I am working on a project that needs to be completed by Saturday and I am attempting to teach myself to machine quilt. I thought it would be somewhat easy to do. I have my quilting foot and darning plate on the machine and this is how the first test worked out. It doesn't look too bad to me for my first try. But then you turn it over and this is what you get...

I don't know what happened! My movement wasn't smooth but is this supposed to happen? I was trying to run the machine at a speed equal to the moving of the fabric. I was thinking about using the walking foot to quilt with but I should be able to do this with a quilting foot, wouldn't you think? I have a lot of curves in the project and don't think I'll be able to see them very well using the walking foot. If I can't get this technique working for me quickly, I'll have to start hand quilting to try and meet my deadline. Any suggestions as to what happened or any tips to make this process easier?
