  • 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...

  • 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...
