    Diamond batiks

    I just finished this quilt and I am very happy with it. I had to tie it. My machine thread kept breaking every inch or two.

    ​Very pretty! Batiks can be a little harder to quilt due to their dense weave.

    So pretty. Use a top stitching needle in your DSM, that will help a lot when quilting batik.

    Pretty--Sometimes the problem is with the thread. My machine doesn't like some threads!
    Retired teacher, loving it.
    Love quilting also.
