Struggles

I'm struggling with the current quilt on the machine. I found the perfect pink thread in my drawer, but it isn't playing nicely with my machine and I keep getting loopies on the back. Very inconsistently and it's driving me CRAZY!!! I really hate quilting when things like this happen. I love it when everything works nicely together.

So the dilema, take all the current stitching out and start over w/a new thread? Or keep going and fix the loopies after all is quilted?

Here's Hoping your quilting is going much smoother!
