Ritathequilter Posted December 7, 2006 Report Share Posted December 7, 2006 Hi Girls I just finished a top that almost made me wish I'd never gotten into quilting for others. The top was flannel with tons of thick seams, that weren't pressed in the right directions The quilt pattern was Mosiac tiles...for those of you that know that pattern. The backing was also flannel, the batting Hobbs W&N. I noticed the wavy outside borders before I even put it on the machine but thought I could work with them. Turned out they bowed out quite far and had to be trimmed off after I took the quilt off. I ws also unsure of which thread to use on this top . I thought I should use King Tut but used Bottom line both on the top and in the bobbin because I'm most comfortable with that thread and I really didn't want to be fussing with the tension. But I ended up with so many problems with thread breakage....I bet it broke at least 60 times on this lap size top. Which thread should I have used or what thread do most of you use when quilting a double layer of flannel like this? I did finish it and it looks good but next time I'll have the customer remove the warped borders and press the seam allowances in the right directions.
