Speed is my problem, always trying to get er done, lol...This is small -37x37 but it is a start. Not sure I can handle a larg one. I am going to keep practicing. I know that is what it takes. Ok, hope all has a wonderful day. Happy Quilting to you all.
    If thread keeps breaking, check the bobbin thread tension. If thread does not pull out smoothly without any jerks, it is too tight! I had this happen on my Grandquilter machine and watched a guy on youtube named Jamie Linn (I think) did what he said and now it works just great!

    It looks good on the front; it looks good on the back. Even the binding looks good. Good+Good+Good=GREAT! Way to go! :-)

    I think your quilt is very good. Your corners and seams look good on your piecing, the FMQ looks pretty consistent and not overly quilted and your binding lies flat. I think you should be proud of yourself and your quilt. Thanks for sharing it with us.
