New Heavy Metal Border

I've been playing with a new Heavy Metal border...  

This is not in my book Heavy Metal...  so I thought I would share here how I do this.  It's really quick and fun to do!

First thing you need is a few registration marks.  I use my 1 1/2" Design with Lines template to mark my border.  You could use the 2" template if you desire.
Second:   I stitch a swirl down the first registration line.  Then back up.
 Third:  Stitch across to the next registration line. (This will either be off the edge of the border or in the ditch depending on your border.)  Repeat quilting swirls down and up each registration line until your reach the end of your border.
Fourth:  Echo your swirl back to the beginning...
This finished the design...   Super simple!  Super fun!

Bad Tension

When you are having bad tension there is something to remember...  when you've tried just about everything....  

It may not be your machine...   it may not be the thread, fabric or batting....  it may not even be the bobbin case....

It could be a bad bobbin!!!  The bobbin could be causing too much drag...  the bobbin might be over spinning and causing backlash. 

Just tried a different bobbin and all is well with the goddess of tension!!!  Throw that bad bobbin away!
