It seemed like a good idea at the time


Sometimes an idea seems really fabulous until you get to the
application part.

Rolling two different quilt tops onto same backing

With two smallish quilt tops and a piece of wide backing
already loaded, I decided to load up both small quilt top side by side. Rather
than cut a large batting down, I used strips of batting left-over from other
projects and spray basted the batting on the tops. Then I pinned on the tops,
wound a bunch of bobbins and began quilting.

First problem: quilts required different colored thread. Did
I really want to rethread every five minutes?

I decided No—and proceeded to work on the first top. It is
really hard to roll a top when the other side is not being quilted AND the
batting is a totally different thickness.

plastic sheet Xray divider to smooth way over batting

What is a good idea is a piece of x-ray divider to allow the
foot to traverse the batting on the sides AND that reminder to lower the
presser foot before sewing.
