    Well done for trying free motion, it looks great. I have done it with quite good results on small projects and around the outside border on my large sampler quilt, but I am abit daunted to do anything larger all over just yet :D

    Jerrie, you have the touch. You are doing an awesome job-your quilt is going to be gorgeous when you get it finished. I have the same problem with invisible thread breaking. I finally put it in a jar that I sat behind my machine and threaded it through a hole in the top and it stopped breaking.

    ...the put the jar trick works well as well as trying to put the spool upright on the spool holder, even perhaps with a netting over it...
    looks great
