I've found the time to start quilting the awesome quilt I previously told you about.
Frustration comes with a new tension problem with my Tin Lizzie. Just when I get one thing working just right, something else goes wrong. At first I thought it was just me, but I spoke to another long arm quilter, and she is an expert. She has 2 different long arms, none of which are a Tin Lizzie.
Her advise was to keep at it. It took her, and most other long arm quilters, 3 years to work out all the bugs from tension and imperfect stitches.
The strange thing about my long arm, it will work beautifully for 2 or 3 quilts, no problems and perfect stitches. Then boom out of nowhere it decides to give me imperfect stitches and a huge headache.
The quilt I am doing is so special, and I am doing a custom stitching to bring out the beauty of it. Which means, when I start to remove stitches, I have an enormous job ahead, with all the extra detail stitches used in customizing.
Do I sound like I am belly aching? Well you are right. Time to vent a little, so I can get it off my chest and go to bed.
So far the venting hasn't helped and I am still too keyed up to sleep.
Enough of this. If anyone is interested in checking out the new quilt guild, there is a website you can look at: http://www.friendshipstars.com/. I am already looking forward to the next meeting.
If you have trouble finding their website, you can find it on My Blog List.
