HUM  Mine is a bar, also Judylee, that is how I ended up loading my quilt, It just seemed to make sense to me.  I thinl that all that walking around is what confused me.  Also I was so worn out from loadinf the quilt that I had to rest before quilting, hehe

LOL! I think being lazy is the mother of invention!  It made me dizzy and it really did confuse me going round that 10 foot machine.

They are boards with the pattern engraved in tyhe board.  You put the stylus in the board and follow the pattern.  Check out handiquiltyer or youtube.  When you get to youtube search for grrovy boards and videos will pop up. I love them.  Easer than a panograph and no learning curve

You and me both, even though I only have a mid-arm machine, I load the quilts on a frame.  I've just been afraid to try anything really new on a real quilt...and I'm tired of practicing.  I just don't seem to get the right rhythym; hopefully, will do better when I get my stitch regulator.

There you go...when you want to insert a link, type the name of the site, highlight it, then click on the symbol above that looks like a chain link.  Type or paste your URL into the Link line and then click on Insert.

Jeanine,

Where do you get your Legacy batting please? Maybe I'll give it a try next time.

I replied to this already but it said it needed to be approved before it posts.  I guess it didn't like my post???  Anyway, I order the batting from my APQS dealer who is local but you can find many shops that carry it or will order it for you or you can order online from several sites.  http://www.lovetoquilt.com/batting/legacy/legacy-batting.htm is just one of them I found.  I like the 80/20 with scrim.

Just ordered the flutterby groovy boards to do a king sized throw blooming nine patch when i get home.  Have been having quilting withdrawals reading everyone else's posts.

Thanks so much!!  It was one of those days where the long armed angels were with me.  I used that new "green" batting that's made from recycled water bottles.  I won a sample of it down at my local quilt shop or I probably never would have tried it.  I have to say it was awesome to work with and I really loved how the quilting came out on it.
