    Welcome we can't wait to see some of your quilting. I know your gonna love it! I used to own a Mille and just loved it. I had to sell and am going through withdraw this entire year. I am looking forward to the day I own another one. There is nothing more enjoyable than quilting for me except my children and grandchildren.

    thought this might help. if you cant find answers on the forum or blog then I always look on you tube. https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=how+to+load+a+quilt+apqs
  11. Machine has been sold.

    What are you asking for your machine? Do you have photos?
  12. When I had my Millie I usually just basted both of my sides right and left and of course the top of the quilt. If you watch lots of different videos on you tube and of course apqs videos and read the blogs there you can find lots of good ideas on when to SID and when you don't need to. SID is an easy way to travel from one place to the next without starting and stopping and this helps with the time involved when you are quilting and also secures the quilting area so there is less movement in the area being quilted. Not every single block needs to be SID unless that is what you like to do. If you do pantos which is an all over design you don't SID and they come out beautiful! I say find what you like and practice, practice, practice and play around with different designs and see what you like to do. Have fun and have a happy New Year!
