I've been learning a lot from everyone on the message board & recent topics. Thanks! I was hoping that one of you might be able to give me some advice when quilting on top of appliqued pieces. I haven't done a lot of applique (until now) & found that when I tried machine quilting on top of the appliqued pieces of a baby quilt, my sewing machine would skip stitches occasionally. I tried different needles with some success (not as many skipped stitches) and adjusted tension but still get those skipped stitches occasionally. Tried slowing down, tried speeding up...etc. My machine didn't skip stitches on the regular parts of the quilt that were not appliqued. I used a lightweight fusable web for the appliqued pieces. I would appreciate any helpful hints as I have 2 more patterns for quilts that I would like to make which have a lot of applique. Thanks!
