1 pointWhen I was thinking about getting an APQS machine, I test drove a Millie without bliss. I didn’t like it. I couldn’t make round feathers. They were flat. My mid arm, which was heavier moved much smoother and my feathers were round. I went to a road show that had machines with the bliss tables and that made all the difference. I purchased a Millie with bliss. Deb.
1 pointHi, I would try loosening the quilt sandwich a bit.....I do believe you want it so all three layers are flat....but you can still see the base of the machine moving ...kinda of like a little mole crawling under there....I usually like it so the top of the quilt looks flat.....but not snug so there is little stretch on the actual fabric...there are some tips on this board and on the APQS website....I would look under "loading the quilt"...for ideas on how snug you want it.....as usually...more experts will probably chime in....Lin
1 pointAren't classes awesome! I took 5 of 6 classes/lectures Judi offered at the Utah quilt show a few years ago. It was the first time I had done classes at a quilt show and I got so much out of it and had such a great time, I vowed to do it again ASAP! I am registered for some classes at the Canadian National quilt show with Kathleen Riggins at the end of May. Can't wait!
