I am so proud of myself as I have mastered meandering at long last. It was not as difficult as I thought. I used two pieces of non slip tray covers the size of my hands, and used them to control the feed of fabric. They were much easier than using gloves.I am looking forward to looking round your stores when I come over next year for 6 weeks from Scotland. Woo Hoo !

Wendy, I am very happy for you - meandering is like doodling to me - I like it a lot - but I think I don't do it absolutely correct as I cross over my lines and do figure 8's and draw pictures as I am meandering across the quilt - I think for true meandering you are not supposed to cross any sewing line but I don't much care - teehee... and again congratulations!  I like the F&P quilting gloves the best.  they make them in different sizes which helps me to fit my hands.

Wendy, that is wonderful. I must learn machine quilting but just keep putting it off.Pproblem is my smaller quits can't be done on the longarm so either I learn or hand quilt them. And I am not fond of hand quilting either. I like piecing.

What machine do you have/ I have a Brother.

Sukochi, any size quilt can be done on a long arm - I have even seen them do different clothes on long arms - plus table runners and place mats...

You can do any size quilt on a longarm machine. Now, don't laugh here!  I actually quilted my Alzheimer auction quilt on my longarm and it was less than 9 x 12 inches.  It got a lot of chuckles from one of my friends seeing that little quilt on my  Gammill 14 ft table. I have to hand it to anyone who can quilt on their home machines. I never could get the hang of it.
