  1. With my last quilt, I had to push the blue start button about three times, before it would take off; it would take one stitch and then stop. I have a 2010 Millie. Everything else is working fine. I checked the service videos and don’t see an adjustment. Is my mushroom handle going bad? Thanks for the help.
  2. Thank you, Georgene. I have tried this button, but it appeared to have confused the system. I will try again. I am very new at this, so probably did something else wrong as well.
  3. what is the Facebook page for APQS quilt path? I searched and it does not come up. Thank you! I found the answer -- thanks!
  4. Is it possible to program Quilt Path in EZ or Basic, to quilt multiple rows without stopping after each row? We have not seen it mentioned in the first three YouTube lessons, and don't see the option on the menu. Thanks for your help!
  5. I recently bought a new pack of needles for my Millie from a local longarm supplier (not APQS), and want to make sure they are the correct type. The yellow opened pack are the needles I am using now. The unopened black pack is new. Thank you for your help! Joan
  6. Well, after viewing Sharon's video, I realized that I do use a similar handmade board -- a big board. But I have had it for about 10 years, so I wonder if it is too hard because perhaps the batting has squished down from so much use. It does seem like the wrinkles happen because the area over seams is thicker than the center of the patches, so the bottom of the iron only presses the areas with the thickest widths, if that makes sense.
  7. That is a good suggestion, Sue. I'll take a look at what Sharon uses.
  8. I haven't heard of wrinkle eraser spray. The wrinkling happens more with thinner fabrics, but not necessarily inexpensive. It does happen with regular weight fabrics too. I wonder if it is my iron. Maybe I need to set the steam at a lower setting.
  9. He could use grid paper to draw the human forms, and then methodically go thru each square, deciding what color it will be and if it is a full sqare or half-square triangle, then piece it.
  10. Okay, so sometimes the seams on quiltops need to be pressed a different direction or the top needs pressing in general. No steam does not do the job even at the hottest setting, however steam wrinkles the fabric as shown here, especially on thinner fabrics. The customer is allergic to starch. What do you do to avoid or fix this problem? Thanks.
  11. It was not me that was looking, as I already have a QZ. It was a friend, and I was pass the word along that two are available via this forum. Thanks and best wishes to you both.
  12. Beautiful quilting, as always, Ardelle. I love the piecers fabric choices and the pattern, also.
  13. I received the following response from the owners of the Quiltzaoid, regarding why the spiro is no longer listed on the website: On Sun, Mar 17, 2013 at 11:55 AM, Linda Anderson wrote: > Joan, > > We did take the spiro off our website and it has been discontinued. There are no issues with the product and we will always stand behind it. It was a business decision, the main supplier of some of the components of the spiro raised their prices and it was enough that we didn't feel we could pass those increases on to our customers. > > Maybe we will be able to offer it aga
  14. Hi Vicki, I could see quilting on each swag, in the center and all in matching blue thread, the orange flower head found in the center of the quilt, plus about three simple leaves. It would tie the swags into th design of the quilt top.
  15. Wow, Anne! The glorified ninepatch block caught my eye, too. I love the way your quilting brings out the piecing and texture. Looks like it was well worth the effort!
  16. That panto looks perfect on that quilt, Valerie. I am impressed that you did it without stitch regulation!!
