  • 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

    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.

    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

    Thea thanks for the photos. Looks like you all had fun & so much more space to sew in! Great job, Judy, in finding the spot. Block Party Studios posted photos on their facebook page - you are celebrities!

    Ramona, Superior Threads recommends Bottom Line in the bobbin when using their monofilament so that is what I tried. I had already picked another thread to blend with the backing but found a bottom line that matches as well. There could be any number of issues here so I think I really need to play around til I get it to work or run out of thread! LOL
