Machine Quilting Trials

    Some experimenting done while quilting the fabric to be used for a casserole carrier.

Tuesday Tutorial Tips
******************
 Leftover backing and cotton batting from last quilt project.
 A sewing foot inherited from Momma.
Like me, most things are put back in the original package for storing and future reference notes.
 The marker is adjustable by sliding left or right.
 
 Old Singer attachments fit my Brother and Babylock machines.
There just wasn't enough pressure to pull the top fabric through
 like the bottom fabric was going through.
Therefore, at the end of the stitch line, there was always about and inch more top fabric left.
 So I reverted to the walking foot, and a sewing gauge.
I could not find a way to insert the bar into the walking foot,
although I've seen some walking feet with that feature.
There is a hole to insert the bar, but it's about an inch high above the fabric, which is of no use.
 Adding a marking bar would be a nice feature for a walking foot.
