After 5 minutes, 10 minutes, an hour????
It would depend on the quilt. I’d spend more time on a quilt I was making for someone else. Ten minutes seems reasonable. An Hour? No way. I’d be looking for different threads or a different needle if I couldn’t get it adjusted within ten minutes or so.
Oh…it really was just fine after the first few moments but I was having so much fun!!!! Hehehehe……………………………
catpatches I am with you, 10 minutes maximum. As I have more than one machine if I couldn’t get things right on one after 10 minutes I would be using one of the other machines. Quilting for other people I would spend a whole 10 minutes but if it was for me, 5 minutes then change machines. My ancient Frister+Rossmann holds the tensions better than the brand new F+R that I bought last year. I find it very unstable. The tension goes out while I am in the middle of FMQ without any warning so no amount of testing is going to correct that fault. 😦
You really are correct………but when you are having a great time….the moments “fly by”!!!!! Hugs………………….
made me laugh… I think you just enjoy playing, and you *call* it testing… 😉
Oh, sweet Melanie!!!! You DO know me (too?) well!!!!! LOL!!!!!
Funny you should write this…. I have been working on tension all morning and early afternoon-about 4 hours. Changed machines even. Grrr.
Eooo……..icky…… Had an issue a few days back (with my Juki) while using thread I’ve used many times before….absolutely no clue what the problem was. At the moment I’ve got Glide on the machine and it’s like a “hot knife through butter”!!! I guess that’s why my 5 min. turned into more than 1 hr. of total FUN!!!!! I do hope your problem goes away like mine did!!!!!!!!
see and this is what I call bonus practice…
Precisely!!!!!!! Interesting how these kinds of minutes pass so quickly when others don’t!!!!! LOL!!!!!
At some point, you’ve moved from testing to frolicking! 😉
FMQ frolicking…….NAILED IT!!!!!!!!!!!! 😀
You’re home! I hope you had a great trip.
Looks like you were having way to much fun, ha ha!
One thing led to another…..etc…..etc…LOL!
