  1. Scissor holder

    Well, learned something new the other day. Video from APQS discussing the much miced scissor holder at the top of the machine. Wait, it isn't a scissor holder??? I' love be. New knowledge sure came in handy when a customer wanted a butterfly stitched..... Moved my laser and Bam, I am stitching a butterfly!!! Now if I can only find my
  2. That is amazing work! The ability to see what it can be is inspiring and then it to have the skills to accomplish. Wow!
  3. I have never done it, but thinking it thru, seems like you could. Will you start in the center and work out or will it be side to side? I think you would have to have fairly tight tension on your layers to keep from getting wrinkles. I don't know. Definately something to ponder. Can't wait to see how it comes out.
  4. I prefer the forum. I like the companionship. We may have businesses, but we are not trying to sell. Just looking to discuss, share ideas/issues and show and tell. I have learned so much from the members here.
  5. Apqs is having a used sale Comes with some warranty. Check out the web site! Hope they have just what you want

      apparently my phone has me logged in. I will see if I can find her post.


  7. Though I would post a picture of a tablerunner. Nothing grand, but great practice without burning a lot of time. Ribbon candy is tough.
  8. Those are absolutely beautiful! I am sure they will be cherished. The stories they will hear....
  9. Beatrice, I think both sides of the quilt are true. ") In the case of Kathleen Riggs, she must be famous for her quilting and people want to say " this was quilted by Kathleen Riggs", therefore no consultation. In your case with this particular customer, she almost said the same thing, chose you over others whom she had access to, likes what you do, wanted something special with out knowing what she wanted. I think that was giving you the creative license to do what you do. Waters got muddied when you tried to get her input on the quilt. The other side is some people have a very definately idea of what they want, either dictated by end use of the quilt, or budget. So, I guess you do need to rethink, some know what stiches they want and some want you. What a great compliment to your skills!
  10. Magnifier warning

    Really appreciate the heads up!
  11. What a beauty! Great skills.
  12. Quilt is so bold, quilting is going to definately be secondary. I would look at pictures for inspiration. Maybe mimic the diamonds with a giant one from center to center of sides, top and bottom. Then a 1/4 or 1/2" inside to frame, followed by a fill in the center and a giant feather at the quarters. There is a lot of inspiration on this forum. Outer border looks smallish, but maybe piano keys...I love piano keys. Look and have fun! ") Cant wait to see what others see and what you end up doing. Make sure you post a picture!
