    Does it need a new needle? That is usually the quickest/easiest/cheapest fix.
    Change the needle... some times we hit pins or sometimes people pull the material through the machine and the needle bends. Sometimes needles get dull? When was the last time it was changed?

    Look at your upper thread. Is it catching on the little notch on the spool?
    Turn it over and see if that helps...

    Some times the wrong thread can be a problem.

I can't use my triangulations right now as no printer ink and no $$ to get any. Thank you for any help. Happy quilting.

  5. Attempted Long-arm quilting with a template

Had a few shells look a bit wonky. I liked it though because I didn't have to roll the quilt as much as I do with pantographs.

The remainder of the fabric will be in a chait that is cloth so it doesn't slide around and off the chair. This is important! It took me a bit to realize I needed the fabric on a cloth chair. It works well and keeps the weight evenly distributed for ease of folding. LOTS of pictures to

  9. White sheer fabric

    by , 01-04-2013 at 05:25 PM
    I was wondering how to use light weight light colored cotton in a patchwork design. I thought about reinforcing the fabric with iron-on interfacing. Then I thought it might be best to double layer the fabric pieces and treat them as one. Has anyone had any experience with this?

She also had a little dog, and some flowers on the grass. The quilt was about 80 x 90. I used Pellon cotton batting, So Fine and Bottom Line threads. She wanted the Plumage panto, but the quilting doesn't show very well. I had heard
