  1. I have IQ and I think it is really easy to use.
  2. I did the same thing as Gail O but if you take the screw out of the clamps, they will go right through the hole in the OXO bag clamps. I also use Sharon (can't remember last name right now) method of making a leader with a dowel rod that you can pin to the sides and then use the curtain rod and it works great.
  3. I have used it as top thread but I used a 3.5 needle. I really like this thread.
  4. With IQ you can do the no sew zone. If the block is wonky, you can mark the block by clicking around the outside edges of it and fitting your quilting design inside the block. You can adjust the size of the design to fit that wonky block. Plus the easy thing about using the IQ is you can go from manual to computerized quilting in seconds by just touching the screen right in front of you (tablet is mounted on machine head) in seconds.
  5. I have had good luck with putting cornstarch on the oil spot, rubbing it in and then brushing it off.
  6. I have taken my featherweight to classes too. I bought a Phaff passport 2 that I am now using. I got it just before the passport 3 came out. The 3 has a thread cutter that I wish I had on the 2. It has several stitches but I haven't used them. I went to Harbor Freight and bought a rolling tool bag for $20.00 that the sewing machine fits in and it works great. The bag has pockets for the cord and foot control.
  7. I also bought pre-design studio years ago. I haven't upgraded it. It is pretty easy to use and not too expensive.
  8. I don't know if you are computerized or not, but he is one. https://www.digitizedquiltingpatterns.com/shop/category/free-downloads/
  9. I baste the edges on both sides and then just quilt off the edges. Rarely I will catch the edge and it will flip when coming back on the quilt top but this doesn't happen often.
  10. I liked the leadergrips because they were thinner but they also cracked pretty quickly for me so I replaced mine.
  11. I really like it. You did a great job with the quilting too.
