My favorite part of quitling is the background stuff. I’d like it a lot more if my thread didn’t constantly snap for no apparent reason, but what am I gonna do about that? Nothing, that’s what because I have no idea what’s causing it and everyone yells at me when I ask a question so here’s some pretty pictures to look at.

    Oh Adam … it just gets more beautiful everytime you touch it.

  2. Gorgeous background quilting, Adam!
    Try a new needle and see if that helps your thread breakage.

    This is going to be absolutely beautiful. I love watching you create. You are such a talented young man!

    Love your background quilting.

    No suggestions that I’m sure you haven’t already thought of on the thread breakage. I was having the same problem yesterday and loosened my upper tension and it took care of the problem. I also slowed down a bit so don’t know which solved the problem.

    Adam it looks great I just love your work!
    I also have your setup last night my thread was breaking too! so did some searching and this is what I did someone said to turn the needle eye just a little to the right insted of staight & dont put it threw the bottom sliver thing before needle. After that I was ok (I was using Sofine on top and prewound bobbins on bottom and size 16 needle) Keep up the beautiful work!!

    wow. I could say all the things I am thinking but that might make you think I am worshipping you……Ok I am worshipping your skills. Wanna share? I wish I could help with the thread breakage. i am complete idiot when things happen here. I just stop pray and then do a little prayer dance and move on.

    So sorry about your thread breakage. I know how frustrating that is…btw those little round things in your beautiful background look suspiciously pebble-like…I am sure I must be mistaken…It is fabulous, btw!

    I had the thread breaking happening this weekend too. I was using Connecting Threads Essential thread. I finally changed my needle to a #16 topstitching needled and no more breaking. I guess the #12 was too small and I didn’t have any #14. Your quilting is wonderful!
