very pretty quilt and granddaughter.
both should be very proud
If you can take a photo of the square as you think it looked on the cover I maybe able to find it.
here is my email: email@example.com
do you remember the name of the magazine or year?
Found a very similar pattern (maybe this one) online at Annies Craft Store. Checkout the Table runners and Toppers section. Hope this helps.
colores- thanks for your response. I think my thread may have been too large for the needle. Also drag and my moving the quilt too quickly around curves. Lots of issues.
Change the needle. Make sure the thread slides easily through the eye. Check your tension. Rethread entirely including the bobbin.
no, i am having trouble, (not with t-shirt quilt) but regular cotton fabric quilt.
I had a Singer and it did not have the power factor to do prolonged free motion. Did you drop the feed dog?
Do you have a needle plate for free motion quilting? I know on my Bernina there are two different plates. I had the opposite situation in that my threads were breaking with straight stitching as I had the free motion needle plate on my machine. Also, what thread are you using? You need to use a good quality thread like Aufil
Did you use a stabilizer? If the material is too stretchy, you will need it.
what do you do with this?
hi, this is not a reply to your issue, but a question of my own. I have Brother
PQ1500, it works well until i free motion quilt. Sometimes it's good but mostly skips big stitches when FMQ. Anyone else have this machine and problem? with any suggestions for fixing it.
go to quilt blocks galore and download the pattern, I do two rows around the center star and make your squares 6 1/2" make half squares 6 7/8" square then cut in half diagonal.. this gives you a king size quilt when you add borders
patterns are FREE there
1) You pulled the bobbin thread to the top before begininning?
2) You checked your top and bottom tension?
3) Bobbin is wound correctly and inserted correctly?
These are the issues that have caused me concern in the past. What's obvious to some was not obvious to me, lol
If none of the above are the culprit, I'm as novice in you in quilting and can't be of any more help. I just recently started quilting myself but I do love my Singer from 1993.
I just purchased the 2010q and I must be doing something wrong. When I FMQ the thread breaks. It only breaks when I am FMQ'ing. I don't understand. I did purchase second hand, but the amount of money that I have purchased for feet, and long table, etc... I should have bought a new one. I did take it in for a tune up and there was no problems with it.
When I use a sandwich the thread last longer. When I use a presser foot the thread does not break. I have adjusted the tension, but I am unsure of how much to adjust. Help me if you can. I do have the auto Threader on it and I have been unable to get it to work. It is a great machine. I am just extremely disappointed, because I bought it for FMQ.
Try the Brother SQ9185. This sewing machine is great for quilting and comes with a walking foot and a free motion foot a wide table all for a little over $200. I own this machine as well as a few others and I have had NO issues.
Good luck and happy sewing.
(best price for this machine is Walmart in store)
