    Cute! Congratulations on your new Lenni.
  4. I don't know anything about the Innova computer system, but I have had both a QuiltPath and and IntelliQuilter and I say get the IntelliQuilter. It is a phenomenal system, easy to learn, can do everything, and the service people are top-notch. There are lots of videos and info at iqdemos.com . There are also several groups you can join before you purchase your system. This is a big plus because if I had had all this information prior to my QuiltPath purchase I would have made a better decision for me.
  5. I have 20 notifications from real strange email addresses. There is nothing but links which I will not click on. I also noticed that in my Profile, my email address is something weird - all numbers and definitely not my email address. How do I clear these notifications out of my file. Also, I need to change my email address back but it says I will need to re-activate my account. Will I be able to use my same name, etc.?
  6. The only software program I would recommend at this time is Art and Stitch with the embroidery module. I use it for digitizing. It is so much easier and better than AutoSketch. Here is a link to the website -- http://artandstitch.com The Plus version is the one that has both the quilting and embroidery module. This is a great company with great software. The other software package I am familiar with for digitizing is by Floriani - https://florianisoftware.com . It is also a fantastic program, but I think Art and Stitch is slightly easier. Take a look at both of them.
  7. When I owned QuiltPath, I was told to send the design to the stitch out page and then go get a cup of coffee. I found this entire system quite cumbersome and slow. Even when it was stitching out, I found the fastest speed to be a crawl compared to what I could do when I owned a CompuQuilter. I now own an IntelliQuilter and will never go back. There is a major difference in the systems. I hope you can get your slowness problems fixed but I really believe (this is my own personal opinion) that the Windows Surface Pro tablets that are used for the QuiltPath are not powerful enough to run the soft
  8. Mercedes, I know nothing about the geography of Washington, but I was just on the IQ website and found 1 dealer in Washington. You might want to call him and see where he is located and maybe he can give you a demo and answer your questions. He says he installs on all brands. The person who installed my IQ sells Gammills but he works on all brands so don't let the fact that he is a Nolting, A-1 specialist stop you from contacting him. Good luck!

  9. Mercedes, my personal opinion is that you really need to check out the IQ. It makes the 2 things that you are wanting to do very easy. It has been several years since I've owned my QuiltPath, but I could not do either of these things when I had it. I fought with the QuiltPath every step of the way but there are others who have done amazing quilting with theirs. Hopefully, QuiltPath has upgraded both their software and hardware over the past couple of years, but I have heard nothing as no one seems to talk about it. Where are you located? There is an MQX Show coming up in Sept.in Springfield,
  10. There are lots of posts here comparing the 2 systems. I have owned both and my personal feeling is that the IQ is a much better, robust, system. Do a search for the terms "QuiltPath" , "IQ", and "IntelliQuilter". I am sure you will be able to read all the comparisons and reviews. Definitely do your own research and hands-on testing prior to making your decision. I took someone's word for the QuiltPath and I later I found that it wasn't the system for me as I "think" differently than how the QuiltPath is programmed to do things.
  11. Be sure you have the stitch length selected. It might not move if you haven't done this.
  12. Fantastic. I love everything about this quilt, especially your quilting choices.
  13. David, this looks fantastic. Enough room to do some piecing, a beautiful view to sit and have your coffee, and fun music. Sounds like it was a fantastic time!
  14. I have a Janome Jem Platinum 760 which is a great little machine for classes. It is light weight, has multiple stitches, and sews perfectly. I have a medium Tutto bag and I stuff it with most of what I need to take as the sewing machine is really doesn't take up much space in the bag. I put a light, sewing supplies, patterns, small rulers and cutting mats, a pillow to sit on, several bottles of water, and more into the case. I think the machine only weighs about 12 lbs. I have also seen the newer http://www.eversewn.com machines which I think would be a great inexpensive machine to take t
  15. I love them. They are both gorgeous and fun! Congratulations on the well-deserved ribbons.
  16. Ann, your quilt looks great. Your controlled scrappy look is perfect. I also really like your quilting design. Great job!
  17. I'm not sure, but I think you need more of a digitizing program such as Art and Stitch or some other graphic program. If you can save the design as a .dxf, you might then be able to get it to your partner and get it converted to a .pat file. EQ8 is more of a program for designing quilts not digitized designs.
  18. This is a really cute quilt and your cross hatching looks great. I love all the different fabrics used on Sue's dresses!
  19. Your ruler work looks great. Can't wait to see the finished quilt.
  20. Wow! You did a fantastic job. I wasn't impressed with the before picture, but you make this quilt really pop. Congratulations on a job well done. This is now a beautiful quilt.
