  2. I do this all the time and use my serger to sew the two pieces together....no problem with the seam and i use Hobbs 80/20 batting with minky.
  3. I wish i had walked away....mailed a quilt back to a customer in Indiana and forgot to stipple around one of the butterflies in a very busy Quilt....the darn thing was on my frame for a week and i wanted it gone...wish i had walked away and finished it the next day....i feel like a complete A**
  4. Thanks Heidi....they were showing last night. Have to get familiar with this forum format again to find out how to post pictures and or delete my posts....lol
  5. I just cant upload the pictures... Sorry, thought to share this beautiful quilt.
  6. Post deleted....posted same one twice...sorry
  7. I put some anti skid fabric on clean rollers and tie strapped that. Cleaned the brake of all clue residue and i am very happy with the results. Should it become necessary to replace it, no big deal, have lots of tie straps and shelf liner, and it looks nice and clean.
  8. I have a metal brake...so cannot staple velcro to brake...i don't roll without releasing brake, but do like a tight sandwich.....i might give the shelf liner a go. I seem to spend too much time cleaning roller with goo gone and repositioning velcro only to do it again soon after. Thanks for your input.
  9. Hello friends, long time no see. Hope you are all well and stitching happily along. I have a problem in that the velcro on my break keeps coming off. I attach it again, clean all the clue from the roller, but to no avail. I had the same problem with my previous frame. I know i am not unique to this and wonder what others have done to solve this problem. I am actually thinking of glueing the velcro right to the roller....when i can find some that width. Thanks and happy Saturday.
  10. I started with one and got rid of it at bargain price after 2 weeks of utter frustration. The lady buying my Freedom has a Pfaff grand quilter...same this, different name, and has nothing but frustration with it. Some do "okay" with it, but more often than not "you get what you pay for". i suggest she does a lot of test driving to make sure it works good. these machines are not "long/short/mid arm quilting machines". JMHO
  11. I pick up my Quilts at a Quilt store and leave the owner intake sheets and other information, Many of the Quilters I quilt for I never get to see as everyone is kinda spread out over a big area. i drive 6 hours to pick up and deliver quilts. So these Ladies write their info on the sheets and also sign them and give me permission to post their pictures on a website or wall or whatever. I get in touch with them when I get to their Quilt by phone or e-mail with pictures of patterns and thread and designs and we discuss particulars and it's been working great so far. When I am done, I print an invoice with my Quickbooks , they get a copu and I attach a copy to the intake sheet for my records. Like Linda, I am so amazed that my cstomers trust their beautiful work to someone they never met, but here you go...the power of word of mouth is awesome! And the ...Your Work is amazing!...makes me blush, because when I see what some of you put out, well, I am light years behind! But I still love what I do and I know I am getting more and more advanced every day.
