  • 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!...

  • Has anyone used Block Party Studios panels in their quilts?

    I have an Irish Blessings panel from block party studios. It has 3 panels...2 are actually 8 1/2" squares and one is like 14x18 I think. I would like to make a 'quick quilt' for a wedding at the end of October and include these panels. I am usually pretty good at coming up with a pattern...

  • Re: Quilting a small piece.

    When my material shifts I check a few things first: Are there enough pins? Make sure they are no more than a fist apart. Are the feed dogs down/covered? Some machines have adjustable presser for the presser foot...can you loosen a bit? If all else fails try a walking foot. (Although I don't like...

  • Re: Longarmers Share

    I have a long arm system and I would gladly load and baste anyone's quilt for just $15.00. Any takers out there? I use either regular cotton thread at 6 stitches per inch or dissolving thread. The dissolving thread will disappear in warm water (usually in your tub) after you have finished your quilt...

  • sewslip

    Has any one ever used this product called sewslip? I have been having an issue with my quilt not moving well when I am machine quilting. It often sticks. I saw this on line and was wondering if it is worth it to buy it.

  • Best way to rip out machine quilting stitches

    I started machine quilting a lap quilt awhile back, but hate the way it looks. I am starting the tedious process of removing the stitches, but I am worried about accidentally ripping the fabric instead of the thread. This is one of the very first quilts I tried to machine myself and I had read about...

  • Re: quilting on a domestic machine

    I, too, am of the smoosh persuasion. I find that rolling it up is like wrestling a telephone pole. Also, I have just one 5' long table. Sometimes lower my ironing board to table height to help with the load out to the left side of my machine. One thing I find to be SUPER IMPORTANT is good basting...

  • domestic machine quilting, help please

    I've been working through a book "Easy Machine Quilting". I've done the exorcizes on 14" blocks, they turned out really well and like to use my domestic machine for quilting. But now I have a lap quilt (maybe a little bigger) I want to start on. I've done a bit, but find myself...
