  • Stitch length for attaching binding

    Is using 3.0 length stitches a good idea for attaching binding to the quilt sandwich? I am using the walking foot. Or, should I still use the 2.5 stitch length? I can't believe I am finally at this point on my MQ6!

  • On the borders!

    I am getting excited! I finished the quilting on the blocks, and am now on the white border. This has been a learning experience. I made better progress using a size 12 needle instead of the smaller 10. I did most of the blocks echoing the seams, but on the solid color blocks, I went ahead and stitched a design. I am going to be so happy when I can

    Gina, Really pretty mq7. I am presently working on a quilt using this same pretty fabric line. I love the green borders that you chose.

  • Finished the first block :)

    I am now on the 2nd block! It was slow progress at first, but I am picking up speed. It is still going to take a while. When I work on hand quilting, it is usually for an hour or an hour and a half if I am lucky. This is ok with me, because I am also machine quilting MQ6 on my machine. If I get tired of working on one, I move to the other quilt so that

  • Re: 10 stitches per inch...really?

    Marie, thanks for your kind words. It is very encouraging to know that the stitches do not have to be perfect. If one of my stitches gets a little too long, I do draw the needle out so that it doesn't look bad. I want to have fun running the needle and thread around the pattern. I do have a new question on this topic. Is it ok to go from one side

  • Started the hand quilting!

    Hello hand quilters! I am excited because I just made the first quilting stitches on a lap size quilt. Not all my stitches are perfect, but that is ok with me. I still like the way they look! I imagine I will get better stitches as I progress. I used a layer cake American Banner Rose as well as some fabrics from my stash. I am using glace cotton thread

    Jenia, what a coincidence! I just began hand quilting my first lap size quilt today. I like doing special things on a Sunday. Well when I read your post I went and counted and measured. If you count both the top and bottom stitches, I am getting 9, 10, and 12 stitches per inch. Not too uniform yet, but I am sure I will improve as I go along. I am using

  • Re: I finished my first quilt last night!!!

    Good job Sara! My first quilts were tied quilts. The first machine quilted items was a bag and a table topper, so you did really good on your daughters quilt. I have found that all the steps to making a quilt get easier as one progresses. It will be fun to see your next project :-)
