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!

Fullness

Or otherwise what we longarm quilters call "wavy border"...  Every once in awhile as a quilter for hire you will receive a quilt that has a little bit of fullness and you have to work it in as to get no puckers while you quilt.

A few months back I received a set of tools from Groovy Gal Quilts...  I watched their videos and thought to myself that they could come in handy.  I promptly put them away and totally forgot about them...   bad me!

So I'm working on this friendly little quilt when something reminded me I had these tools.  Great time to give them a test run...


Once I rolled the quilt top I pinned down the border like I normally do...


Then I steamed it really well and did my basting along the edge and my stitch in the ditch to keep everything in place...


Watched the Platter Tool video one more time, and place the tool around my hopping foot...


Then quilted!!!  I was concerned that it would push all the fullness to the center of the border, it did not!!!  The fullness was laid down and NO Puckers!!!


I was very impressed!!!

So then I decided to do a video so you could see how it worked...  This is with one of the smaller Circle Tools.  I believe it may be my new best friend!!!


I'm not affiliated with Groovy Gal Quilts...  Just impressed with their tools!!!!
