Dirty Work

When the tension is not right on our machines, and all else fails, we know its time to get dirty! Too much machine quilting = string caught in gears. If you can’t tell from the picture, there are greasy black strings caught around the end of the thread takeup. We have to untangle them string by string. Ugg…   


Messy. Messy. Messy.  Thank goodness for soap. Hopefully our machines are working so we can get back to sewing. We probably work them too hard. Poor machines. They are taking a rest right now… a VERY short one :)

Quilting isn’t all dirt and grease, there are a lot of pretty things involved this bright stack of fabrics we pulled out of our never-ending stash.  Yes, quilting is definitely “Pretty Work.”
