    Loving my new Addition!

    I'm really enjoying my new addition. She is a beauty! I have been having fun playing with her, and even managed to repair a well loved quilt for my oldest daughter. My first quilts were matching toddler quilts with Minkee backing. I had so much fun free motion quilting these. I have learned a lot about tension, and loved how much easier it was to handle the Minkee on Esther vs. my domestic machine.

    I just saw this pattern in a current magazine! My customer, Karla, is on top of getting her quilts put together, that's for sure. It was a fun one to quilt. Hobbs 80/20 batting and So Fine thread. Thanks for looking. Karlas2013xmasquilt by chrometopquilts, on Flickr karlas2013xmasquiltdetail by chrometopquilts, on Flickr

    Extra batting and backing

    I got one in last week with a half-inch extra on the sides and a whole inch on the ends. When I gave it back after quilting, I left the horrible blue fabric I had sewn on for extensions. She wanted to know what that was for. I explained I needed some extra fabric to grab on to. I told her when she trimmed the quilt, it would go away. I think from the look on her face the information sunk in.

    Loading the quilt

    I have just ordered a Millenium and am wondering if there are videos showing how to load the machine. Nancy E. N. Minnesota

    Loading the quilt

    Kimmy Brunner has a YouTube video on loading that is good. Different machine but same exact principle. You should get some videos with your new machine, too. I am sure there are many other YouTubes besides Kimmy's as well. Welcome to the forum and congratulations on your new machine!

    Microwave bowl question

    I used two pieces of batting like several of you. Marci - what a wonderful idea to have the kids make some.

    Cindy, I use my Singer Magic Press 4 (I've had it 25+years; bought it to press my husband's pants!) It doesn't use steam, so I cover the graphics with a press cloth and spritz with water, then press. It gives a nice crisp finish to the tshirt blocks.

    You did a wonderful job on this one, Cindy! The flame panto is a perfect finish. Doug's wife is sure to get much comfort from being surrounded by such warm memories and your caring friendship.
