quilted. All done and so pretty. I just love rainbow quilts!
Some of the quilt was quilted using my Singer until the foot started to have issues.
I was in the market for a Baby Lock, Anna to be specific. They were on sale so I bought one and a free motion quilting foot. The directions said to use 0 tension and 0 stitch width. I was able to get it to quilt okay some of the time. A blogging friend said she used tension and stitch width with her Baby Lock. I tried 4 tension and 3 1/2 stitch width. No more issues. Oh yeah. I slowed down and started listening to my machine.
Miss Anna is a SWEET little machine for beginners. My granddaughters are going to enjoy sewing on this machine.

You would never use 0 tension, but 0 stitch length is used if you leave the feed dogs up because then they just go up and down but don't pull the quilt to the back. If you drop feed dogs you just don't need to change anything unless you are getting loops on one side or the other and then tension would be adjusted.

Double the fun! Front is prettier, of course, but the back is lovely, as well. Good job!
