  • Re: Looking for Long Arm Advice - Need your experience

    Two years ago, I bought my HQ18 Avante. Yes, I would buy it again! I have it set up at 12 ft, it takes up most of my basement. I do not have the ProStitcher. It's an extremely easy, forgiving machine to learn on. Things I would want to know: 1) At the time I bought my machine, the Handihandles would...

  • Re: Did You Work on a Quilt Today? #5

    Thanks Barbara for both threads. Actually all's I'm going to do is add a large border. That way I can still follow the pattern, which is for a novice like me. Yep, I definately feel like I bit off more than I can chew, but I think it'll work. The actuall pattern is for a twin bed, so I'll...

  • Re: Block size for border

    Thanks, I found this site really helpful. I've checked Quiltville too. I guess what I wanted was a chart that would give me different sizes of finished blocks. Oh, well! I have tried several starting square sizes and I have about decided on 7 inch squares. We will see. thanks for the help.

  • Border questions

    Hi there, I have a question about borders. Do they need to be the same on all four sides or has anyone ever made the side bigger than the top and bottom or vise versa?? Cheri

  • Piecing the Quilt

    I have started putting my quilt blocks together in their rows now. I am not sure the best way to add the borders since they are longer than the cut pieces of fabric. I know I could piece straight across on piece on the bias. Wonder if piecing straight across is OK since piecing on the bias seems to waste...

    All the finished tops look so great - Nana's pattern turned out really great in any color! I finally got my last border sewn on after supper tonight, but no way to take a picture until tomorrow - it's so big, will have to take it outside to get it all in!! I used every scrap of all the fabrics...

  • Quilting in sections

    I watched a video on QNNtv about quilting in sections for a regular machine. It was by Marti Michelle. She did not show how to put the sections together after you have quilted them.
