    If you read my facebook page yesterday, you knew I was having a problem with a quilt.  Not too often does something stump me, but this one did.  The client sent fleece to use as the backing, but when I tried to quilt through the white section of the quilt the black backing fabric came up through.
I called the client and a few options were discussed.  None of those worked.  I thought maybe using black thread on the white might be OK, but it wasn't. 
    You know how you know there is a solution but can't quite put your finger on it?  That is how I felt.  I then wondered if I loaded it with the back facing me if that would eliminate the problem.  It did, but then there was a severe tension issue.  Finally I gave up for the night at 9:00 p.m.

    Come morning after a great night's rest I KNEW I would be able to finish this quilt.  Sure enough, tightening the tension fixed the issue, no more pokies through the white fabric and I was able to get it shipped today.
    I am so honored to quilt for some amazing artists.  Lynda is one such artist.  This quilt was made from a photo of one of their dogs. 

    Thank You Lynda for trusting me with such a beautiful piece of artwork!
