I have had to put my string quilt making on hold for a bit while I work on machine quilting a quilt top I made a while back. Mike and I have finally painted the livingroom and I need something for the wall so I decided to try my hand at free-motion quilting. We are hosting a wedding shower in a week and we needed a freshening. I had lots of troubles with thread breakage and needle breakage and finally, with help from a quilting expert, I found my way. As I was finishing up the borders, for whatever reason, my thumb went near the needle....too near!!. When the needle hit my gloved hand (Machingers) it penetrated a bit and then broke. Could have been worse if I wasnt wearing the gloves with the rubber tips. Close call!!
