    Thanks everyone! I’m very comfortable with edge to edge. Now onto custom quilting.

    No it wasn't pre -washed. It wasn't very well constructed with seams not matching and a pieced backing resulting in a lot of fullness next to the seam. But it turned out great! At least I think it did. As it sewed it really drew in the fullness from the topper and backing.  Once it is washed it will take up the small amount of fullness left in between some of the rows of stitching. Tell me what you think. Please be honest. It doesn't help me if you're not. I'm a big girl and prefer honesty to just making me feel good. I want to improve this craft and can't do that if people aren't honest with me.  Thank you for your help.

    Thank you for your comments. The more I use the machine the more relaxed I get. This was a pantograph called West Wind from My Creative Stitches. Your comments help build my confidence. I appreciate that.

    Thank you. Since I just couldn't figure it out I called APQS. Turns out it was a dumb beginner error! I had watched tutorials to make sure I was threading the machine right and I turned my thread indicator light back on after having it off. What I failed to realize is the tutorial I watched didn't have IQ on it. My indicator light should be off. I turned it back off and voila! I also learned APQS has a 24/7 # to call. Two lessons learned. I won't forget either!

    Well hello all! I purchased an APQS Millie long arm machine. It is set up, I have been through training on the machine and just about through training for the computer. I have gone through everything that came with the machine. My head is now ready to explode!!! But, I'm looking forward to the days ahead when all I have read will make sense when I apply what I have learned. Can't wait to show pics in the coming months.

    Welcome we can't wait to see some of your quilting.  I know your gonna love it!  I used to own a Mille and just loved it.  I had to sell and am going through withdraw this entire year.  I am looking forward to the day I own another one.  There is nothing more enjoyable than quilting for me except my children and grandchildren.
