    The Storytellers

    This is a block of the month quilt from a local quilting store. I used So Fine and Bottom Line. It's a new customer who made it for her cousin. She's now making one for herself and I'll be quilting it. When I do, I'll change one quilting design. It's the blocks around the center. I put individual wreaths in them, but didn't use the right color thread and you can't see them. So I'm going to put the same type of feathers that I did in the cream background across the entire section.

    Started this quilt in 2005 and finished piecing that year. It has waited way to log for it's turn on Frannie Ann. 2016 0708_144157 by Dell Dunman, on Flickr 20160711_115003 by Dell Dunman, on Flickr 20160711_115013 by Dell Dunman, on Flickr 20160711_115108 by Dell Dunman, on Flickr 20160711_115059 by Dell Dunman, on Flickr 20160711_115049 by Dell Dunman, on Flickr 20160711_115112 by Dell Dunman, on Flickr If you click on the photo you will go to flilckr and see all of the photos.

    Poor stitch quality

    APQS did not feel it is the wheels. She walked me through removing the back cover. She had me make some adjustments and my stitches are now smooth and even, and accurately reflect the stitches per inch settings. I have a few things to check on the table. I am planning to have a house call by Dave Jones as soon as that works for us both. He can evaluate the wheels. But I am not getting any of the drag others describe. I just loaded a quilt of my own to see how it performs on an actual quilt.

    APQS Video Tutorials

    I love the tutorials on the APQS website, but wish they would be available on a DVD or wish we could download them to a DVD ourselves...............unless you have a computer near the long arm (which I don't), it is difficult to watch these on the computer and then try to remember the method when I get to the long arm..............Any suggestions?

    Glide magna bobbins

    There are different types of Magna-Glide Bobbins, so you can't classify them all the same! There are Delights which have the Glide thread on them, so they match the top thread and is a 40 wt thread. these are thicker, so they have less thread on them than the Classic magna glide bobbins. The "classics", have a 60 wt thread, so yes, they hold alot more thread. I absolutely love these! They run beautifully and I can't imagine how it could cause needle breaks. These have magnets so if you are doing the drop test for testing your tension, it doesn't work with these! You need to just go by feel. If you are loosening these bobbins enough to get them to "drop" then you have the tension too loose. I have pretty much stopped winding my own bobbins and use the "classic" magna glides exclusively. I have all the colors available in the "classics" and can usually get a color that will blend with my backing.

    Glide magna bobbins

    I love them. The ease of not having to wind your own. You almost never had to adjust your tension on the bobbin case with these; and I do believe there is more thread on them versus your own.
