I have a couple of Bernina's and my dealer told me the exact same thing about using Coats & Clark. Something about how they wind their thread onto the spool so that it comes off opposite of other threads and causes more lint build up.

I agree with the rest of the thread comments; your fabric choices are awesome and will be anxious to see the finished product. Thanks for sharing.
Great fabric choices. I'm looking forward to seeing the finished quilt.
Great fabric and attitude....love your "can do" style....you'll get your machine FMQing in no time.....look forward to seeing your work. As you may have guessed we LOVE pics.
Out of Hock?????? 'Any machine should be able to do fmq......if you cannot drop your feed dogs just put a piece of masking take over them......and just hand guide the fabric.........
As far as any machine not liking any brand of thread.....bullhocky.........it is just a matter of adjusting tensions to match the twist of the thread, correct needle, and of course cleaning the lint out of the machine on a regular basis (and that is after about 8 hrs of sewing) certainly helps any machine work with any thread.............I have had many brands of machines, used many brands of threads, doing various techniques and have never found "doesn't like the thread" as a bonafide reason for it not working....usually is operator error related problem.....

Sure. Minor violation as I see it :)
Thank you for the tape-tip.
If you can set your machine on 0 for stitch length, you can FMQ with it, and drop the feed dogs. If you can't drop feed dogs, tape a postcard over them with a hole cut out for the needle.
