I have it hanging on my chair till I get my machine set up to quilt it.
While reading the institutions it said to use steam to glue the battening on to it so I got it took apart and did just that and now it ready to go , I hope
When taking it out I realized that I had 80 % of the quilting done and I really didn't want to start all over again.
If this doesn't work I don't know what I will do!
Throw it in the trash I guess.
I would hate to start all over.
Don't think I will get finished with it this month but if every thing goes good I might , who knows.
First I have to clean my big brother up and oil him good and change his needle.
and thread. Just finished quilting a big queen sized quilt.
Want him to last as long as possible, with things made out of plastic even a high priced machine has plastic parts, mostly the gears but you can't sew with out them.
Have a good one
This is what i did off and on all day Saturday.
I didn't sleep Sat. night because mu neck hurt!
So i didn't do any yesterday but i have a bunch out now by Wednesday i should be able to go back to quilting it. Fingers crossed.
I was resting on my elbows so it got my neck. This getting old is not for wimps!!!!
I started to quilt it and decided i had better pin it really good.
But that wasn't enough , i quilted a little while and then spread it out on the bed and it looked awful...
I am thinking about taking all the quilting out and getting some more battening for it It just will not stay in place.
I have never had this much trouble with quilting one!
Maybe i will get it ripped out by next week when i can get some more battening.
I finally got all the quilting that i had to take out and ironed it but it doesn't stick on that side. It just slides around.
So now i am going to try to quilt it again! I believe this may be the reason people hate this so much!!! I have read on some blogs that they wouldn't ever use it again.
Can't throw it away now so i am trying it again .
If it does quilt awful again i may have to just use it in bags and small things. I will see because i would have to buy more battening in that case.
I wanted to finish this quilt and send it to my aunt this month.
I will let you know how it goes.
We had company this weekend. Couldn't no put their pictures on here.
I took out what i saw at first and spread it out !
Found some more!!!!
I am using that battening that is sticky on both sides, if i ever get this straighten out i am going to iron the back to just to see if that helps.
I have read in a few blogs that they tried this and hated it.
Maybe the reason i am having so much trouble with it.
So this week end i will still be ripping our stitches and hopefully get to the ironing stage before Monday.
I ironed this really good because i am using adhesive battening. Never tried it before but it's suppose to do the same thing as spray. I will let you know how i like it when i finish this quilt.
After i pressed it i put it backwards on the bed and made sure my backing was as taunt as i could get it.
Then i set my machine up to start quilting.
Now to just make up my mind how i want to quilt it. I put the walking foot on there but not sure , may change it out for a free motion foot. Have a good one
Back to working on quilts.
Ironing this one so i can quilt it.
It's for my Aunt Pauline so i must get finished so i can send it to her.
She fought Cancer when she was 85 and won, she will be 90 her next birthday.
I've had a good break haven't done mush sewing since Christmas day , just some piddling around.
I have worked on a wreath and played with my new sewing machine.
Love all the stitches it does.
Though about ordering a 1/4 foot but i am hoping my feet for my other brother machine will work on it.
Have a good one
