  • Quilting Frames

    I am considering getting a quilting frame. I am thinking about possibly getting the Flynn multi-frame or something similar. I was wondering if anyone has used one or something similar and if so what are your opinions on it. Is it worth it? Is there anything I should know before buying it? I don't...

  • 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

  • Re: Do You Quilt on a Sewing Machine or Long Arm

    I've always quilted all my quilts on my home sewing machine. I have quilted everything from preemie quilts to a king size double wedding ring. It is so gratifying when the quilt is done knowing you just spent endless hours making it as perfect as can be for someone you love! I will say that in the...

  • Why am I always nervous about the quilting part?

    I currently have a finished top, already to quilt. This is the part that frightens me. I could easily screw up my beautiful top. Most of my quilts wind up being just meandered, becasue I am to chicken to do anything else. I spend time at work, in meetings, doodling my quilting patterns, but when I sit...

    Hello Frances. Great question! I began quilting my quilts, even queen size, on a brother sewing machine. Nothing special. I graduated to a Pfaff Grand quilter a little over 2 years ago. I have it set up like a regular sewing machine. I do all my piecing and quilting on it. I could never afford to set...

  • Re: Thread

    Robin, I always use cotton for piecing because it shrinks and blends better with the fabrics. But when quilting the quilt, I use whatever works best with the look I'm trying to achieve. I will say that most of the time its cotton, but in different weights. I also use the clear mono-filament thread...
