    More QP work

    First quilt done by a friend, she basically designed it, most of the quilt is Quilt Path, centre design is free-hand. Glide Thread, Invisifill for the centre panel background. I did turn the quilt to do the borders, but it is pretty easy with Leader Grips, so I don't mind. Thanks! Joanne Flamand

    Quilting in the Dark.

    This is my next project when I get back from vacation! Thanks for chiming in. Sometimes my husband comes down and thinks I'm a weirdo - I have all these glorious daytime lights installed, and I'm quilting in the dark.

    Quilt Shop Theft

    You're right about grand larceny. Perhaps shops should post the average cost of their samples with a warning that thieves will be prosecuted. However, this might frighten quilter spouses. They would have posted proof that this hobby is expensive.

    Thank you quilt for Dad

    My dad was instrumental in my purchase of Freddie, loaning me the money to get him. So of course I wanted to have one of the first big quilts be for him. It's a basic jelly roll race quilt made from Moda's Kansas Troubles Quilters fabrics along with a few Civil War reproduction fabrics. Quilter's Dream wool batting, So Fine thread, and Patricia Ritter's Diagonal Plaid panto using the IQ. I didn't have any troubles with quilting it but I did discover that I was holding up the sides of the quilt while it was being quilted on the side. Perhaps I need to look into some of those longer side clamps that are on the market?

    Do you have an APQS Rep close to you? Check with them to see if they offer individual classes. Many of us Do!! Let them know what you are wanting to learn and see if they are willing to work a class around you. We are here to help if we can,....

    Quilting in the Dark.

    I too Quilt in the Dark,...... I have just moved back into my home Studio (Yeah!!!! 5 years in a cramped room was too long) I have overhead lights above my machine that I use when loading,... unloading and maintenance between quilts,.... I also have a row of lights behind me over my Sewing area,..... I turn off the lights over the machine when I am quiltinq and only leave on the lights behind me,.... It casts great shadows and makes small detail work much easier on my aging eyes ;0)

    Quilt Shop Theft

    Maybe if these people ever get caught and charged with the theft and find out the cost of those quilts, it would be Grand Larceny and carry a heavy punishment. Not just some slap on the wrist. Makes me angry.

    Looks like the winners are Sharon and Lucy! Please email me so I can get your choice of prize and a mailing address. lindarech@comcast.net The mistake is in the block to the left of the snowman family. The right upper corner block has a HST that needed turning to complete the pattern. If you found another oopsie, please post so we know where to look! Thanks for playing!

    Oh wait, wait! I looked a second time and found it in .5 seconds. Did you say we couldn't study first?

    Okay, guess I'm the odd man out here but after 3 minutes of looking I can only see one thing that I would have fixed but not sure that's the real mistake or not. ;-) Can't wait for the contest to be done so that I can find out what it was.

    The Millennium is sold. The new owner picked her up yesterday. I am sure she will have hours of quality quilting with the machine.

    Aww, come on, didn't every one of us start somewhere? You needn't have long armed it. You could have suggested she tie it off or quilt it on her own DM. Even explained to her how to do so. None of us are required to take any one's quilt, nor is it a requirement of owning a long arm to police others work. We all started somewhere, and if my memory is right we've all shared how hard/terrible/wonky/wavy our first quilts were. Bottom line, quit cutting down a customer. She is a customer because you chose to take in her quilt. It doesn't matter if it was guilt behind doing so. Either way, you took it, and now you owe her quality. We are not the quilt police, and we have no right to criticize, belittle or shame the hand work of another woman (or man). Whether it's spanking newbie wonky or failing eyesight elderly stitched. And, like you said, someone that knows this young gal will probably read this topic. And pass it on. My heart hurts thinking how she might feel after her heartfelt and handmade gift was critiqued so poorly - and posted for all to see. Not all of us have perfect skills. Nor should we have to. Wasn't it enough that she loved enough to make a quilt for a very special family member and you accepted your part in helping her finish it? This isn't a private little tea party gossip site. This is a very publicly available forum not limited to APQS elite quilters. Sorry to sound so nasty, but have you thought about how degrading some of these comments are coming off? It may help for us to remember this.

    I just use a pair of curved cuticle scissors to pull the threads out, hold, start sewing or tack the thread down, and then clip. Inexpensive and it works.

    Lynne, Do the alignment mark for the next row when it finishes the last row you want to do that day. Then you use it to align when you go back in and chose the row for it to start on. I just painters tape, needle down through it and just leave it on the quilt until I go back downstairs to quilt.

    The Novelty of Quilt Path

    The novelty wears off and you trust the machine and you will sew while it sews. Just give it time. But there are other times you have to babysit her. Shirley

    Mac user wants quilt path

    While many of us have installed Quilt Path on secondary Windows based computers other then our tablets, you do not actually need to do that to use the program. I only did it to make it easier to create blog post about Quilt Path. I do download digital designs to my laptop so that they are scanned by my antivirus. I would do that no matter what operating system I was using to make sure nothing gets onto my Quilt Path tablet since I need it to run my business.
