A customer wanted me to use Aurifil 50 white thread. I have not used it before. My primary thread is So Fine 50 (polyester). I am using the aurifil on top and bottom.
I finished ~1/2 of the quilt - E2E panto with curvy feathers. My thread broke and I thought I was out of bobbin. However, bobbin ~1/3 yet. I cleaned out bobbin area and checked for lint in case. I rethreaded the top. Quilted 10 inches and top broke. redid it all again. Finished about 20 inches and top broke again. I need to finish this quilt by Sat and have about 5 passes yet to go but getting frustrated.
Because it is cotton, do you think there is lint buildup in the tension discs? What needle should I be using? I am using a 16 as I do with my 50 wt polyester. Any help would be appreciated.
