  1. I finally took the assembly apart and found the reason for the problem was the entire assembly had moved away from the head. When the thread went through the tension disks it was catching on the grooves on the post and breaking. I have not had any tension problems until today so never realized the tension assembly had to be tightened. Lesson learned!
  2. I have been trying to quilt with Invisifil and the thread continually broke. Changed the needle, put silicone on the thread and piece of batting in the first guide, rethreaded and ran thread through one hole above tension disks, and loosened quilt on the frame. Nothing helped and then I found the thread was not pulling easily through the tension disks no matter how much I loosened them. Tried So Fine and had the same problem. The check spring is at 11:00 as it should be so I am wondering if there is something else that I need to do or if I will have to replace the tension assembly. Thanks for your help!
  3. Gorgeous, Libby, the quilt is stunning. To reduce shadowing I will trim the dark fabric in the seam so it lies below the light fabric.
  4. Libby, you turned a simple quilt into a treasure! Lovely!
  5. They are all fabulous and a huge compliment to your technique, creativity and workmanship. You must be busting your buttons!
  6. Oh yes, love these, Libby!
  7. When I took my beginner class from Dawn I believe she said a comfortable height is at the belly button. Not sure how high the standard table legs will go. You might consider the hydraulic lift since you can adjust the height to suit your current comfort level. Right now my table is at the lowest level it will go - 36" at the backing bar - and I am sitting on a stool and doing SID. When I free motion I raise it to waist high and will occasionally raise or lower a tiny bit to get a different angle for back/arm relief. To test I raised the table to 42" at the backing bar and stopped because I was not comfortable raising it any higher, not sure how much higher it would go.
  8. Very cute and how exciting and fun for you to have Little Dell to share your passion for quilting!
  9. Love it! Wishing ribbons for you.
  10. Darlene's designs are still available on the Digitech web site. http://www.digitechpatterns.com/category_s/1844.htm
  11. Lisa and Lora, and anyone else with a Silhouette Cameo, which fusible are you using? I bought the Cameo specifically for cutting machine applique and so far am less than pleased with the results. I am using Soft Fuse, and I love it as a fusible since it is very soft and pliable but the cuts are not always clean. Any help that you can provide would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much!
  12. Beautiful! The colors are so vibrant and refreshing, love it!
  13. Love the quilt, Dell. Congratulations on the ribbon!
  14. Beautiful, Dell! Love the design and colors and quilting! Wishing ribbons for you at the show!
  15. So cute, and the dimensional additions will keep a little one occupied.
