I guess it's the quilt top?

Remember last week, when I breezed through quilting a small quilt with nary a snag?

Well, this week, I am wrestling with my fusible applique quilt from the Faustino workshop, and I've got breaking threads every few minutes and it's driving me NUTS. There are no photos as yet, it will have to wait until the quilt's finished. The only difference is that the entire quilt top is backed with fusible web, and I'm guessing that's what's giving me the trouble. I switched to a larger topstitch needle, and that didn't help at all.

To get away from the machine for a bit and calm down,  I did some doodling last night. I have a picutre of that, at least.

  1. Please feel free to disregard.... but I feel your pain here... Im thinking a more heavy duty needle might be required as a first try. Im sure you have more experience in this than me... but in case it helps... I found this needle chart
    Love the doodle.... my girl has got into Zentangles recently.
