I love it, you give me inspiration as I too have these designs. For metallic thread you have to have the thread come off the spool straight from the sides. You can't have the thread come from the top of the spool, it causes it to coil, then it tangles and knots, falls around the spool pin, breaks, etc. Then you have to reduce the top tension a lot! watch and see the stitch out and make sure you stop short of loops on the bottom. You will notice a big difference.
This is a great idea for a valance for my kitchen for Christmas, I keep eyeing the quilt in the instructions and saying to myself....quilt...what else could I do?
I made a top w/PMK and did metallic embroidery on it...my sister took it, nothing to show for it.
