    4 more charity baby quilts done!

    so at Joanns the other day i couldn't find Aurfil and my machine, a Janome, doesn't like the connecting threads thread and i have the hardest time quilting these on my machine! the thread constantly burbles on the back and makes me just cry! i found Sulky 100% "viscose" and i bought a big spool of it and had my fingers crossed. ive done all 4 of these one right after another with not ONE single issue! not ONE! i am SO hooked on this thread! i still have to finish these, and have a pile we are working on piecing now, but i was just so impressed i had to share!

    Love your quilts - and thanks for the tip about the thread!
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    Love your quilts, Terry!! Beautiful work as always!!! I'm so glad that the Sulky thread worked for you. I know how frustrating it can be when the quilting on the front looks great but HOWDY....don't look at the back!!!! Keep going, girl.

    I think your quilts are soooo cute. I am glad you found the thread that works for you, I have been having trouble with my thread bunching up on the backs of my quilting too. It is very frustrating. I make quilted tote bags, and I don't check the back after every row I sew, so when it happens, I have rows to take out. I quilt the fabric, and then I make the totes. It takes five hours to quilt it and five hours to make the totes, and that is when I don't have to take any rows out. Great job, and thank you for sharing.
