Oct 21: Pattern selected.
Oct 28: Programming, prepping, loading.
Oct 29: Trimming threads as I press the top. Re-visited the density & ended up exactly where I started. Such an open pattern is not as dense as the "density factor" indicates. The snow flakes are one thing but the fat little snowman belly is another. Loaded, basted & ready to quilt.
Oct 30: Quilting. Oops! Machine problems when bobbin ran out & thread got caught inside the machine creating a horrific jam. I've cleared the jam but still having what I hope is a minor problem. Will call APQS in the morning for help.
Oct 31: Heard from APQS but it was at 5 PM. We sorted out in just a few minutes that the drive belt needs replacing. It was worn just a tad too much from the jam. A new one is on the way from Iowa.
Nov 04: The belt is here & the machine is fixed. Back in business.
Nov 05: Let's quilt! Quilted.
Nov 06: Binding is attached.
Nov 08: Bound
Nov 09: Shipped to Pete
