|One block of the unfinished top|
I started on the afore mentioned scrap quilt and was going along at a pretty good pace, when I ran out of the thread that I had brought. You would think that my friend's studio would have some similar black thread that I could use and replace, but no! I tried some thread that she did have, but I think it was a fine, silky machine embroidery thread, and it just would not work in the quilting machine! When I put it in the bobbin case and tried to use it, it just made a mass of loops on the bottom side of the quilt, no matter what I did! I tried everything! I finally gave up. (Remember, I am still learning.) So here's what I have done so far and I will try to finish it again today with some different thread that I bought. BTW, this is free motion quilting, for those of you who are not quilters, as I know not all my readers are.
