We do okay through the design/area/repeat/fit/point-to-point/negative distance/baseline stages, and get it all laid out on the screen and successfully quilt Row 1. Then I run into trouble. The machine moves to the beginning of Row 2, just like it should, and the motors are disabled. I drop the needle into the quilt, and advance the quilt so there is enough throat space for the next row to stitch out. This is where I run into trouble. My next steps are pressing Quilt, Reposition, Start Point, Cancel, Resume, and Run (this is according to the instructions in the manual). Instead of stitching Row 1, the machine heads toward me! In fact, I have to hit the Emergency Stop because it seems determined to run into the front roller.
I then give up and reset the area for a couple of rows at a time, rather than the whole quilt, but then there's guesswork at getting it aligned properly, i.e., distance between rows, etc. I would prefer to have the computer direct all of this alignment, if I can figure out how to get it to work!
I notice there is also a button called "Current Point". Do I do anything with this? Thanks for your help. Donna
