Even after a good servicing - set to factory standards - and different thread than Aurifil 50-weight, the problem continued. The tech believes my problem lies with quilting double-batting. Oddly enough, I didn't have problems when I double-batt quilted Ad Libbing.
An IG friend recommends that I try a Superior Titanium Top Stitch needle to see if that makes a difference. When I can get my hands on a package, I'll give them a try.
This is the quilt I've been attempting to quilt. It's my own quilt design - called "Make it Easier - used to teach how to sew a variety of quilt blocks.
I steam-pressed the quilt sandwich! It helps! Only a few stitches skipped. Still, unless the Superior needle works better, I will think long and hard before using double batting again.
I've completed 12 blocks of my "Spinning Wheel" English paper-piecing project. Time to print and cut more papers, and choose and cut more fabrics for more blocks. It's one of those, "Let's-see-where it-goes" projects.
I also cut out clothes. That's a new pair of yellow shorts for me, and another Dress a Girl Around the World dress. Those pockets are gonna be too cute! Mermaids.
With mod quilter-friends at our Central Florida MQG Saturday Sew-In, I worked on this "Rainbow Rounds" foundation paper piecing project. This quilt appeared in Love Patchwork and Quilting magazine, issue 24. What did we do before we had Wonder Clips to hold pieces together?!
Thought you'd like to see some of our modern quilters with our modern makes. Good picture, isn't it? Yep, that's me - lower right. Check out more about our chapter on our Central Florida MQG blog. I write that blog too.
And here you have my flittering sewing life. Will I ever get enough of it? Linda
