    [quote user="polkij"]but can't get my sewing machine to do correctly to let me do the stippling design.... [/quote] Just a quick question - did you put the feed dogs down to do free-motion quilting? You will also have to adjust your tension. Try the process out on a quilt sandwich sample...

  • Re: Help with Free Motion quilting

    Warm up with a sample using the same fabric/batting combo as in the project. Drop the feed dogs or lower the stitch length to zero to slow down the motion of the feed dogs. Use a free motion/spring foot so it will not press against the top side. Tighten the top tension a bit, to help avoid getting loops...

  • Quilting On a Home Sewing Machine Without Special Gloves

    I tried using quilters gloves and gardening gloves for quilting on my home sewing machine, but was frustrated by having to put on and remove the gloves so often.

  • Help my addiction

    I just joined this club, hoping to share in this fun new mess I've gotten myself into. I've been quilting for 5 years now. I've quit my day job, stay up way too late, and wake up way too early with new ideas jumping out of my head. I find it hard to get motivated to do any cleaning, wash...

  • Re: Looking for ideas for an all over design for a baby quilt

    I love to do the swirls with loops and hearts on baby quilts. This design seems to give enough density that it will hold up for decades and looks adorable and suitable for baby!

  • Re: It's Time for MQ V!

    I've been looking through my magazines at the Christmas wall hangings. I made one last year for our motorhome. It was one of those last minute panels and I added some borders and then quilted around it. It really did turn out cute and the kids did like it, so that is important. I started to cut some...

  • Re: Finishing your quilt when using appliques

    Wendy, I don't think there are any rules in quilting. It all comes down to personal preference. Personally, I quilt around my applique motifs' because I want them to stand out. And the hole in the back...it actually looks really neat because you can see the shape of the motif from the front!...
