SO, here's the ugly truth... I have been SWEARING at my long arm! I CANNOT get the tension right! I get it! I REALLY do! eyelashes = top tension to loose or bobbin to tight!! Well I CAN'T tighten the top any more! I have had to loosen it because it was TOO tight! thread breaking!! So I loosened the screw on the bobbin!! I CAN NOT loosen it any further! And I am STILL getting eyelashes!! I'm just gonna show ya! Brace yourselves...
                                                                                                                                         So I didn't change ANYTHING between these 3 photos! Same Bobbin same stitching! And yet about 1\3 of the stitching has eyelashes! IN THE MIDDLE of the rest of the stuff! I just don't get it! I am pretty steady with my stitching. I do use a stitch regulator and not a constant speed so in theory even if I am not even it SHOULD keep up with me! (believe me when I say I am NOT a quick stitcher! LOL)
No eyelashes???
This quilt is for a little guy and I did throw in a snake a snail and a puppy dog tail! These pics are from the back of the quilt. The from is white so they are not very noticeable from the front! But that was what I wanted! It is all together possible that his name is ALSO on the quilt! But since he is not yet here I can't really share that part!! I am going to leave the quilting eyelashes and all! (Her daughter after all has the first quilt I EVER fully finished) 

Eat Play Sleep Repeat 
The pattern is Baby Life Quilt from Moda Bake shop I have had this one on my must do list for some time! I did have to alter it because I only had a yard of the background. So I made the outer border orange with white polka dots! I hope to get this bound and washed up in the next day or two!  
Happy stitching!
I haven't decided yet what to bind it with... I will probably go with blue! OH, I have more polka dot binding from my last quilt still!! That would work nicely!!

 OK friends! Wish me luck!! Have a GREAT day!!

  1. I don't have a long arm so I'm no help with your tension problems. Hope you got it fixed. I have also made that baby quilt. It is so simple yet so cute!
