Know what this is?

This is what makes a quilter say bad words! lol I just spent the last two hours ripping out three rows of quilted circles because the back of the stitching looked like this! Click on the picture for a closeup that'll make you cry.
I know, I know. Why didn't I check the back of my work before I got so far? Beats me. I've put off quilting this little quilt for about a week now. Maybe I should've put it off for another week! Alright, so now it's all un-sew-ed, er, un-sewn and I will change the needle on my Bernina. I love quilting on my Bernie in the dining room since I have a tilted extension table that supports quilts nicely. My Janome quilts nicely, too, but right now I have it sitting on a table with too much junk around it. I can't quilt when I'm closed in.

Dad and I made our trip to Lubbock and back without incident, thank You, Lord. His legs are healing very well, but slowly. He doesn't sleep well the night before we go to Lubbock so he slept all the way there. He felt better on the way home so he was awake on the trip back. Maybe the howling wind that kept threatening to blow us over kept his eyes wide open!

So, it's 9 p.m. and the question is, should I try quilting again or work on some crochet? I'll decide in a minute..

Okay Veronica I have had stitches that look like that too but being new to sewing don't know what the cause is..Can you help??

Ooooooh! I've had that happen recently and it's very frustrating. Atleast it's quick to un-pick.
I walk away for a while and come back and re-thread everything. That sometimes helps.
