Fold and Stitch Wreath

I had to give this pattern a try after seeing it so much on facebook. It's a fun one to do, but I did have trouble when stitching the squares together, which involved stitching through two layers of the foam used in the squares and 4 layers of fabric. My machine kept skipping stitches. I tried different weights of thread, machine quilting needles and a titanium regular needle....nothing seemed to work. So I just sewed the seam twice in an attempt to fill in the skips. Has anyone else made these and run into a similar problem?

WOW! What a beautiful table piece, or whatever it is called. I can see why you had so much trouble with all the thicknesses. I doubt that my machine could manage that. I would have had to resort to hand stitching. Great job!

I am working through making it and just got to sewing the two completed pieces together. My Bernina 165 is able to sew through but I doubt most machines could. I think it is quite labor intensive and expensive to make and will probably not do another. However, I am determined to finish the wreath having come this far.
