no more eyelashes
Finally, I think I have them licked. I tried just about everything but then I got on the Janome forum site and saw posts about a special bobbin case. I had heard before about adjusting the tension on the bobbin case but I didn't want to mess with that. This special bobbin case comes pre-adjusted and with a special free motion foot, it does make the back come out just right. It took a little practice and adjusting the top tension but I finally got the hang of it. This picture just shows the top of a practice piece but I am so thrilled. There wasn't any use of showing the back as the fabric was printed and the stitches don't really show.
Now I am going to order some of the clamps that keep your quilt from unrolling while you are quilting on your machine. I found them in a Nancy's Notions catalog. After I play with them, I will let you know how that turns out.
