That’s right I pushed through all the problems and the Tumbler picnic quilt is ready for binding!! Finally in order to get this quilt done without skipping stitches I had to take the needle out and clean off the adhesive after every two rows that I quilted. I did this with a speck of machine oil that was suggested to me and rubbing it on a cloth. Everything today was done without the walking foot also. I really think it was a combination of the walking foot bar sticking (the part over the screw that holds in the needle) and the adhesive sticking to the needle. I did trade out a size 11 needle for a size 16. I do not know if that helped. Maybe I put way too much spray adhesive on the quilt? I am not experienced with that stuff.
this quilt has taken me one week to make from start to getting the quilting done. It is 45 by 58 inches – now to get the binding on it – but you know what – I’m going to wait for tomorrow to do that
