Project

Wilson Quilt 2

Project Description

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make sure you lower your feed dogs and test the tension on a test piece of sandwiched batting that matches your actual quilt. I had lowered my feed dogs and left the tension on sewing, and after going through 2 1/2 bobbins, I noticed the tension was way off, so I had to take it all out and start all over again, all because I didn't test first.

What you will need

  • all cotton

Q&A with Heather Greene

ole chook asked:
love the bright colours Heather. I use a 1930 Treadle Sewing Machine and I am looking forward to practicing the Free motion quilting on it, and hoping I am able to succeed with it. Yours looks so cool
Heather Greene answered:
Thank you! I don't know why, but my eyes are always drawn to oranges, greens and browns... Odd when red is my favorite color. : ) Sounds exciting using a treadle machine! I own an old Viking that was my Grandmothers, but it needs to have the treadle fixed and then I would have to find bobbins.
