I decided to free motion quilt the diamond pattern that I learned from the Dot to Dot Quilting class that I took on Craftsy. Of course, the best laid plans are always the first get derailed. I used King Tut variegated thread by Superior Threads. I've used it in the past but for whatever reason I kept having skipped stitches. I tried rethreading, rewinding the bobbin, different speeds, and playing around with the tension, all to no avail. In the end only half of the diamond patterns were done free-motion. The other half were done using my walking foot. Surprisingly, I could still quilt them almost as quickly as the others (since there wasn't the bother of stopping, ripping out skipped stitches, etc.) and I couldn't even tell you which ones were done free motion and which ones weren't. I'd consider that a win.
