I basted the rainbow geese today. The backing is a yellow, orange, and pink batik with a gold vine printed all over it. Yup, it's bold :) It has also been in my stash for a few years, so putting it to use feels real good.
Anyway, I was quilting away, just straight lines with the walking foot, when my thread broke. I had to rip some stitches, rethread, and started quilting again. I didn't get far before I had a nasty tangled mess in the bobbin. Rip stitches, clean bobbin case, rethread, resume quilting. Again, I only got a few stitches before my bobbin thread was in a nasty mess.
my machine has never done that before! and on the back, it looks like this
I'm not sure what is going on. If you have any suggestions, I'd love to hear them. My machine was recently serviced. I guess I'm off to mop the floor and figure out what I am going to feed the kids tonight, now that they aren't visiting their Dad as planned. I hope your national Quilting Day is going a little smoother!
