There's one thing I teach my students and that's if you are going to run an experiment, only change one variable at a time. When trying to figure out what was wrong with my quilting machine and the Y encoder, I messed with two variables at once, the o rings and the weight. Wouldn't you know, the thing still gave me fits. So, I remembered the lessons I taught my students and went back to the old o rings and kept the weight. Sure enough, problem solved. There just needed to be a bit more pressure on the roller to keep the encoder so it could read where it was on the axis. Once I got that figured out, quilting this beauty was quick.
I wish this was for a happier occasion, but unfortunately it is for a teen with cancer. Those quilts are never fun to make and give, but I know the girl will love it.
I'm almost done with my quilt which uses the same fabrics. Mine is going to be bigger. I'm excited to actually get to keep a quilt I'm making.
