  1. Finished customer quilt finally.

    Love the combo of straight lines and feathers...looks great!

    It is absolutely beautiful with exquisite quilting? What issue of McCalls has the pattern?
  3. How exciting! Very talented...what an honour...
  4. My Accomplished Quilting :)

    I love the quilt...Gorgeous design and nice panto choice...LUCEY did a great job...
  5. Slow blow FUSE FOR LUCEY

    Thanks Cagey, I put the 2 amp in there...the one I removed was 3.15...but what got me confused was why did I have 4 packages of 2amp...and Dawn does say 2 amp...??? I rechecked the doesn't mention Lucey..and it is a bit unclear...not sure about the sentence right after United Stated...(missing punctuation....a period ) does that sentence refer to LUCEY? My dear LUCEY is not mentioned, only Lenni...
  6. Hello, My LUCEY blew another fuse today...I checked the manual ...which says for LUCEY you need 3.15 or 4 amp 250 volt....but when I checked my stash (I had purchased extras last time this happened)...I realized they are all 2 amp?? Not 3.15... Then I checked the thread I started when I his happened in 2013 and see that Dawn said it should be 2 amp...I put in a 2 amp...but want to be sure it won't cause any damage... if anyone can clarify ...I would appreciate it before I buy 3.15 amp as I went to the Toronto...and they don't carry 3.15 any more...none at Canadian I will order online if needed... thanks, tella

  10. Perparing a backing

    I have read some charge per seam when backing needs to be pieced together...$10 per seam....

    I spent the day at Quilt Canada today and stopped in at the APQS booth where I brought this issue up with Matt Sparrow....who tells me it is perfectly normal for the line to be off ...and as you advance the quilt the fabric shrinks in a bit...and the panto will be off...I understand what he was saying and it makes sense but mine always shifts more to one side than the other...

    Thank you again...I have seen Kim Brunner method of straightening out the leaders...on occasion, I have pinned my 2 canvasses together, rolled and re rolled and even left them overnight...they never really were that least I thought...since my machine is from 2012 and for the first couple years wasn't used hard at all... The only part I didn't see the need for was the pressing and restitching a new hem but I may have to go thru the process again and really check it... Like Heidi I am only having this problem on really big quilts...but I want it to go away... Mamaahma, so glad this post inspired you to fix the problem...your post helped me out to...I saved the instructions again and will do another diagnostic soon...

    Thanks everyone for the good advice...I haven't checked in for a couple of days and just read the recent posts... Heidi...I don't have fabric advance...but I think you are right...even when advancing manually I feel one side is slightly tighter...tonight I just loaded a backing ...right side rolled I just rolled my hands around the fabric until I got the same amount on tension... Jim....if I pin selvages to rollers I don't worry too much about sides stacking exactly one in top on other..they usually won't unless someone has been extremely careful to square up sides... Debbie,I will check the measurements...hadn't thought of that ...yes and I like Bonnie want to know if there is a way to fix that if it is the case But, I don't think my quilt shifted...because the sides were always lined up with the painter tape reference seemed to be pattern was shifted...I am beginning to think it has everything to do with the laser was tight but sometimes I would adjust it a smidge and and again... I have just loaded another big quilt tonight and I am going to do a little experimenting on this I can avoid this mistake if I am making it...

    Bonnie, I have also narrowed it down to maybe the laser moving ever so slightly has to be the only fact a couple of times I have ever so slightly adjusted the laser myself... I am going to do a little experimenting with this on the next quilt to see if I can figure this all out...I must be I am getting on the bottom of this... Thanks for your input...

    No the panto design is slightly off, in this particular case by the time I advanced near the end of the 112 inch quilt it was off by 2 inches...but again, the sides were always lined up perfectly with my marker tape I had that is why I am confused
