So this quilt has been in the works for a while. Originally meant for my daughter then modified with some vintage lace for my pregnant sister.
I had a little accident and somehow one side ended up a bit wonky so I think I'll keep it for my daughter now....I'm a bit of a perfectionist so I dont want to give it away as a present if its a bit dodgy....

I have come to the quilting stage but my machine is being a pain in the butt so I was thinking of hand quilting it. Have no idea what to do???

All the vintage lace I inherited from my step-nan. I got all her old crafty stuff  Cheesy

So what's your machine doing?

So what's your machine doing?

I think the tension discs are busted. Sad
I have fiddled around with it so much, re-threaded, replaced needles and done everything I can possibly do.
The top stitching is ok, but the bottom is a bit off, and when I pull the thread through the discs it is not smooth, it goes tight then loose a lot.
Also had to sand down some nasty sharp bits on my plate which were breaking the thread.

Do you have any other ideas of what I can do? Grin
