I have been looking forward to using the BSR foot on my machine because I thought it was the answer to my rather uneven machine quilting....... It's not that easy at all!
So far I have tried to machine quilt the May JQ and it was slightly disastrous, I'd no real control and the stitching was even worse than when I used an ordinary embroidery foot. A new new May JQ now needs to be made! I nearly put the BSR away for good, but curiosity got the better of me and I knew I wanted to fathom out how on earth you make it work for you.
So now I'm working on calico that can be binned and just trying out all the things I can think of and trying to get the feel of how to make the stitching much less jerky.
The photo below gives you an idea of how much more practice I still need before I can use the foot on a real piece of work. A bit disappointing as I was hoping the quilt "Strata" while up in Scotland catering for a wildlife group on a self catering holiday (the things I sign up to doing!!!)
Still my mother always told that practice makes perfect!
