The last Maine top is quilted. Pieced by little Mary and quilted with the pantograph Raindrops but not without issues … some thread breakage in the beginning had me worried but some tweaks solved the issue. It’s the first time I’ve used Signature variegated thread in this machine and overall it did OK. I did have some tension issues at one point too but found a lint booger in my bobbin case and that seems to have been the issue.
Worst of all … I punched the needle through the side of my finger when I was basting the top. Yes, another klutzy accident and I now have bandaids on two of my left hand fingers. I guess I’m lucky it wasn’t the index finger that’s still healing from being sliced with the rotary cutter. So what’s the reason I’m so accident prone all the sudden? I think it’s related to my sleep problems. I’m thankful that it caught the fleshy side of my finger and didn’t go through the nail!
