  • 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...

  • Re: Quilting Gloves

    I absolutely love F&P quilting gloves! I think you were looking at the wrong ones at JoAnn's. The only downside to the gloves is they don't last long...maybe a year or so before they start getting holes in the tips. (But I do a lot of quilting.) I have also purchased the more expensive ones...

  • machine quilting rectangles

    Help! I am a fairly new quilter. I am attempting to quilt echoed rectangles but can't manuever the quilt very well under my machine (I just have a standard Kenmore machine - nothing fancy!). I am using my walking foot rather than free-motion because I thought it would be more precise, but it is taking...

  • Re: Sit down quilting machines

    I have a Pfaff grand quilter (hobby 1200) and I have been really pleased with it. It's moderately priced compared to some of the others but it has all the important features: knee lift, threader, thread cutter etc. You can use it as a sit down, which I do, or put it on a frame. I didn't get the...

  • Re: Stencils for Pounce Pad

    Hi Sharon, Glad to help! I like to be thrifty where I can. I buy the best rulers and such but the everyday little things can save you enough to buy another one of the best items. Did you know that a sharpie, overhead projector sheet and a coloring book can make stencils with, will make almost any theme...
