Ok if you read this post you'll know I had some seriously quilty trouble? Well, I've been working on a smaller project. Which is really rather secret at the moment so I can't share it with you now. Anyhow, I got to the quilting of said small item. A cushion cover backed with fusible fleece. I got out my trusty walking foot and started to quilt and er...uneven stitch length and the foot was stuttering about just like it did when I was trying to quilt my Hope Valley Quilt. Now doing that quilt I'd assumed the extra weight had meant the quilt was having trouble feeding. It's now occurring to me that perhaps something is wrong with my walking foot. I can't see what though. Can you oil them like you would the moving parts of your machine? Have I done something really stupid and forgotten that I need to set something on my machine? Advice is needed because I don't want to go and buy a new walking foot if I'm doing something stupid. It's always worked fine in the past. And it does seem to be feeding the layers all together it just seems to be stuttering and struggling doing it then racing ahead when it can do it; the result being some really tight together stitches followed by some normal ones. I don't think the problem is with my machine because when I switched to my regular foot sewing was fine!
Potentially dodgy walking foot.
