When I was in the quilt shop last weekend, the owner mentioned that some well-known machine quilters tilt their sewing machines by putting rubber doorstops under the back. One of the ladies from my Art Quilt Group happened to be in the shop too, and she said that she tilted her machine before her son built her a cabinet for it.
If it was good enough for them, it was at least worth a try.
I could only find one doorstop, so I used my son’s old coloring book instead. I adjusted the legs on my extension table to keep it even with the machine bed, more or less.
I’m paper piecing the Random quilt, and I have to say that tilting the machine makes it easier to see and improves my accuracy.
