So glad you've figured it out. We were hoping it was not a machine timing
problem. Now, you must resort to some totally ridiculous assistance to get
you through this. Can you put the SM on a big table so you have support on
the left and also to the back? Can you put your ironing board anywhere,
perhaps to your left before the cover approaches the table? Many times,
I've had a mad attack of wanting to back a quilt with a sheet of poly-cotton
and it's done okay, and I almost always use the green-band quilt needles.
It does look wonderful to turn back the quilt to matching bed linens.
Remember to breathe and take lots of breaks. Oops. Poor choice of words.
