Machine quilting is one of my favorite things to do -- and this stitch is so very forgiving -- even if you "think" you can't do it I would love for you to give it a try.
Next, use the same color thread in the top and bobbin so that slight variations in tension do not show.
I always turn to Aurifil Mako Cotton 50wt thread for my top and bobbin. Quilts like a dream!
Use a panel as a practice piece -- if you like it when you're done -- turn it into a wall hanging or Envelope Pillow (as shown below -- see the tutorial here).
