Whatever Otto did to my 820 last week, it definitely did the trick! I've been FMQing with BottomLine, and it's close to perfect, even though this time I'm quilting through a double layer of batting. It's also meant I have been able to set aside the BSR foot, since I wasn't using the BSR feature anyway, and am using the regular open toe free motion foot. It has much better visibility without the BSR unit in the way.
I really wanted to jump into the fun quilting on this quilt (peek above and below), but after doing some background fill, I realised I'd better do some of the ditch and stabilising work next, before the quilting shrunk it and puffed-up the other areas too much. I'm only marking it bit by bit, as I'm using the air-erasable marker and have no intention of needing to mark anything twice! I'm really only marking the structural lines; everything else is freehand.
The colours in these area bit off - teal in particular is hard to get right. Having photographed it under lights, it's almost impossible (for me) to comepletely correct.
