As far as that goes, its a small quilt, just a lap size so I could baste around the edges and that would stabilize it fairly well.
seems to me if you stabilize all 4 sides well so it doesn't get caught on the machine head itself, it might work. I honestly never tried something like that. I don't tend to even look much at my quilt top when I do the panto. I just use the panto on the back for placement of the next line once I have it going.
Good luck and let us know how this all works out!!
Hi Carol. My machine is a Gammill. To be honest the picture doesn't do her justice! The purple is an amazing purple metalic with sparkly fleck in it. She's a beauty for sure!!
Snugglebug Quilter:don't tend to even look much at my quilt top when I do the panto
I dont' do panto's I free motion and I always look to place the elements correctly. Having fun with it but I just can't see where I'm going somedays.
Hi Granny M.,
Nice job! I am a big fan of the Blues, LOL!
I can see a very tight stipple around the stars that is very uniform but I can't make out what you used in the tan areas, What did you use?
The hearts in the center of stars turned out nicely.
Congratulations! you must be excited! Everyone here is extremely helpful, just ask the question and you will have many answers and suggestions to help.
I see you longarmed you date free hand, Great job! I think you son probably is or will be thrilled to lay on and under his quilt! He will be admiring all the animals and you talent.
Very nice job! It looks like it was fun, too!
LOL! That is how we get caught up!
Both sides are the right side in this case! Whatever direction or side works that best for your quilt. Alot of times I turn a quilt side ways on my Miss Jewel as long as it helps in the final design or pattern that I have chosen to do. I think that I would put tick marks down the sides so that I know where the side of my quilt is, so that I din't waste too much thread.
You could use a string or something to lay across instead of marking your quilt. No clean up. LOL
I 'm a lazy quilter,
I can chalk the edges, they get cut off anyway. I think thats what I'm going to do with this quilt. At least I'll know if it works.
The quilt you made for Hospice is just wonderful. They are certainly going to appreciate it and it will give comfort to someone in need.
I love the patriotic quilt for your Granddaughter. What a wonderful keepsake.
I agree. Those blocks are adorable! He is going to use this for years to come and have a wonderful keepsake from his grandma.
