I spent the last week fighting on and off with my free motion quilting. The Thread. Keeps. Breaking. ARGH!!! I "mostly" fixed the problem by replacing my needle with one that has a larger eye. However, after a casual perusal of online message boards, I believe the problem may be the quality of thread. I'm using Coats & Clark and seems that I'm not the only one with problems. I think I'll pick up some Sulky invisible thread for next time and hope that solves my little problem. I'm also hoping it will, well, be invisible because my latest quilting venture displayed another issue - I quilted white thread on a dark fabric. And every single mistake shows glaringly.
