Good news regarding last week's question to Leah regarding bobbin tension, Isacord and Aurifil seem to be happy at the same bobbin tension (same top tension too for that matter).
My question for Leah this week: I seem to struggle with quilting a big quilt, especially when the majority of the quilt is in my lap. It seems to get caught on the front edge of my acrylic extension table. My machine is at a good height for me (I've lowered my table and raised my chair). Short of getting one of the cool Gidget II tables (which is on my wish list, but isn't going to happen any time soon), any suggestions on how to keep my quilt from dragging on the front edge?
I did get to work on another project this week, my Quokka Quilts QAYGFMQQAL quilt. I got all of the blocks joined into rows and the first two rows joined.
|I liked this funky little plaid for joining the blocks.|
|I used this QAYG method to join the blocks. Seems to work for me.|
My stats are:
Wonky/Improve QAL quilt - (Continue to quilt)
Purple heart wall hanging ( needs borders, backing, quilting and binding)
Expanding Possibilities quilt (Continue to quilt)
Storybook quilt # 2 - All embroidery is done
Quokka Quilts QAYGFMQQAL quilt (join the rows and bind)
Geneva Public Library quilt - join and quilt (maybe make a block or two to even it out)
Sew Cal Gal's March FMQ Challenge - Need to bind.
Sew Cal Gal's April FMQ Challenge - Need to make into a pillow.
Sew Cal Gal's May FMQ Challenge - Need to make into a pillow
Sew Cal Gal June FMQ Challenge - Need to bind.
