Well, today I am unpicking the entire first row of my quilt. Tension. Need I say more. I have been working with this wonderful old machine and in practice it began, finally, too work just right. I happily, and I thought, Beautifully quilted the entire first row of skateboards then the border. I cheerfully started rolling it to the next section and this is what I saw. .. Can you see all the loops? When I investigated the tension spring broke so I have had to order a new one and now need to learn to install it. So now the seam ripper and I are becoming goods friends. Hopefully the next blog will have it all done and ready to bind!
