No fabric in or out this week. I’m quilting the borders on the Craftsy class quilt and expect to report that out next week.
I’m having intermittent tension problems with my machine that make no sense. It sews fine for a good stretch, and then I get loops on the back for an inch, and then it sews fine, then loops. The bad tension runs are so small and far between that it seems like a waste to rip them out. All I can figure is that I don’t run my machines enough and the sewing room has too much heat/cold/humidity/whatever and the machine doesn’t like it. Annoying.
I’m also debating whether or not to add more quilting in the blocks. I planned to echo quilt around the appliques, but I didn’t want the quilting to compete with all the color and pattern. I would like the background flatter so the appliqués stand out more. I may have to try quilting a block to see how it looks with the understanding I may have to rip it out.
The quilting shows in real life more so than in the picture. I’m sure it will all work out in the end.
