I quilted two more blocks last night — one with the stitch regulator (and the foot pedal), one without.  The stitch regulator seemed to work a bit better.    But my manual quilting has also improved as well.  I think working with the stitch regulator helps get the feeling of smooth quilting into my hands.  I’m getting up some speed with both methods . . .

Of course, the black thread and black fabric are very forgiving, and this is far from perfect, but if the books I’ve read are right, what’s important right now is just getting a feel for the coordination of foot-hand-machine, and the perfection will come along in time.

And just as important, I’m having fun.
