I've been having a frustrating afternoon trying some new free motion quilting techniques with a circular template. I have a short arm machine and no matter where I positioned my hands I couldn't keep hold of the template all the way round (I have arthritis in my wrists which makes it more difficult) and in moving position I kept going off course.
I suddenly thought, what if I sit at the end of my machine instead of face on so I am not restricted by the arm. It works! Feels a bit odd to begin with but much more comfortable on my wrists. Anyone else tried this or have any other suggestions.
