I was working on a Moda Bake Shop project this weekend and as I was sewing I encountered a really great tip. Sometimes until you actually run into an issue, it's hard to think of those tips! :)
Do you ever find yourself sewing along and when you look at your seams, you see skipped stitches? like this...

You re-thread your machine, check your bobbin and even re-thread that, but nothing works. You think to yourself, "oh great! All this work and my quilt is going to fall apart!".
I'm here to tell you the solution is "usually" really as simple as changing your needle! Yep! Sometimes, unbeknownst to you, your needle gets bent and doesn't like to play nice, so this is its way of telling you he needs to be replaced!
So switch out that pesky needle and put in a fresh one and start again. Hopefully you will now have pretty stitches like this...
Don't you just love when bad things happen to me so I can teach you how to prevent them? LOL!
