If that a Voyager machine ?? And i see the box under the table matches the box I have here....LOL
what dies do you have?? Looks good..so nice & straight & tight...what batting do you use??
Hi Susan!Yes that is my voyager/hinterberg stretch setup. I bought it used on craigslist last year! What a find for me! I've only been sewing with it since this past summer. I think I want to invest in the SLR, I'm getting frustrated with some of the patterns I want to learn and not having the SLR is making it difficult! The Accuquilt Go was my Christmas present to me this year. The only die I have right now (other than the one it came with) is the 2.5 inch strip die. That one seemd to be the one I would use most. I've been using warm and natural 80/20 most of the time. I like the way it makes the quilt feel after a number of washings, really soft and supple! I've purchase heirloom, but I have not yet used it. My longarmer friend loves it! What do you like to use? I have found that 'so fine' thread works beautifully in the machine, I have not tried metallics yet,
I love your quilts. They are all very pretty. I also love the walls in your home.....gorgeous. I really like Quilter's Dream batting. It is my favorite....feels almost like a really nice fleece when it comes out of the package. Most of what I have used has been their 100% cotton and it works up so nicely. I have used the Warm and Natural but I like Quilter's Dream even better.
As far as dies.. I have the 3" triangles..& the original one... I wish you could use Joanns coupons on them & I would have alot more...I do not know if I will get any of the strips.but a few on my list to get are Blazing Stars, Circles, Hearts, Funky Flowers & Triangles in 3" Square.
I buy warm & natural 80/20 108" by the bolt of 40 yards... I have a tax ID # & can get it wholesale from CA..dropped shipped to my house...My favorite threads to use have been the variegated ones..they add so much to a quilt.
Right now I am using my Bernina ( 440) with the stitch regulator on an Inspira Frame. I have found many ways to use it even though I have only about 8'"of quilting room. But sometime this year I will upgrade to an HQ 16 or Avante 18 and the Studio frame. I like the Voyager too.
I have a very small quilting business & it is growing...I do not advertise..just references....you know how that works..they just keep coming back for more. I did over 50 quilts last year.
With all the show & tell of My sewing room/studio.. it has led me to rearrange & clean the sewing room...I have created a mess.. but have found alot of things that i wonder why I put it there moments occur. I am on day 4 of this process.. kinda like moving day.. chos before the calm.
Pretty quilts Magz.
WOW the gallery is growing with so many beautiful things! Awesome!
