    Darn Bobbins!!!!

    I was quilting away on a halloween panel with my longarm, totally in my zone and I felt a slight pop did a few more stitches and then checked my stitches top and bottom and everything look fine. Well half of my panel later the bobbin tension got way OFF so I guess I will begin the long process of ripping these darn stitches out!!!! I refuse to let my machine win this battle and I will prepare for round two!!!

    I hear you. I just spent the better part of two days quilting on my longarm and having to rip out stitches of one complete row of pantogragh stitching. " I will not let the machine get the better of me..." It's good to know I'm not alone.
    Quilting is my PASSION not my pass time.

    Ripping out stitches is like torture. I like to use a slightly shorter stitch to sew blocks together. I think they hold better--no proof of that just my opinion. That makes it harder to rip. I also hate removing all those little pieces of thread. Just torture!!

    I did the same thing on Saturday. I don't understand why the tension changed so suddenly.
