I have done whole quilts with metallic thread with no problem at all. The previous cushion I showed in the last post presented no difficulty. And then suddenly, the next day it all goes wrong. I have tweaked the tension bottom and top, put in a new needle, changed the size of the needle, re threaded the machine, changed the bobbin thread, taken the race apart and cleaned it... all to no avail.
I can honestly say I did not enjoy quilting this. And I almost think that this design would have looked better with no quilting. However, since I FMQ the first cushion it needed to match.
I did say in the last post that I would try quilting in red. My brother-in-law fell in love with the cushions and decided he would like them and wanted the quilting in silver.
I have another 3 to go if I can ever sort out the thread problems. Any ideas gratefully received!!
