Two More for Quilts Beyond Borders

I finished up two more quilts to send off to Quilts Beyond Borders. I just love doing these quilts. Good for practicing long arm sewing and they go to a good cause. I learned my Voyager machine does not like to run a different and heavier thread in the bobbin. The pink quilt gave me a fit but I persevered and got it done.  I wanted to use a darker thread on the back and all I had was regular Coats & Clarks sewing thread. I used it but will not do that again! Too much shredding with the top thread and adjusting the tensions was a royal pain until I got it dialed in.





Time to sew up a couple more tops when I return to Minnesota tomorrow.
