I'm afraid I only have one addition to the purple family this week:
|Jacob's Ladder in purple|
I've been concentrating this week on getting the quilting done on my quilt for the Triangle Quilt Along at the Sassy Quilter. (Sorry, far to many "quilts" in one sentence!)
Last weekend I posted a quilting question and got so many helpful answers. On whether or not stitching in the ditch is necessary when doing an all over pattern the consensus is: NO! Thank you all who replied. I'm gradually working through writing replies individually. I'm sorry it's taking me so long.
Yesterday, however, I had a setback:
Do you know what causes this?
- I couldn't see any problems with the thread either on top of the machine or on the bobbin.
- It seems to have started about 2' from putting in the third bobbin, which I did after parking on the edge of the quilt and removing everything, including fluff, but not oiling (I oiled and fitted a new needle before I started yesterday)
- When I stopped to unpick the faulty threads there was an exceptional build-up of fluff round the bobbin.
- After cleaning and reassembling (about 4 hours later) everything functioned normally on my practice scrap. I still have to try on the quilt.
So I'm now going to continue, but now stop after an hour to check the stitching, the bobbin and the fluff.
I would really appreciate your thoughts on this.
