My first test drive is off the frame.
Just a plain piece of homespun, I played with whatever colour bobbin I picked out of the box. The top colour is all yellow. Both Signature 100% cotton thread, I was so surprised at how few thread breakages I had!
I started with a simple stipple at the top, and then just worked down the quilt, trying different things, as I went.
Terrible, McTavishing … but I can only get better with practice.
Stitches were mostly well formed, some pops of bobbin colour near the end, and I may have to play with the bobbin tension a little as we totally cleaned it out in the service. When Jeff unscrewed, and removed the tension screw, I nearly died. But I will not fear tension. We can be friends, right?! Besties, I am hoping, lol!
I have loaded up a quilt top, finished nearly a year ago.
Can’t wait to see if I can pull off a half decent stipple on a quilt, first up!
Wish me luck!!
