The good news is the major procrastinator in me finally got my backing fabric and pieced the backing together for my quilt.
The bad news is that the issues I have been having with my machine (and thought I had either resolved or were able to work around) are still on-going. I just realized as I was testing my tension on a scrap quilt sandwich that it's skipping stitches and I can't quilt with it.
The ugly truth is I'm not sure when I'll have the next post up. I'm working on figuring a way to do it without actually having mine quilted.
Sorry it's been so long between posts already, I'll post the next step as soon as I can. I promise!
Thanks for being so patient. :)
