My Quilting Machine

I was lucky enough to get a machine quilter this year. I've been having alot of fun - except for the tension problem. You'd think all I need to do is load a quilt and quilt. Wrong - every quilt so far I have to play with the tension. Still fun though, just wish I had more time and didn't have to go to work every day.

Hi, Barb sent me over :)

Rotten day jobs ruin all the fun lol. I guess without them we wouldn't be able to afford some good ole retail therapy when we need it.

Wonderful job, and they do not look like beginner work either. As far as tension, sometimes it's the weather (cotton tends to swell with humidity), sometimes it's the quilt (too tight? too loose? weird fabric? batting?), sometimes it's the machine. Not only do I _test_ tension every quilt, I _check_ tension every roll-up. Keep up the very good work!
