My Happy Dance by Sindir
Well, my first ever quilt is done!!! My binding looks pretty good in the front, but if you turn it over it's pretty uneven. The stitching leaves something to be desired. I machine stitched the front half and then turned it and finished it by hand. I'm sure I'll get better at that as I...

Penny wise and pound foolish by frood
Bummer about the thread. Are you continuing on with it, or switching to something else? Are you sure it's the thread causing the breakage, and not something else to do with FM quilting? I don't know what to suggest, as I'm still a beginner at that...
