From some of the leftover scraps I fused a small quiltlet to test the quilting. I decided to use 2 threads in a needle and as I haven´t done that too often before, didn´t want to go without some exercise.
And here is the problem - the bobbin thread comes up. I changed tension in every possible way and changed needles but nothing really helped. It isn´t visible on the photo, but I can see it and that is the problem. Any suggestions? I really like the 2 threads going together cause they look like catching the sunlight, but how can I get the bobbin thread to stay beneath the fabric????
...... a few hours and some good ideas later - it works!
I chose another fabric for the backside and a real real real thick thread in the bobbin.
So glad I did this test-piece. Will finish it tomorrow and then start with the large piece on tuesday. DH will be away on a business trip til thursday, so the dining table is mine and that´s where I prefer to quilt large pieces.
