  1. So many threads! The Bear quilt is so much quilter than it was when you started!

    I hope the cutting party goes well. Bonus points for photos of stacks of cut fabric! My Linus should be doing something similar soon.

    The crochet hook cracks me up. I’m so glad it’s working for you!

    Darn cracked track is so frustrating. Boo.


  2. A cracked track doesn’t sound good! Can you get just a new track at a good price?
    I’m not sure why I just enjoy seeing progress on that bear!!! Maybe because I’m so impressed by your dedication to it (even if that includes a lot of down time). You are GOING to finish that, and I just admire your commitment.
    Enjoy your cutting party and have a great week.


    1. I got the frame used and I have already replaced the speed control (not that it helped) and the 10 ft track, and replaced screws and I just refuse to throw any more money at a frame I don’t plan to keep.

      Still burying threads. Oi. Must finish in the morning so I can start with the binding.


      1. I understand not wanting to spend money on something, and then I get to a point where something has to give. Hopefully you can keep it working for you or be able to replace it when you have to. There are lots of reasonably priced used frames on the market.


  3. Glad you are feeling better. Sorry to hear about the crack in the track. I’m guessing you can replace it but it may not be worth the cost to you. The mark up on replacement parts can be fairly ridiculous.

    Looking forward to seeing the Bear quilt photos. It’s been a labor of love to get it done.

    Happy Crafting


    1. I am glad to be feeling better and not running like a faucet.

      I already had to buy a 10 ft track because it didn’t come with it, and replace the speed control, which still doesn’t really work the way it should, that I am frankly done with this thing. If i didn’t love how easy it was to at least do edge to edge meander with it to quickly finish a quilt I would get rid of the frame altogether. I am thinking about what I am going to do. At least I bought the pfaff out of this whole experiment. It’s a really good machine, and quilting the bear on it was quite fun.


    1. Feeling much better now, thanks! STILL burying threads. OMG. As soon as I’m done with my coffee and breakfast this morning I’m going to go see if I can finish before I go to work.


  4. Glad to see that you’re feeling better and I’m also happy to hear that the flashlight/crochet hook worked out. That stinks about the crack in your track 😦 it’s never fun when something we’re so excited for doesn’t work out as expected.


    1. Sadly that frame has been a frustration from beginning to end.I already replaced the 10 ft track, I’m not sure if I want to throw any more money at it.

      I am feeling better thanks!


  5. Can’t wait to see your finished bears quilt… it’ll be interesting to see how you’ve quilted it.

    Too bad about the 5′ track for your quilting frame… that has been so many issues after issues for you, hasn’t it? Frustrating.


    1. I quilted the crap out of that bear, lol. Working on the frame issue. May have a solution in the works. We shall see. Meanwhile I’ve been doing some rearranging of machines. I will wit to talk about it in my video so that I have something to talk about lol
