  • Re: machine quilting a queen size

    Good for you Jerika! At first I was intimidated putting a huge quilt into that tiny machine, (or so it seemed), but now its second nature. Maneuvering the quilt almost seems natural. When family or friends come over and watch they always ask how I do that....I always reply with I don't know, I just...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...
