A new long arm quilting experience

                              This was the start of a new long-arm quilting experience at my friend Diana’s. custodia iphone 7 donna It was a little tricky getting the quilt loaded on, such a steep learning curve for me. custodia iphone 6 elephant I had to look at an internet you tube to see how to load a quilt on.

It was fine for 2/3 of the way, then it said: NO MORE! After at least a half hour of frustration, I finally gave in and changed the top thread.

Now, I have to get back to my upholstery so I can move on to other projects. custodia apple silicone iphone 6 The one above only had to wait 34 years for completion.
