My Own Limits

I finally decided on how to quilt the quilt that has had me stymied for weeks. I start...I have a new needle and good quality metallic thread...and the blasted thread keeps breaking! So far, no rhyme or reason to it!!!
Time to take a break and read up on causes. Of course I have too much done to rip it out and try again. Of course I have a design that cannot be switched to another color. It is use this thread or trash the whole thing.
If is another learning curve. :D

You didn't mention what type of needle you're using, but try a top stitch needle (size 90). Also, do you have a stand alone thread stand? If so use it and let the thread travel a bit to the machine so it has time to relax.
