Singer 221 Featherweight question
I am making this experiment quilt with my singer 221, because I don't what else to do to use the machine. I have some precut squares I got on eBay, so now I am sewing them together, but I think it won't back stitch. Are you supposed to tie them by hand at the end of each square? I am not doing that so I am just going along hoping that the crossing of the fabric will sort of take care of itself, but maybe the whole thing will come unraveled.
If there is no way to back stitch, I can not see why people want to use these machines for quilting because it's too much work, not to be able to back stitch. It helps that I don't like the quilt at all, and I don't care if fails, but I was just wondering what other quilters do to tie off at the end of the square if you are using one of these portable machines. The stitch looks very nice and it's tiny. At least I am getting practice using this machine after so many years of just having it around the house.
