Ok I confess, I was afraid to start quilting the quilt on my LA. I've had so many issues with that machine. I was right, I had some today but I figured them out and got things going. I've done two whole blocks on the quilt. It wasn't so bad. It could be tons better if this dang machine wasn't so wobbly when you start out moving it slowly. I know this is for my niece and she doesn't care but I do. It doesn't matter at this point how much practice I have, I need to do something to the machine to make it not feel as loose as a goose. I have metal rollers on metal poles and it just doesn't work for me. If any one has any suggestions PLEASE let me know.
