Pennywinkle Quilting Frame - problems quilting circles and curves
On a Pennywinkle frame with a Brother short arm machine, I can't seem to make a smooth curve. My best circle looks kind of like a square with rounded corners!
I have no trouble with straight lines or points where you change direction (like a zigzag pattern).
Is it me or the carriage platform the machine sits on? A question of lubrication?
Forward and back or sideways is easy, but circles or flower petal are my nemesis! Suggestions welcomed.
Intuitively, it sounds like it needs some lubrication, but I'm going to have to turn this over to our readers as I don't quilt on a frame, just my good old (heavy emphasis on old) D1 set into my Tracey's Table sewing machine cabinet.
Readers, if you have experience, I'd be grateful if you share it with Cindy using the 'comments' link just below. Thank you!
