Little Gnomes Mug Rug

What are you most proud of? I actually machine quilted! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Actually, I'm looking for advice. My stitches are flat on the front, but pulling in the curved spots on the back. If the tension is even on the 'straight' lines, how do I fix the pulled stitches in the curve? Help!

You Can Make This

Larri M made Little Gnomes Mug Rug with:

I am looking for a pattern to make some mug rugs and I ran across yours. I love it. have you fixed your problem?
Larri M answered:
Hello and thank you! I did fix the problem...I purchased a Walking Foot attachment. As far as a pattern, I just used 2" strips of alternating colors. It's about 10" wide and 7" tall. Hope this helps. Thanks for the comment! Happy Sewing.
