|Did I mention, Kate got the same machine as I did??!! I brought it up to her and brought mine along too. We had a grand time sewing together.|
|One of Kate's WIPs, same as my QAYGFMQQAL|
|Kate was having a bit of a problem joining the blocks. I showed her the method I use, and voila, it worked.|
|This is one of the quilts Kate is working on for a wedding present. Pretty!|
|But don't worry, I worked on my wonky/improv. quilt. I have to say, I'm REALLY bad at stitching these big, long lines. I know, I know, PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE!!!!|
|Stitching the fillers is MUCH easier. A little paisley and loop-de-loop.|
One of the things that they showed me in the basic training for my new Pfaff, was how to test and adjust the bobbin tension, I've never done that on my Babylock. The setting between cotton thread and polyester (Isacord) thread was quite different. So my question for Leah this week is: Is is normal/typical to set the bobbin tension for each type of thread? Do you piece with cotton and FMQ with Isacord? Would that mean I would have to change the bobbin tension back and forth?
My stats are:
Wonky/Improve QAL quilt - (Continue to quilt)
