|Dutch Windmill quilt in progress.|
So, the black thread.... Part of the reason it took five hours is that the flippin' black thread kept breaking every 5 inches or so. We finally took it off the long-arm and used a different brand (King Tut) which then worked beautifully. I honestly am never going to machine quilt with something other than King Tut ever again. I can't even describe how frustrating it is to have the darned thread continually break when you are getting into that quilting groove.
The binding will have to wait. I have potatoes, leeks, scallions, and prosciutto in the house which means that soup needs to be made.
