  1. Baby quilt

    What a cute quilt!
  2. Metro Hoops finnish

    Beautiful quilt and quilting. I like that motif...not quite feathers, but more like flower petals.
  3. The fabric is some sort of fairy frost type tone on tone....very opulent looking fabric. I quilted pebbles in the background of each of the blocks.
  4. Here are a few pics of some recent quilts. My customer did a fabulous job piecing a Cleopatra's fan quilt. I used Hobb's wool batting and Metro Pro thread. I stitched the same design in each block, but in some the thread blends too well and you can't see the quilting. The narrow brown border has a leaf type feather and the outer border is curved crosshatching. My photographing ability leaves a lot to be desired. The pinwheel quilt was made by my daughter (pictured) for the woman who has kept her baby for a few hours each week. Yes, that's my first grandbaby, Raylee Grace. All quilting stops when she's around.
  5. I love the forum. When I began my quilting journey with my longarm, I looked at it daily and spent much time reading posts,studying pics. As my quilting abilities developed I began posting pics to get feedback. As I've become busier, it's more difficult to take pics and post. I need to get better about doing that again. I've not really ever looked into FB quilt groups though. Our guild has a member's only FB and that's good for keeping up with what others are doing...but many just post cutesy type quilting photo sayings, etc. I've noticed that others have not posted as many pics too...I just suppose we're all alike like in that we all have things we're involved with other than quilting. Here's mine...my 6 month old granddaughter Raylee.
  6. String of Pearls

    Fabulous Libby!
  7. Flatlining

    Very NIce Swirls!
  8. Stitch length adjustment

    I know that there are some screws that can be adjusted on one of the circuit boards on the back of the machine but that should ONLY BE DONE WHILE ON THE PHONE WITH AMY OR ONE OF THE OTHER TECHS FROM APQS OFFICE. Quite a few years ago it seems my stitches weren't of consistent length and there was a measuring process I had to go through. I would first check to make sure your encoder wheels are making good contact and not slipping anywhere. (I also have the non-bliss system).
  9. Ready to bind!

    She should love it!
  10. Wow! Beautiful quilting! I've quilted a few JN quilts also, and I don't think I have the patience or ability to piece one for myself.
  11. Business Name

    My business name is Forever Designing...I came up with that because I've sewn my whole life and have always tried different sewing ventures to make money. Thankfully I found my niche in longarm quilting, but should I decide to do other things besides just quilts, I feel my name would encompass anything I might attempt in the fabric world. What are some things you like, the town where you live...these might give you some ideas. It's hard to make suggestions not knowing anything about you.
  12. Baby gift

    CUTE quilt!! Quilting is Fabulous too!
  13. New to me Freedom

    You should be able to call APQS and give them the serial number and they can tell you when it was manufactured and answer all of your questions. They offer GREAT customer service!
