|Quilted by yours truly! This is the good side if you can't tell.|
But alas, while I was practicing, I noticed that my machine was occasionally doing odd things on the back of my quilt - it would leave little 1 millimeter loops here and there, like it hadn't quite gotten the opportunity to pull tight on the bobbin for that stitch. Strange, right?
As quilters go, I am far from a perfectionist. Mostly so far I have made quilts for kids, and as a general rule I subscribe to the idea that if you can't see it from more than 3 feet away, and it's not big enough for the batting to escape en masse, then it is not a problem. But in this particular case, the little loops failed a "feel" test - you could tell they were there when you ran your hand over the back of the quilt, and they didn't feel good when you rubbed them. Let's just say appearances are one thing, but in my house you don't mess with the cuddliness!
