Skinning Another Quilt...

I finally found time to load my zigzag quilt.  I was so enthusiastic to do this one.  Why is it that I have to skin or frog (or whatever you call it) SO much?  I thought I would be okay with using navy thread in the bobbin, but I just don't like it.  Every little bobble stands out, and of course I am experiencing more bobbles than normal!   Ugh!  I know I should do some practice stitching when I am so boldly using contrasting threads on the backing fabric. 

It looks nice from the front...

 This is not going to be fun to do...
 I have two entire zags to skin!!
How about you?  How often do you have to do this?  Maybe it is just me?/

you are not alone. I don't like high contrast, every once in a while I forget this and have to pick out-and I think WHY do I do this to myself! Some comfort zones are better left alone (for me anyway!)

Me too, nearly at every quilt on my machine there is at least one little part I have to pick out. Mostly for a mistake or not excactly sewn. Thats part of a longarm quilting business ;-)
