I have renamed this weeks post from WIP to FIP. I have been working on machine quilting this quilt for a few days now. For some reason I keep getting skipped stitches. I have changed my needle, cleaned my machine and tried a new spool of thread. I tried quilting a sample I made up and my machine worked fine. The only difference between the sample and the quilt is that I did not use spray baste on the sample. So my conclusion is that something is going on with my spray basting. I have used this kind before with no problems. It's the June Taylor quilting spray they sell at JoAnns. Maybe it was just a bad bottle or I used too much. At this point I think all I can do is muddle through and keep fixing it as I go. Luckily this is just a baby quilt so it won't be quite so dreadful. UGH. I just need to get it done. The baby is due in about 3 weeks and I still have to ship it.
|The skipped stitch is hard to see on this one but is on the white part.|
|A little more obvious here. I see three in this picture.|

This week I am linking up to Lee at Freshly Pieced.
