This seems to happen no matter whether I'm in mode 1 or 2. I'm to the point where I've given up on it and gone back to doing free motion quilting with an old-fashioned foot, and

    The pattern is called Indian Hatchet--I found it in an old Patchwork book I found at a used book store. I adapted it to paper piecing and increased the size to a 12 inch block.

  10. black gunky stuff on my iron

    by , 12-29-2012 at 05:42 AM
    I had been making doll clothes for Christmas and using some old nylon pieces -- thought I had tested them with my iron, but apparently it was just heating up -- instant melt away!!! Couldn't budge the gunk with anything and read on this site that ironing over salt on a plain white paper would work -- and it did -- thanks so much to whoever posted that tip. Saved my almost new Rowenta!!!
