I was having problems trying to quilt a quilt for my husband. I keep getting skipped stitches and breaking thread. I asked my yahoo group their thoughts on what I could do differently (I have a Sapphire 870) and the one light bulb moment was that it could be my batting. I'm using a thicker poly batting and I really think this is my problem. So what is your favorite batting? Is there a brand that you definitely stay away from?
