Another Amazing Quilting Retreat

May 20, 2010 at 8:33 am Leave a comment

A kooky assortment of fabric purchased along with the Stitch magazine featuring the Project Improv quilt tops. One of my blocks is right there in the blue and green quilt top!

A new project to start for my rodeo obsessed little boy (after the nearly complete quilts I worked on over the weekend get their bindings sewn).

And lastly, though most importantly, a quilting lesson was learned. It goes a little something like this. Your top thread keeps fraying and breaking. After rethreading umpteen times, changing thread spools, changing needles, winding new bobbins, changing bobbins, cursing more than a little …. take a look under the metal throat plate of your machine. It is possible that there lies, unseen, a maniacal dust bunny of gargantuan proportions that is the root of this evil. The exorcism is simple and alas, quilting goodness is restored. Sigh, if only I had suspected earlier, I wouldn’t have a hundred top threads to sink on a lap sized quilt. Grrr.
