Picture the scene: I spent half an hour setting up my kitchen: cleared the dinner table, moved the sewing machine, set the ironing board behind me, threaded up 4 spools, put in a new needle, positioned the quilt, hey presto, I was all set up...

  • Buying a longarm (HandiQuilter HQ Pro Stitcher)

    Yesterday was the 3rd time I went to look at the Handi Quilter setup (HQ18 Avante and 10ft frame). 16K ! (yikes - that is a car payment). But I'm getting more and more serious about the purchase.

  • Quilt As You Go

    I am a new quilter and have recently heard about quilting as you go. Has anyone worked a large quilt this way and do you prefer this over quilting the entire project after basting the quilt sandwich? Any tips would be appreciated!

  • Invisible thread and baby quilts

    I'm about to machine quilt a real quilt for the first time--after practicing--and was wondering if invisible thread is appropriate for a flannel baby quilt. I don't know if there are safety issues for the baby, or if the filament will cut the flannel? Thanks!. Steph
