The Crafty Unicorn Posted August 27, 2007 Report Share Posted August 27, 2007 OK, I have a "quilt" to do... It has a batik back and the front is home dec fabric. Not real heavy, but by no means quilter's cotton. All I have to do is outline some flowers. It's one single piece of fabric. The lady just wants a lap/throw to match the cushions and slip covers on her porch furniture. I have it loaded and things are going so far so good. I cleaned the machine really well, put in a new needle, left the tension on the top loose, am going slow and as steady as possible. I have a teal thread in the bobbin and a light turquiose in the top and a Fairfield traditional poly batting. My thread tension is set a little bit too tight on the top, just so if a problem happens, I can see it. Have I forgotten anything? I just don't want this to become a problem. It's going to be nice when it's done, not snuggly, but nice. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
