  1. Here's a link to their website. This might help you. I had this software years ago and loved it. I upgraded to Art and Stitch which is easier to use and offers more features but it is more expensive. https://pre-designstudio.com
  2. Wow! Your quilting is fantastic. I don't think you need to practice - you nailed it! Yes, you can practice on customer quilts anytime.
  3. Trudie, do you have the Art and Stitch software program ( http://artandstitch.com ). If you do, you can convert the designs there. If not, it is a process. It has been years since I've had my CompuQuilter, but I would have to take the dxf file into a cad software program (I think it was AutoSketch or AutoDesk or something like that). Also, I believe Ellen Munnich's software, ProQ Designer ( http://pqdesigner.com/index.htm ) could convert the dxf files into cqp files. Good luck!
  4. Great team. Great quilt. Great quilting. What is the name of the panto. I think I need this for my QOVs!
  5. The IQ does the stitch regulation. You set the stitch speed/length. I have a Millie and I have to be sure my stitch regulator is turned off - machine is not beeping. Kueser, I think you are referring to the IQ asking you to set the speed when you first start the sewing process. ORNurse56, I would think that most computerized systems would take care of the stitch regulation, but it would be best to check with the company that manufactures the computer system that you are interested in.
  6. Pamela, you will lose several inches when rolling such a large quilt. When I decide what size to make my panto, I look at the design in "true size" and measure it. You can then determine how it will look on the quilt - measure the quilt and see if you like the size. I probably would size the panto at 12" or less. Also, check your density. Also, "puff" batting will take up more space on the take-up roller than a thinner batting such as Warm and Natural or Hobbs 80/20.
  7. I originally had a 2005 Millie and table. In 2008, APQS came out with a new light and a better location for their on/off switch. I upgraded my head and kept my 2005 table. I don't know about the newest machines, but I assume the head would fit on any table. My system is not blissed as I am computerized and don't do any free-motion quilting and decided I didn't need to spend the money to get the bliss rails. I still have my 2005 table and my 2008 Millie head.
  8. Love how you quilted this. Very nice!
  9. In addition to what Charmaine stated, also be aware of how big the quilt itself is. As you roll the quilt onto the take-up roller, you will lose a little quilting space. Make sure you give yourself enough room to complete the last couple of rows. I decide what size panto I want to do by the quilt itself. Some sizes are just too big for the piecing and will not look just right. Conversely, you don't want to make a panto too small either.
  10. Wow! These are so cute but your quilting is absolutely fantastic. Great job!
  11. Fantastic quilt. You did a wonderful job on the piecing and the quilting. Nice work!
