Marcy and I were so excited to finish the veterans quilts Tuesday and I brought them upstairs right away to trim and photograph them.
I didn't bother to inspect them because I never have weird tension problems on my Innova. But I've also never used Superior Lava thread. I should have done a little testing before hand. We had a number of thread breaks/shredding while we were quilting but that's not what these areas are. These are like thread burps and I couldn't leave them that way.
I decided to fix them on my regular sewing machine and not tempt the longarm again. As long as someone isn't closely inspecting the stitching I don't think these repairs will stand out at all.
From the front they are completely invisible. There were 18 spots over the 2 quilts and it only took about an hour to fix them. I feel much better about turning them over today.
Let's take a moment to appreciate a truly rare sight....a clean sewing table!
Maybe it's about time that I get back to playing around with these blocks again.
I'm Vicki Welsh and I've been making things as long as I can remember. I used to be a garment maker but transitioned to quilts about 20 years ago. Currently I'm into fabric dyeing, quilting, Zentangle, fabric postcards, fused glass and mosaic. I document my adventures here.
