  1. I just got my EQ8 and really haven't had a lot of time to play with it yet but from what I've seen, it is a much easier program to use and learn. It seems to have a lot of new features. I think the upgrade from 7 is definitely going to be worth it.
  2. I have owned a Quilt Path and I now have an Intelliquilter. I personally feel that the IQ is a superior product. There are learning curves to both systems, but I think the IQ is easier to operate and has many great features that the QP does not have. Your friend really needs to try each system out himself to see what one would be best. I found that the QP does not "think" the same way I do but the IQ was more in line with me.
  3. This quilt is amazing and I absolutely love how you quilted it. Beautiful!
  4. I live in Phoenix. Several years ago my husband and I decided to drive down to Tucson for the Rusty Barns (official name is the Craft and Sewing Show) show and check it out. The entire show was depressing compared to the Rusty Barns show we have in Phoenix at the end of January every year. It is a much smaller show in a dark and dingy very old convention center. It was probably between ¼ and 1/2 the size of the Phoenix show. However, there was an APQS dealer from California there. I don't think she had much traffic coming to talk to her as we spent quite a bit of time talking to her and no one
  5. Glad you were able to figure out what to do to get this quilted and keeping it square. Great job!
  6. Cagey, your label is great. Congratulations again on a job well done. Also, I want to thank you for your service to our country.
  7. Your niece made a wonderful quilt. It is hard to believe that this is her first quilt. She also did a great job with her quilting. Cudos to both you and her on a job well done.
  8. This is a wonderful program. This media specialist definitely sounds like someone special. Thank you for honoring her and all the vets that she has brought to the school. Your quilt is wonderful and I'm sure will be greatly loved.
  9. Terry, that is absolutely adorable. I love the cat and the bat. You make some of the cutest pieces. I think I spy a little spider quilted in near the bottom! Cute, cute, cute!
  10. Connie, I love your idea of charging a one-time special design charge if you have to purchase a design for the customer. Thanks for sharing that.
  11. Thank you for sharing this statute. I have heard of it and hope to one day be able to see it in person. Your picture is the best one I have seen. Sorry to hear of all your medical problems. I hope you continue to heal and feel better soon. Getting older definitely is not for the weak!
  12. The real big quilt show is the International Quilt Festival in Houston. It is coming up in November ... I have never been but dream of getting there one day.
  13. Lovely quilt and the design is perfect. I make a lot of QOV quilts and this pattern would be perfect. Do you know who made the design?
  14. Thanks for the name. I love the look of these quilts. Another one to add to my "To Do List" which is growing ever longer by the day!
  15. I don't know if this really has a name. It is just a simple eight-pointed star inside another eight-pointed star. How big is this quilt? It definitely looks bigger than just a block. If anyone has a name, I'd love to know because I also see this everywhere.
  16. A service person I have used is Ron Paul. He is located in northern California and travels to several states. He comes to Arizona every Spring for Spring Training and makes the rounds working on any and all systems. He is a Gammill and IQ dealer but he knows all the machines. I really like the work he does. If you are interested in learning more about him, his phone number is 406-550-9026. His email address is . I don't know what his schedule is and where he is going to be but if you are interested, let him know you are interested in getting your machine serviced and see wh
  17. Please do a search on this forum for this exact topic. I have posted several very detailed messages comparing both systems as I have owned both. I now use the IntelliQuilter and would never go back to the QP. IQ is a great system that is easy to learn and use. Here is a link to one of my posts (you might have to scroll down to the bottom of the thread to see my remarks ...
  18. Oh Mary Beth, I can so relate to this. I was tutored almost every night in my junior year in high school to get me through my algebra course - that was the last course in math I had to have! When I was in college and took an accounting course, I barely passed my final exam because not one of my columns on the 10 column worksheet balanced. All my numbers were in the proper spot but I couldn't add up all the numbers - remember this was long before adding machines/calculators were allowed in the classroom. I didn't have enough time (or fingers) to do the math. About 15-20 years ago my husba
  19. Annie, this is a fantastic quilt and your quilting is over the top! Absolutely wonderful quilt and quilting
  20. Oh, one thing I forgot to mention is the I do put a (sometimes 2) Magic Genie Bobbin washer (the little size for "L" bobbins) in the bobbin case. I do take the spring out of the case first. This lets the paper glide smoothly.
  21. Gorgeous quilt. Your quilting is fantastic. This quilt definitely deserves all the ribbons and Best of Show.
  22. Glad to hear you are okay. I heard from my sisters in Tampa this morning. They stayed home and are okay. Neither house received any damage. I am very thankful that the storm went north and didn't slam into Tampa. I hope everyone else in Irma's path is safe.
  23. I use rewound bobbins with paper all the time. I have no problem and don't usually do anything differently. Do test your tension before you start quilting as sometimes the bobbins are wound slightly tighter than other times.
