  • Re: quilting with machine embroidery

    OK ... I think I've got it... I have a 6 needle machine, so maybe my setup is a little different, but... I got 4 of those little locking pliers from Lowes at $2 each. I used those to clamp the quilt to the frame. I used a little piece of batting on each to protect the quilt and frame. It worked!!! Have only done a trial - not the actual quilt itself

    Thank you once again! I understand exactly what you are saying about cutting the hole out of the stabilizer and reusing it. I'll have to do some samples and see what happens! I'll let you know what I figure out... I have a couple of quilts to finish first, and some maternity clothes to make for my daughter-in-law, but I'll get to this -

    oh my!!! Thank you so much for taking the time to write all of that out. It makes perfect sense to me - I just hadn't thought it through. Using the largest hoop - that is a LOT of stabilizer... I wonder if it would work to go to the hardware store and find some sort of clamp to put on all 4 corners. Then I could use baste the interior of the hoop

    One more question Donna... Any heroics required to hoop it? Can you get all 3 layers in a hoop? thanks!

  • quilting with machine embroidery

    Does anyone have any advise about using a machine embroidery design to finish a quilt? I need to quilt a small quilt that has approx 5 x 5" snowballs. I can't get the detail I want with the longarm. (it can probably be done, but I can't do it!). Machine embroidery usually looks funky on the back, and I don't want that on the quilt.
