Any Suggestions?

I put a quilt on the frame over a month ago, I had some tension problems so I stopped and walked away from it. Today I went back, hoping I'd be able to finish the quilt. No such luck.

I tried re-threading it, making sure everything is level, put in a different bobbin, new needle, reduced the presser foot level, and adjusted the tension. It's better, but still not good. Any suggestions?

I'm going to take the quilt off the frame and put practice muslin on.

I have gotten the cutting done for the 9-patches I'll cut in half for the civil war blocks. 25 dark and 25 lights. Putting these together should keep me busy for a bit.

I made these miniature silk ribbon Baltimore album block years and years go. I know I'm not going to make more so I'd like to do something these four blocks.
Any suggestions?

About Time

Remember when I finished piecing this little wall hanging. Yesterday I finally got it quilted and the binding partially on.
It only took a year...
