The corner of my marred batting has been repaired, #6 UFO of the month has been pin basted, and quilting is well under way. I just stitched in the ditch with my walking foot all the horizontal and vertical seams, and a few diagonal lines.
Now I am enjoying some free motion swirls in the border. (With this swirly border fabric, I couldn't possibly quilt anything but swirls.)
The problem is the tension.
I'm using a bright green thread on the top and a white thread in the bobbin, and just when I've got everything running smoothly, I whip around a swirl and the tension gets loose on the bottom.
Can you see what I mean?
I fiddled around with the tension for a while, and then I chastised myself for quilting too fast.
Now I am accepting that I can't have good tension and fast quilting...I have to pick one or the other.
Guess which one I picked?!?
