  • Need recommendations for long arm machine and frame

    Hi, everyone. I am a newbie to QCA and am in the market for a long arm machine with frame. I don't want to use my regular sewing machine for quilting, but would rather spend the money for a long arm. For anyone who owns a long arm machine and/or frame, could I please get the good and bad of your...

  • Re: Did you work on a quilt today?

    Diane and Stephanie, You both asked about monofilament thread. There is great information at http://www.superiorthreads.com with lots of educational info as well as product info. I love their MonoPoly which is a polyester monofilament invisible thread that is soft and heat resistant unlike nylon monofilament...

  • Monopoly invisible thread

    Please share your experience on machine quilting with monopoly invisible thread. What size machine needle worked best for you? Did you need to adjust the upper thread tension, the bobbin tension or the foot pressure? How did you knot this slippery thread? Did you drop the feed dogs and use the free motion...

  • Re: How would you quilt this?

    [quote user="Judy Iliff"] I actually bury the knots using the quilters knot. [/quote] Judy, do you mean to say that you do this by hand, the way you would if you were hand quilting a piece? If so, you are a very patient person. I think I'll continue to take a few little bitty machine stitches...

  • Re: Machine quilting tips?

    Gale Painter's tape...the blue kind... works great for marking any kind of straight line. As with anything you sew going in opposite directions is best if you can find a way to get the bulk through your machine. As for the gloves or the grips it is personal preference. If you can get a secure foundation...

  • Re: How would you quilt this?

    Gale, You're going to think I'm nuts to have done this, but I'm about to start a quilt that also is rectangle-based, and have been thinking about how I would quilt it. I made up a simplified version of yours on EQ6, and put quilting in some of the blocks to illustrate my idea. This would...

  • Re: sewing machine reviews

    Kris, thank you for sharing this info. I'm with Nancy ... I can now see a frame and dedicated DSM in my future. How exciting to think of getting all these quilt tops quilted.

    Really? Can you work with a queen size quilt on that? (I don't see myself making anything bigger than that.) I'm really excited to think a frame might be within my reach! I've been put off by the packages at the store - up to $20,000 for an Avante, deluxe frame, software, etc.

  • Re: Fun N Done?

    I put this in my WASTE NOT WANT NOT category of quilting.... I like the technique but I do not do the FUN AND DONE patterns... I use this method to stitch my practice batts together when I am trialing new patterns... and I often use this technique with orphan blocks. crumb and string blocks, blotto blocks...

  • Re: Did you work on a quilt today?

    Did a FUN AND DONE quilting class today... What a great technique... I think it can be done to any block as long as you realize there will be sashing between the blocks. I made 2 blocks in class then went home and made two more blocks. I also got out some of my wonky blotto blocks put a frame around...
