First - sorry for the lack of blog. I had a lovely long time off work, go back and -slam! you'd think I was the only barrister in the country! I will try a nice photo related piece tomorrow because there has been some quilting activity- in short bursts ,which I am afraid I chose over the blog.
For now can I please ask you all a question, becuase I am confused. I have been quilting a little piece with a 60wt cotton thread in bobbin (Soft Touch by YLI) and on top as well. The cream thread on top was fine. The black on top was fine. The red looped like mad on the back. (All three are Soft Touch, all had the same bobbin thread). I re-threaded the machine with the red still in the needle. Same problem. I cleaned the machine, re-threaded, same problem. I went back to the cream. No problem. Put the red in. Loops everywhere! I changed to a Coats polyester in red - no problem. So what was going on there?!
