I just finished this quilt yesterday. It's for The Linus Connection, a local central Texas organization.

Thank you Wilburness. All of my quilts are for in-need kids.
OK, so after giving up on trying to get the quilting machine I bought to work, I finished my green bed quilt on my 201. Gotta love my 201.
The machine itself isn't working. I purchased it from a coworker and should have tried it out before I bought it. When I first got it home it would sew for a a few feet and then break the thread. I adjusted everything I knew of, changed the needle and now it's worse. Have birds nest thread everywhere. I called a repair man (which really erked me, since I repair vintage machines all the time) and he wanted $120 to show up. I just got frustrated with it and it is now a garage obstacle.
Machines do behave strangely when they're put on a frame because of the extra factors we introduce. Did you ever start a thread about it? If you do, I promise to try to help.
How and where do I start the thread? Going to take pictures. Thanks.
