    Christmas Quilting

    Thanks for your kind comments! The tree skirt was a fun project. I wasn't able to source ready made ribbon trim, we don't have a local shop in town that sells that sort of thing, so I ordered a yard of the buffalo plaid and figured out how my rolled hem foot worked for the first time . It worked so well for this, I was thrilled! I love when I have those little victories! The table runners, I figured I'd have those whipped up in no time...of course it took me a lot longer and only just made the deadline! Seems every year I have the same talk with myself to get at it earlier in the year. Happy Quilting!

    Help! thread shredding

    I was able to finish the quilt---King Tut to the rescue! I flipped the pigtails (had used emery on them too) and checked the screw heads with nylon and emery. I may have had the sandwich too tight, but was able to do the whole quilt with King Tut without any breaks, just a funny catch when the magna bobbin was getting low. I figure the sandwich tightness and winter humidity is probably the culprit this time. Thanks for the help.

    Christmas Quilting

    Just a few projects completed for Christmas. The table runners are from a Sew Kind of Wonderful free pattern on their website and the tree skirt inspiration came from Pinterest at the request of our son who wanted a "cabin themed" tree skirt. The three tree'd runner was my first project off my new Lucey! I'm loving the extra room already! Kathy

    Sharon, thank you so much for taking the time to answer my questions! The article had great information, thank you for that also. I purchased a used Lennie and this was pretty much my first quilt on it, except for practice pieces. The front looked great and I while I looked at the back, obviously I didn't look at it close enough and I about fainted when I noticed those spots. Since this was the back of the quilt, I will try tightening the top tension a little. I used Superior Omni Thread, 40 wt on the front and back. I used a Panto; not near ready to try free motion! The panto is from Urban Elementz and it's called Vintage. I attached a couple more pictures, my first try at flying geese - they were really fun to make! Thanks again Sharon, it means a lot just to hear someone say "it's okay"! Donna
