I decided to free motion quilt my hexagon star quilt instead of hand quilting it.
I just find hand quilting takes too long.
I've been working on this quilt long enough and I want to get it done.
I love free motion quilting.
Unfortunately, I don't have a long arm, or mid arm.
My regular sewing machine, an Elna Lotus that my mom gave me is great for piecing, and mending clothing. But it is terrible for free motion quilting.
I tried it, then I tried my vintage singer, and then I finally asked my Mother-in-law if I could borrow her vintage kenmore sewing machine.
I've used it before for free motion quilting.
It works beautifully.
I don't have a big quilting bed to sit it in, so that's a bit harder.
But, It has perfect tension, the thread doesn't break every two seconds, it has a super strong motor.
I wish I had a better set up, but, that's life right.
It's getting done, and that makes me happy.
