Here's the prize:

It ends July 6th at 5pm (not sure of time zone).

While I have you here, what kind of thread do you use for Free Motion Quilting???? I changed threads the other day and I am having tiny loopy issues on the back. If I change back to the old thread, it's fine. The thread works for piecing, but not FMQ.... just wondering about the weight, brand, etc. FYI: the weights are the same and I use matching thread in the bobbin. One is Gutermann, the other is Isachord (not saying which is the one that does not work). Both are polyester.

Until next time,


Pin It!

I use Auriful Mako 50 weight for free motion. I also use Bottom Line in the bobbin which is 60 weight when not using the Mako in the bobbin. I always check the back periodically to make sure I don't get any weird looping issues. Sometimes, I just have to re-thread the machine and take out my bobbin and put it back in. Hope that helps.

Hi...I used to use Gutermann 50/3 thread, however have recently switched to Aurifil Mako 50/2 in both top and bobbin. Found this to be much better as less build up and the thread is beautiful. Also use Rasant, a Polyester thread which I believe is similar to Isachord. Also good but less shine.
