Day six was very stiff at first with the small circular feathers to start; then better...practiced going left with l's and e's which, by the end was quite smooth. This would be the perfect warm-up to do for 20 minutes before beginning a quilt. Harriet Hargrave recommends a 20 minute warm-up on a practice piece before beginning the actual quilt. That seems like a solid recommendation.

The machine stopped part way through because the bobbin thread had a small knot! This was the first time I'd ever had that experience.
The Aerofil Madeira used yesterday flowed more smoothly for quilting; whereas the Prescenia 60/3 is just wonderful for piecing.
Above is where the bobbin started acting up.
The following youtube video is one of the most uplifting stories I've ever heard before...it's about a quilter from Texas who is blind, but that doesn't stop her! I found it while blog hopping today. Enjoy!
