    Customer Quilt Photo's

    years ago I belonged to a site that allowed you to post pics for free. Of course they were bought and I was told I could down load all my pics but they now had all rights to my pics. People still re-post pics of quilts I've designed. Are you hoping to gain more customers by showing your work? If not and it is just to share then post them here on this site because we certainly enjoy seeing all of them.
  2. I entered 3 quilts in this years show. Received 2 Honorable Mentions and Judges Choice. Thought I'd share a picture.

    NQR...New Addition

    Congrats on the newest member of your family! Cute as a button.
  4. I have a turbo winder from APQS that has started acting strange. When it winds about 3/4 of the way the spinning slows down to a crawl. It doesn't shut off it just slows way down. I adjusted the little post that senses how much thread has been wound which has helped. Are we supposed to oil this unit some where?
  5. I only take my Featherweight! Love that machine. Makes a perfect stitch and is a work horse. I also find the sound very soothing. I bought a small compact roller case in Lowe's tool department that works great for this machine.

    Couching

    I don't see why not. Couching is simply laying down a ribbon or yarn etc. and doing a zig zag stitch to secure it. I watched one show where a lady put beads onto a quilt with her long arm. However, she had removed the hopping foot!!! I wouldn't recommend that, lol. https://www.apqs.com/couching-with-your-longarm/ https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=couching+with+a+long+arm+machine&view=detail&mid=D7928BF7591D75FA86B2D7928BF7591D75FA86B2&FORM=VIRE the above video is from Dawn C. at apqs

    Rotary Cutter Blades

    I bought the titanium blades and I had the same blade in my cutter for 2 years!!!!! That is with heavy use. They are impossible to find at your local quilt shop but they can be ordered on line.

    Baby quilt

    So bright and beautiful. I can see a baby just loving the colors. Great job.
  9. I always outline and go around every element in the applique block. I do in some cases stitch on the applique if it is a large piece. If you don't it can make them look puckered. I make sure that it is okay with my customer first. I do not have a computerized system.

    tension with Dream Blend batting

    Betty, thank you for coming back and reporting on what worked and didn't work. There is nothing more frustrating than tension issues especially random tension problems. I would bet on the needle size as the biggest help in improving the tension.

    BOM quilt pic

    I knew you were going to say that! We got 3 inches of snow so it won't be taken outside and it is so big I can't get a picture of the whole quilt. I'll try later and see if I can get at least half of it.

    BOM quilt pic

    I am stumped. Have a customer who brought me a very large Medallion Mystery bom quilt. I'm struggling with quilting ideas. It has a large 36" medallion which is a large block with sashing around it. Then there is a ring of blocks around the center of various sizes 8 & 16" blocks and there are odd size filler blocks. The outside border is made up of 2 borders of different colors and sizes. I thought about an edge to edge. I've consider custom in the medallion and borders with some sort of meander in the odd size blocks. Has anyone else done one of these? Help
