The design was based on a quilt by the creative Kathie Holland from Inspired by Antique Quilts.
" I get by with a little help from my friends."
Thank you for the information and general well wishes! It's just pulled it off the frame, wow! Some lessons are hard learned....
I just kept tweakin', cleaning, oiling it and re-threading. Oh, and walking away when I felt it was getting the best of me, lol.
I think the problem is a combination of things. I took the bobbin thread out, and changed it. I think one bobbin was not well balanced, so that one is pitched from sewing.
The top tension is about as loose as it can be, but I hit on the correct setting to where the stitches looked good, and the thread quit breaking. Hurray!!
But we'll say it's a design call~
Edited to add: My first 3 inch house!
Happy to be quilting again!
