  • Re: Long arms, any recommendations?

    Terry, I have an 18" Baby Lock Crown Jewel as well as an 11" dedicated straight stitch sit-down machine - both have advantages & disadvantages. The first decision you need to make is based on how much space you have as most long arms are set on frames that are at least 10 feet wide for bed-size quilts. Most frames can be set up at half

  • Re: Needing info on t-shirt quilting

    Pamela, I've made a couple t-shirt quilts - one had no batting & I tied it (nephew just wanted to hang it on a wall) and the other has Warm & Natural batting and I quilted it with MonoPoly (Superior Thread's monofilament thread) on my longarm. I had to experiment quite a bit to get the tension just right & I made a sample to do that

  • Re: George or the Tiara II

    Leah, do you have dealers of either one in the area or will there be a sewing/quilting show anywhere near you soon? It's best if you can try out the machines you are considering to see which you like best. I have a Babylock Crown Jewel and am pleased with the machine & service from my dealer. Good luck :-)

  • Re: I'm in

    I like Judy's suggestions. I would not like to have to pull out each piece of fabric & measure - or even guess at measurements - of all that's in my stash. It's not HUGE but I would prefer to use my time cutting up & making quilts from the fabric. I am fortunate to have inherited (a couple years ago) some fabric & other items

  • Re: Using Interface in a Quilt

    I use a lightweight fusible interfacing for t-shirt quilts (keeps the shirts from stretching). I have not used it for anything else yet but may use it on a bandana quilt I will be making as some of the bandanas are quite thin.

  • Re: Longarmers Share #2

    Thanks again to Ramona & Thea for the advice & link to bobbin video. I ripped out the rest of the old stitches from my sample t-shirt "quilt" today & loaded it back on the frame. I then loaded a different bobbin, loosened the bobbin tension, rethreaded the top thread & tightened that tension (it was pretty loose) and it worked
