  1. I love the bag and the colors you picked are wonderful. I have that pattern and haven't taken the time to make it.
  2. One side of the zipper stays on the leaders all the time. My set of zippers has 3 zippers. So you could unzip the quilt and put another on to work. I only used two (take up leader and backing).
  3. The zippers separate so one side of the zipper is sewn to your leader and it stays there. You attach the other part of the zipper to your backing and zip the two parts together. I hope this makes sense. I have a set of 3 for a 14 foot table that I would sell since I only use a system like Red Snappers now.
  4. Are you using IQ or quilt path?
  5. I would like to know the directions for playing the Quilters' Strip Poker. We play the left, right, center game at our retreats and I would like something new to try. Thanks,
  6. You might want to list where you are located.
  7. I went to Lowes and had them cut me a 17 1/2 inch square of plexiglass. I use it to square up these embroidery blocks so that they fit together and ignore the stitching lines. They usually are not printed correctly.
  8. I have an older Babylock Ellegante and it has a knee lift. So you might find a used machine.
  9. That is such a cute quilt and your quilting is outstanding.
  10. It looks great on your bed. I think you should keep it. LOL You both did a great job on this quilt.
  11. I think Joanns sells this. It came on a 60 inch roll. It is stiff but my millie liked it. Good luck.
  12. Yes, I have IQ on my milli. I had it on a 2007 model and traded up my machine, I think in 2014. I took it off the 2007, sold that machine and then put it on the new one (also upgraded to super motors). I love how easy it is to use. I don't use all of the capabilities because I don't do custom work. That is about to change because I want to do some custom on some tops that I have been saving. I took IQ to demo to some friends that had quilt path and they thought my system is easier to use. I can't say anything about quilt path because I have never used it.
  13. That is so cute and you did a fantastic job quilting it.
  14. I have a milli and haven't had problems with it. I also have IQ software and I love it. It is easy to use and the updates are free.
  15. I don't have videos but it is super easy to use and if you have IQ computer on your machine, you can clean them up easily.
  16. I have IQ and I think it is really easy to use.
  17. 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.
  18. I have used it as top thread but I used a 3.5 needle. I really like this thread.
  19. 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.
  20. I have had good luck with putting cornstarch on the oil spot, rubbing it in and then brushing it off.
  21. 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.
  22. I also bought pre-design studio years ago. I haven't upgraded it. It is pretty easy to use and not too expensive.
