My second WIP Wednesday. This week I have been working on boxers:
For some reason, the brown thread (from Connecting Threads, on a plastic spool) is making my machine glitch up something terrible: breaking threads, grinding noises, unable to sew at speed AT ALL.
It's the backing for this quilt, my mother-in-law's Japanese Lanterns, that has been the hobgoblin on my back and the source of a lot of quilt guilt for almost 2 years.
this tutorial for Tertia. Her Down syndrome means pants that fit her around the waist need about 10" lopped off the bottom, so capris are pretty much what I buy for her. Unless I find some regular jeans at the thrift store, like these and the second pair I'll do next week. I like the ability to dress up the hems simply, and Quarta can wear them as real capris after Tertia's finished with them. The pink thread, also on a cardboard spool, is also Star brand but not quite as glitch-free as the white. All of the threads are giving me trouble in the bobbin winder.
The Japanese lantern quilt is looking great! Good luck with the quilting!
Sorry you're having thread issues. Machines are so temperamental. Your Japanese lantern quilt is very pretty!
The Japanese Lanterns is going to look so pretty! Sorry no suggestions on the quilting. Thanks for using my tutorial. I hope it comes out for you. :o)
