See what I have been doing?
All the way across this quilt I have been removing stitches.I know that quilting with batiks can be challenging but this is crazy. On the first 8 inches across, the stitches looked fine. I always go under the quilt and check for tension and thread issues. There was a thread break so I re-threaded and started across the quilt. About 3 inches from the other side the thread broke again and it looked “funny”. On the underside the thread tension is on again, off again.
I ripped for 2 hours and gave up. Hopefully I will get the last stitches out this evening and start over. I really wanted to get this one done before I left for retreat.
On a happier note, the other quilt I loaded this past weekend is finished…including the binding! As soon as it is washed and “crinkled” I will show you a photo. I tried binding on the machine and it worked out great. No aching thumbs!!
