Today I broke out the Machingers
and remembered to pull the bobbin thread up through the fabric before starting

A few dark upper threads are poking through the bottom white bobbin threads...any ideas why?

Otherwise, I am quite pleased with this result!
Happy Easter everyone!

Very nice... very nice indeed! Congratulations!

Great design.
For me, the threads poke through when I stitch in the same spot or it sometimes happens when I go too fast - especially on a curve.

I am guilty of being somewhat of a speed demon, I do need to slow down. I read a suggestion of placing a block of wood behind your machine foot so that it can only go just so fast.

speed can be a culprit - both if you are too fast or if you are too slow! I think you are doing a marvelous job!

for me, those threads on the wrong side are because I pause as I change direction without slowing the machine. Consequently, I rarely use different colors or weights in the top and bottom. Your work looks GREAT! Lane
