  1. Thanks everyone! Two more small projects to get done before the big day . They're ready to load first thing tomorrow. This eleventh hour stuff is too stressful...I really must start this stuff in January!! These will be the last projects on my Lenni, as my Lucey just arrived this week! Merry Christmas to me! Hope she's as agreeable to working with me as Lenni was! Merry Christmas everyone! Kathy
  2. I just put this one in the mail to my in-laws yesterday. It’s a Moda Bake Shop quilt pattern using a Jelly Roll, which gave me a little trouble and I ended up doing some creative piecing to get it finished. I used Superior Monopoly to ditch it, beside the ditch, as the seams are all pressed open, then completed the rest with a Glide 40wt. Lenni worked really well with the Monopoly, thank the quilting gods! ;-). It’s about 60” square after washing. And I need to give credit to Tracey Russell from Whirls n Swirls Quilting who came out with the background full video the day I put it on the frame!
  3. Wow! Those are awesome! They're going to love them!
  4. Tablerunners

    Looks pretty good from here! I'm a one direction ribbon candy quilter. It's a tough one to do in all directions for me. Practice practice I know...
  5. New* True 1/4 Foot

    When I had my HQ Sweet 16, I had several different feet for it and found I really only used the ruler foot, as to switch feet was impractical as I always use my ruler in pretty much every quilt I quilt at some point.
  6. Tips For New Long Arm Owner?

    Congratulations!!! So exciting!!! You will love your machine and APQS is excellent in customer care, so don't fret! I wind my own bobbins so I bought a bunch to have on hand and they are pretty inexpensive as well as getting an extra bobbin case. I too made a sling for my batting from an old sheet and some rope and bungee cords. Only really need it for the big quilts though. A smallish (2"x10") straight edge ruler with 1/4" registration marks on it, is a great place to start of you have an interest in doing ruler work. The one that comes with the Hartley base expander is pretty big and unwieldy IMHO. You'll figure it out in time, and the forum is a great resource for those questions that come up. Enjoy your new machine!
  7. New* True 1/4 Foot

    Thanks for the feedback gkazee. Obviously, I'm not alone in this. I'm glad to hear you find it an improvement.
  8. I was wondering if anyone has made the investment in the New* (I say New, because it came out shortly after I bought my Lenni machine last year) True 1/4" foot that APQS came out with in the last year? It is a pet peave of mine that the hopping foot that comes with the machines is not a true 1/4" foot, after having a Handi Quilter with one as standard equipment. I find it makes a difference most if you are trying to use a template, like a circle on the inside or another curved template, or any template really where you are travelling on the inside of it. Not to mention wanting to use the backside of the foot for just a straight edge. So if you have acquired one, how's it work for you? Worth the investment? Thanks Kathy
  9. That is one awesome quilt! What a treasure! Your quilting choices were spot on. Well done by both yourself and the customer. I wouldn't want to give that one away!!!!
  10. Very cute quilt and great quilting choices and execution!
  11. EQ 8

    There are some encouraging comments here! I have had EQ7 for sometime and never got the hang of it, but when EQ8 came out and the upgrade price was discounted, I bought it, hoping maybe I'd be able to get the hang of it! I haven't installed it yet, but it's on my list of things to learn this year. I am determined!! So much to do....
  12. Houston Quilt Show

    It was great to meet you too Mary Beth and so glad it worked out for us to connect! We only got to the show for that one day and we only saw a fraction of the quilts. We both ended up sick with rotten colds and one day is just not enough!! Next time!
  13. Batting tape

    I’ve started using really light fusible interfacing I buy by the yard. I cut it into strips about 2.5” wide for joining batting pieces. It’s a bit more economical than the tape and easier than stitching. If you just butt join batting without anything, I’d worry about the batting sagging or folding and whatnot in the quilt sandwich if the quilting isn’t close enough to stop it where the batting edges are, if you know what I mean.
  14. That's a really pretty quilt. I love your colour combination. Looks pretty great from here!
