Linking with Needlework Tuesday
Took much longer than I expected, this particular batik was causing skipped stitches and broken thread! It seemed to get worse the further I went, and I wasted a lot of time correcting the booboos!
I corrected all the usual sources of such issues, new needle, larger needle, new bobbin, silicon on the thread and thread paths, loosen the quilt sandwich and check for burrs but nothing seemed to help. By the very last couple of rows it was really persistent and I was getting very frustrated, so I tried two more things-backed way off on the speed and the upper tension. That seemed to do the trick, finally and I was able to get it done a short time ago.
Why didn't I do that before?
Tomorrow I will bind it and be happy to see it go home.
The Wedding Gown Quilt is on it's way and I have one more quilt to do before vacation next week. I think I can do this!
