  1. Thanks for the reply Lori. My Liberty does not have the thread cutter. I should have put that on my original post. Thanks anyway.
  2. I would like to find a Hartley base expander for my Liberty so I can start doing ruler work. Does anyone have one they would like to sell at a reasonable price? Thanks
  3. Thanks Jim. I’ll check that out.
  4. Wow the quilt is beautifully pieced and your quilting is amazing! Very inspiring work by both of you. Hope your friend is well soon.
  5. Ready to bind!

    Thank you all for the kind comments! It all done and ready to wrap. It really was a fun quilt to make and to quilt. AnnP I love the charity quilts you’ve been making. Those would be a fun “I spy” quilts for kids to enjoy. Everyone have a Merry Christmas !
  6. Finally finished quilting my sister’s Christmas present! Now to trim, label, and bind and I’ll be ready for Christmas. Hope she likes it. She’s a big gardener and she cans a lot. I don’t recommend a lot of color changes when you’re in a hurry. Newbie mistake I’m sure. Merry Christmas everyone!
  7. Liberty machine

    Wow! I will definitely get the grounding kit when I get my wheels. Going to order them soon so thank you for the valuable information
  8. Liberty machine

    Thanks for the advice Nigel. I didn’t realize I could raise the rollers so I would not lose quilting area. Yeah! Anyone have a ruler base they would like to sell?? I’m really green so forgive me but what is a grounding kit? Thanks
  9. Liberty machine

    I bought a used Liberty machine in June of this year. So far I really like it. I had a little buyer’s remorse at first as I really had my heart set on a 26” throat machine. But for my first machine it’s been great. I have a lot to learn and need to work on pretty much everything. I plan on taking her in for a spa treatment and purchasing the M and M wheels then I think I’ll bet set for quite a while. My intention it to keep improving and hopefully get good enough to quilt for others. Maybe a new machine when I retire in nine years if I’m able to make a little extra income to pay for a new one. Any one have the ruler base on their Liberty? I want to purchase one but am worried about even less quilting space with the base. Any and all advice is appreciated. I’ve learned so much from all of you over the last several months reading the posts. Thanks to everyone for sharing all of your knowledge and experiences. It makes a newbie like me feel like I can reach out when I get stuck and get good advice. Sorry so long. Merry Christmas! Now back to that quilt for my sister I need to finish by Monday.
  10. I would love to see a picture your set up Jim. I’m a visual person. Would a piece of pvc pipe work in place of the aluminum pipe? Thanks
