Wow Agnes, The base clef is great.  Is this what you made for the gentleman guitar player who saw your wall hanging right after you moved in?  It turned out great.     Ginny

OH Kris, I think that I am in love with your machine just looking at it.  It looks like it would be so easy to move just how you  wanted.  Oh, and I love your color too.    Ginny

Kris, Congratulations on your new arrival! How exciting for you!  Are those Red Snappers that you're using to attach the quilt to the leaders? Let me know how you like them. I'm wondering how well they hold when the rollers are moved to tighten the back or top. I'm getting quicker attaching the quilt parts to the leaders using pins, but I'd still like an even faster way.  Have fun!

I'm not Kris, but I have the Red Snappers and with my neuropathy I would not be able to load a quilt without them. They hold really well, I have not had a problem with them.

Life is like a quilt...bits & pieces, joy & sorrow, stitched with love

Kris, a sweet piece of equipment you have there!!! I know you are going to have a good time with it!!

Agnes, your quilt is great!! Like the way you did the quilting around the clef.

Joyce, you must live on the eastern shore of Md!! I'm love crabs!!! For many years I lived about 15 miles from OC.

🌺 You know you are a quilter when the only scraps under your table are fabric.🐾

Yes they are. They came with the machine but I had some with my previous machine and I don't like them. I have a very hard time getting them on the frame. I have carpal tunnel syndrome and my wrists hurt a lot trying to use them. I had to enlist DH's help and went back to pinning. A lot of people like them but they don't do it for me.

I recently purchased Leader Grips which I find more manageable.

It is very easy to move which was a huge selling point for me. The dealer loves the colour as well and says he's going to try to see if the manufacturer play up the custom paint angle.

Kris, your new machine is beautiful, love the color. Hope you feel better soon so you can enjoy it. How hard is it to learn to move the needle over the fabric instead of moveing the fabric under the needle?

Bonita I had a Babylock QCP on a frame before upgrading so I'm fairly used to quilting this way but I now have an 18 inch throat instead of nine and the frame is sturdier. The machine moves better too.

That said; I don't really find it difficult to switch to my DSM and moving the fabric. My stitches don't look as uniform though especially when changing direction.
