Happy Monday, Quilters!
Today: a machine quilting quick tip-barefoot is best!
Have you ever heard of “Shoeless” Joe Jackson? He was a famous American baseball player who doffed his cleats because they gave him blisters–earning him his famous moniker.
What about the Barefoot Running craze? Though scientific research has yet to reach a consensus on the benefits of barefoot running–many runners have embraced this practice.
Why You Should QUILT Barefoot
Quilters, it’s time to start our own fad–Barefoot Quilting!
Modern sewing machine have precision foot pedal control. Our sewing machines start and stop with exacting control. (Does anyone remember the long wind up as our old machines would stammer before the needle would start?)
However, wearing a shoe while quilting reduces that precision control.
Sewing barefoot–or at least shoeless– gives you more precise control as you free motion quilt.
So the next time YOU step in to the
batter’s quilter’s box, think of Shoeless Joe, and kick off those shoes.
Let’s add a little more “free” to our free motion quilting!
