    Quilt Planning Ideas

    Thanks Connie! I noticed the same thing and didn't post since I've been privately (and publicly) chastised for speaking up about this type of thing. Quiltster is being beta tested and is a program for placing your fabric choices into Quiltworx (Judy Niemeyer) patterns. Great application and very helpful. She may be trying to help, or she may be a paid poster and finding as many quilting sites as she can to get the word out. Nice to share new stuff, but if it's a good application, word will get out easily and fast.

  2. Hello everyone! I'm hoping you can help me with the best way to plan my next quilt. I am new to quilting and have created but one single quilt so far. I'm ready to start my second but I need your help! If you are willing to share, I'm wondering what tips/tricks you have found to be helpful in planning out your quilts. I'd like to know the best way to plan it out. What have you found to be helpful? Are there any special tools you use? Can you just envision it? (that will take a while or me), do you lay out the fabric on your kitchen table? What do I need to know before stepping in aga

    June, I don't have one of these. Maybe someone with experience of them will chime in. http://rns-design.com/QuiltCam_c_20.html

  6. I received a email yesterday from APQS for Road Show in Minnesota the beginning of June. I can sign up for the Demo on Saturday. I can leave for Minnesota after work on Friday, demo on Saturday and drive home on Sunday. I told my husband about my plan and respond "that sounds great but isn't that the weekend Kristie is getting married". That's okay, it does look like APQS will be at the Madison show or maybe I can make it to another Road Show. It will happen when the time is right. I have been looking at the different brands and have had the opportunity to a few. I haven't had a ch

    I have EQ7 also. Take the time to learn it. There are some training videos in it. It is fun.

  8. If you look at the vendor list for the Madison Expo, APQS is there. Another idea, much sooner than the September show is checked out APQS road shows. They maybe having one near you, and you can get a great deal on new machines. I bought a 2007 Millie about 1 1/2 yrs ago. I upgraded to a Bliss. APQS has great service!

    Thread Brands

    Arielle: Thank you for sharing. With your quality quilting skills, it means a lot. While thread cost is rather minimal in our art form, it does have to be considered. I do not mind paying for things, but wonder at times if I am just paying for a name verses something that makes the product better. I am playing with both of the treads I have mentioned, and will have to quilt more with them to make an informed decision. Thank you again for sharing with us. Take care, and have a wonderful day.

  10. I bought a used Millie about 5 years ago. It was new enough for me to upgrade to bliss after a couple of years. The service is phenomenal even though I am not the original owner of the machine. Easy to use and care for by myself. I have had 2 issues with it over the years. Both fairly minor. One required a new board--it was free to me as it was defective when manufactured. They kept someone at the plant at Carroll until I could drive there after work. I was down one day. The other was a rough spot near my bobbin, shredding thread. I called and Amy talked me through fixing it. I am s
