 Cry

Because i know you will understand.

Smetimes my machine goes clunk, and sometimes it stops sewing properly. It's like the bobbin isn't being properly picked up. It looks fine on the top but the back is... Dodgy.

Usually i catch it and fix it asap.

Turns out yesterday i was in the groove and either missed the clunk... Or maybe it didnt clunk. I sewed together the best little skull and cross bones baby quilt and basted it.


Quilted it today. And on the third last row. I realized about half the verical rows are weak seams. And pulling apart.

So tonight, i get to spend ripping out all of my quilting so i can re-sew the seams tomorrow.

I am gutted. I don't have time allotted in my cramped xmas run up for this.

I LOVE the fabrics you used in the baby quilt, especially the one with the owls.

Sloth - How frustrating!

AIMR - Loving your disney blocks - paper piecing is definitely a skill!

Thanks!

Actually, paper piecing is pretty easy, but it helps to have the right tools...it is just that it is so time-consuming! Grin
