I tried a new technique for machine quilting:
Move the width of the zig-zag stitch to 2mm and free motion quilt. Julia used this technique on her "Ezekiel Saw the Wheel." She inspired me to use this method.
Working with metallic thread can be very trying. It loops. It breaks. It skips stitches. So...I put my thread through a whisk, loosened the top tension, and used a metallic needle size 80. It worked like a charm. :)
Friday I spent the day at Father and Mother's machine quilting...The humming of the machine must of put them to sleep.
