OK, I'm coming into this discussion just a little late.  I don't have time to read all the posts out here in quilt land, but now and then I find something new. 

I have been quilting on a Tin Lizzie 18 for 2 1/2 years.  Before that I had a Juki TL98Q on a Gracie frame for about a year.   I previously had an embroidery business, so even though I do not do quilting as a business, I am familiar with the business end of things.  I cannot even begin to tell you how many quilts I have done on my Tin Lizzie... probably more than 100.  My husband often observes as I quilt and makes assessments on how I can do things easier and/or better.  He was the one that decided I needed a machine with a larger capacity.  I was able to sell my Juki/Grace setup, but I really hated giving up my TL98, so I bought a new TL98 to have on hand.  It is a real workhorse.  My Tin Lizzie is also quite a workhorse... no bells and whistles.. just good solid machine that can do just about anything I want it to.  I do alot of pantographs, but I held onto the design boards that I bought for my Juki setup and my husband added a stylus attachment to my Lizzie so I could still use those boards.  I do alot of meandering, but have worked with rulers, stencils and templates.  I've tried lots of different techniques, but my favorite one is pantographs because I can sit down and roll behind my machine.  Anything to get off my feet.

Just wanted to jump in here and add some of my info.  I am sure there is alot to learn from all the experience out here.

Charlotte Casey:

I have bought a few at various places, but as a rule I find an element in the design of the quilt fabric or a theme and I create my own.  We have a CAD cutter left over from our graphic design days and we can take the blade out and put in a pen and then we can draw our own pantographs.

Did a quilt for a customer Friday.  This was her first quilt made for her son who goes to ISU.  I think she is already getting hooked on quilting so I look for her to have more quilts in the future!

Hi RamonaC,

That really great quilt is by Jeanine, not me!  I can not take the credit. LOL!  She did a wonerful job on it.  I was curious what stitch length she had her machine set at?  Really nice stitch quality!

I usually use around 11-12 stitches per inch.  Sometimes I'll go to 10.  I don't like big stitches because I think it doesn't look as professional.  That may just be me.
