  1. I am in Virginia, I have been using a humidifier in the basement. I want to start on this quilt but would like some opinions on the batting.
  2. Quilting with Minky or Cuddle Backing

    yes, That is the way I Did it. that way the clips won't pull or stretch the minky
  3. Quilting with Minky or Cuddle Backing

    It has been awhile but I didn't have any problems. I did use a batting. I think a low loft poly batting. Make sure you don't stretch the Minky when loading. Load with the lengthwise grain against the leaders. I adjusted tension as usual. Good luck Betty
  4. I tried the glide bobbin and it pulls through easier . I was able to loosen the top tension and and it looks lots better. The only thing, this customer likes the cotton look and not the shinny look of glide. What a way to start the week.
  5. I have already cleaned out the bobbin case and did get some fuzz out. I cleaned out the bobbin area to make sure nothing was caught. I usually can get good tension just by the feel. This has me baffled. The batting is the only new element. Maybe I will try a glide bobbin but I don't have the color I need.
  6. String of Pearls

    Wow!!!! It amazes me to see all these beautiful quilts!
  7. Coming back!

    I am piecing the lion now and I think I will follow your quilting advise. Prayers for all! Betty
  8. Has anyone used Dream blend 70 cotton and 30 poly? I am having problems with balancing my Tension. I have the bobbin so loose (super bob) and the top tension so tight that the screw is sticking way out. I have re-wrapped the thread guides and even changed threads. Even though my bobbin is loose, when I pull it through the batting it feels tight. Has anyone dealt with this before? top threads: 1st Gutermann, 2nd Superior
  9. In a pinch neat trick

    The spools just pulled right off and I rubbed the rest of glue off the stand. ( like rubber cement) I thought about using poster putty, but couldn't find any so resorted to the glue.
  10. I am finishing a quilt and in order to get the right color for the accents I used two threads. Don't have a duel cone holder so used small spools of Mettler's poly sheen, used fabric tack glue and attached to cone holder. Worked like a charm. Hope this helps someone!
  11. My Tribute to Betty

    It is beautiful! I had a quilting friend recently die and it is hard not to call and ask her advice. What a very special tribute.
  12. Looking for ideas

    I'm with Jennifer. Do an open side to side movement following the fabric. This will enhance the background fabric. Match your thread to the background and it will blend in and give texture.
  13. Thread snapping

    You might be doing everything right and your cone of thread was bad. Glad it's done.
  14. That is so scary! I almost fell for a delinquent tax scam. Then remembered you must receive written notice then called my accountant. ( brother in law )
  15. As always, your quilting surpasses my wildest dreams!
