Skipped Stitches Fixed!

Skipped stitches can be very frustrating. You need to make sure your needle is new and is the correct type and size for your thread and project. Re-threading the machine both top and bobbin is many times the answer. Cleaning and oiling are mandatory. But after all this is said and done many times you are still having an issue.

I have made this video to show you how important the height of the foot in relation to the surface of the fabric can be. If there is too much room between the bottom of the foot and the fabric, you can get flagging which will cause skipped stitches. Flagging is where the fabric has room to move up and down with the needle.

I hope you enjoy the demonstration and it helps you to solve a skipped stitch mystery someday.

Quilt label with fusible backing for a perfect turned edge.

Here is a video that I found from last January that shows using fusible for a backing to your quilt label so that it is perfectly turned and easily applied ready to hand stitch in place. Since I just showed you how to create this type of quilt label with lettering, I was very happy to find that I had made a video showing the actual process of turning it for application to the quilt back.

Quilting on the Wild…..fabric

I have a new Q20 BERNINA sit down longarm and am loving it! Luckily I found all sorts of unfinished quilt tops from the last few years that I can happily practice and learn new skills on. Yesterday I was Quilting in the wild fabric. Great place to learn and not have it show too much. #BERNINAQ20#crosshatching
