  7. Working on a dresden plate in between painting my daughters bedroom - can't wait to show it! In the mean time my birthday is coming up and I've already asked the Husband for a few long arm rulers. I'd like a cross hatch ruler, a straight/ditch ruler, one or two circles, and something for applique. I think these are enough to get me started as I've already wished I had one or all of them while in the middle of a quilt! My questions are: #1 - Marci (whitepinesquilter) is a huge sweet heart and sent me one of those little white adapters to try out on my Ultimate 1 hopping foot...thank you SO much Marci!!! I'm particularly excited because I was hoping this would allow me to use Deloa's appliguide ruler. Has anyone tried the ruler with an adapter on their foot? #2 - I can really only afford one cross hatch ruler at this time - what size would you say you use most often? #3 - Circle rulers seem REALLY expensive and hard to find in single sizes rather than sets. Anyone have suggestions for affordable circle rulers I could buy maybe one or two of at a time? I have seen the nesting circles on quilters rule but they look like they might be difficult to hold on to. I can't thank you all enough for all of your willingness to share and offer suggestions and help!!! I have only had my long arm about a month and you all have made me feel so welcome and comfortable and it has just made the whole experience wonderful. I think I would have been AWFULLY discouraged if I had not had all of you to talk to and look to for advice.
  8. Oh my gawsh!!! Finally!!! I am so happy I finally have something that resemble decent feathers!!! I would never use these on anything, I mean they are just goofing around practice feathers, but what I'm thrilled about is finally getting back to the spine!!! James if you're reading - it was car wax!!! Watched the dvd that came with our old machines and we can use car wax on our old aluminum frames. It made a world of difference!!! I'm going to make this a routine for each quilt...clean wheels and wax to clean the rails/track, not sure what it's called. Anyhow posting a picture of the peacock feather that I LOVE LOVE LOVE and the wompely feathers just to show the progress. If you've been following my posts...today marks TWO WEEKS since I brought my APQS Ultimate 1 home. I am SO SO SO SO SO happy!!! - Valerie
  9. I have a few questions!! Do I need a special style of micro drive handles for my machine because it is older? I am doing well with most shapes but my biggest struggle is the spine of feathers and retracing down the line I create for feathers. Would micro drive handles help me with this? I'm also a fan of tiny pebbling and it seems I can only create GIANT pebbles well with my machine as it is. LOL* I am planning to use these without stitch regulation...anyone who's done that have any tips? I'm a little nervous because I'll have to "go" with one hand when I start. Thanks!!
  10. I just finished this top - it's my fourth since getting my machine. I'm so excited! I can see such a huge improvement. Those feathers are still a struggle but these are worlds better and I think just forcing myself to do them even if they are ugly is the trick. I also need to plan where they start a little better. I'm getting there, thrilled to see the improvement! What would you do for your quilts - would you use a more blending thread for the feathers? I love the texture of this thread for the paisley but the feathers...ugh...would a different thread help? I used Isacord - I have two or three shades of So Fine! but nothing dark enough to really blend in...maybe I should have waited.
