Blog readers often send me quilt tops. I machine quilt them and bind them. Then they are sent off to a worthy charity. This is one of those….
Today I have a charity quilt on the frame. I don’t even have the slightest clue who sent this one to me. I feel bad about that. Typically I have an educated guess…not this time. If you’re the person who donated, please drop a comment in the comment section so I can give you proper credit. (..could it be Linda?)
The piecing on this is wonderful…I can’t wait to show you the whole quilt because it’s a real beauty.
But for now, I am stuck right here with ripping out.
I had changed the bobbin when it ran out and then…UGH. Naughty me didn’t check the thread tension on the back with the new bobbin in. BAD IDEA! The tension was bad and that left me ripping.
I thought about just going to bed and dealing with it the next day but I decided against that and just dealt with it. I’ll be back at soon and once I’m finished I’ll get it bound and show you the whole quilt…I love it!

I have some quilt tops I would like to donate to you as charity quilts. Where should I send them.
Jo, it looks beautiful! I know the lucky person who receives it will love it, too!
I also hate frogging quilting!! I have a muslin sandwich that I attach with a kitchen knife magnet to my dead bar to test my tension after each bobbin change…really saves on frogging!!! It’s going to be a beautiful quilt when you are finished with it!
Not this Linda. I hate ripping out machine quilting….the stitches go in so fast and out so slow. I’m glad my machine behaves itself most of the time.
