barbann03 Posted September 4, 2006 Report Share Posted September 4, 2006 I just need to vent! I made a Turning Twenty quilt with all batiks front and back. I loaded it on the machine, all excited to use the Chai Latte panto I have. I am using Masterpiece on the top and the bobbin, and I'm using Dream Blend batting. I have had nothing but problems from the start. I don't think I have gone one single row without the thread breaking. My backing threads look horrible. Thank goodness this is my quilt and not a customer, or I would be in trouble! I would spend more time frogging than actually sewing. I have 1 and half rows left, and my thread just keeps breaking. I don't know what else to do! I have tried everything. I back off the top tension, I get loops on the bottom, I have changed needles, nothing works. I will be so happy to just finish this quilt and move on. Is this typical of batiks, or Masterpiece threads. Yikes, this is supposed to be fun!!!! Well, thanks for letting me vent! Must continue practicing. The quilt is really fun, it's very colorful and bright, and will make a great addition to my family room. But, it's not going to be anything I can show to anyone because of the backing threads. Oh well! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
