Free motionquilting

lowraineJuly 1, 2012

Decided I would try my hand in free motion quilting. All the youtube tutorials make it look so easy but they don't give much on how to set up your machine. I did find one that said to set your tension on 0 and your length on 0 and your width on 0. My machine has a tension that is normally placed on 5 with length of stitch and width of length settings. I can only get the length and width to go to .5. The tutorial wants 0. By the way my machine is a Sears 5500 model. Maybe someone out there has the same or simular machine and can tell me what they set theirs on for free motion quilting. Oh I did put a cover over the feed to keep them from getting in the way. My machine will not drop the feed. Any thoughts on the subject would be so helpful.

You'd probably get more help if you post this on the quilting forum.
