  1. I'm wondering if the check spring (after the tension disc, before the L hook) ever needs changed. Sometimes I see thread almost jumping when I am stitching as it passes through the pigtail before the needle. I'm getting occasional bird's nests on the back ... So I'm wondering if that check spring is worn or "tired" ....

  2. I've been away from this forum for a while - life sometimes gets in the way - but I have still been quilting!  I thought I'd share a few of the beautiful applique quilts that I have had the privilege of quilting over the past few months  - the first one is a Wendy Williams quilt (Urban Owl).  Isn't it bright and cheerful!  Hobbs Wool batting and Superior So-Fine thread

  3. Just beautiful.  I love the dimension that the double battings give but I wonder if it is too heavy to sleep under if you live in the south.  I think it might be for where I live so I tend to go solo with the wool batting and get pretty good definition but not quite as good as this.  You did a superb job reading and listening to the quilt whisperer on this one.  Absolutely love it. 

     

    Thanks, Jeanne - it was a lot of work but worth it!  I agree with you about the weight of the quilt.  After I finished and took it off the frame I realized how heavy it was.  I love the definition for quilting, but I really think it's heavy.  I have another big one to do for my daughter and will only use one layer of wool.

  4. I finally put my Swoon quilt (Thimble Blossoms) on Freeda - my most ambitious quilting to date  Continuous Curves in the swoon block; Curved crosshatching and feathers in white areas . . . I used the leftovers from making all those HSTs to make a pinwheel border.  I used two layers of batting - Hobbs Wool on top; Hobbs 80/20 underneath; Glide thread; Lisa Calle's ProEcho Rulers.
