I am attempting my first appliqued quilt, and I am having a heck of a time. I used Heat N Bond fusible web, and am trying to just do a simple zigzag stitch on the edges. My machine keeps skipping stitches, the upper thread breaks and the needle gets gummed up. I'm not sure if it's all related or not. I have tried different needle sizes, different thread, different machines, and it still keeps happening.
Right now my blocks look like crap and I'm ready to give up.
There must me an answer out there! Lots of people can do this and make it look good, so I know I can too, I just need help!
