  1. Is it a Qnique Long Arm Quilting Machine ? you might have to call The Grace Company or look for a Q'nique group on the internet.
  2. This from my local Janome retailer who takes in pre-owned machines. This is in Central Iowa. "The least expensive Janome with a knee lift is over $1000."
  3. Feathered Star Quilt Blocks II is the second Feathered Star block book by Marsha McCloskey. The first, Feathered Star Quilt Blocks I, contains 10 Le Moyne-based designs and has been a wonderful design resource for quiltmakers around the world. In this second book, you ll find patterns for 15 new and traditional grid-based Feathered Star blocks
  4. Here is a link for a support system for the Butler QuiltEZ https://support.quilt-ez.com/category/butler/
  5. I just took my Millie and her 12' table apart to move. It's being stored at the moment till next house is ready. I took her off the table, placed her in her original carton. I have a Bliss table, so I put protective foam over those "rails" so they won't get scratched, dented, etc. I used pipe wrap that just fit the diameter of the Bliss rails - didn't tape them, just fit them over. Wrapped the rollers in muslin and secured. I also carefully wrapped the carriage since it has some of the electronic parts attached. Of course took pix of everything so I can put her back together in a month. You can do this - and it helps to have a second person to help carry those long parts.
  6. What are the colors of the fabrics? Is there a panel as part of the kit? Here's one titled Follow Your Heart with Moda fabrics. http://www.everythingquilts.com/browseproducts/Moda-Follow-Your-Heart-Fabric---Feature-Panel.html
  7. And of course I recently renewed my subscription !
  8. How fun David. Makes me want to get a camper and go wandering . . .hmmm A couple of years ago I read an article about a quilting instructor who bought a large RV and put her Millie in it. Was traveling across the country teaching, and decided "why not?" Always had some place to stay when she spent a few days teaching at a guild, etc.
  9. Go to the APQS website - https://www.apqs.com/shopping-tools/ready-to-buy/locate-retailer/ There are six APQS dealers in Texas, the closest are Austin and Houston. There's a link to the home page at the top of the forum as well. Welcome to the APQS family of quilters. You'll find lots of support from APQS and from the quilters here on the forum.
  10. Oh what memories! I've been to shows with "bed turning", and they're always so interesting - the stories the quilts tell. Thanks for sharing.
  11. Quilt EZ Perfect Stitch which is their stitch regulator One of my friends just had it installed on her Ultimate I. She's here in Iowa, the Repr is in Kansas City area. I'm sure there are other Reprs in other areas/states. QuiltEZ.com
  12. Make sure the mounting is secure and tight. I had my motor loosen up and nearly fall off the shaft one time. I make sure I check to make sure the rubber teeth are tight when I check all the nuts and bolts during complete cleaning maintenance times.
  13. Getting it ready for the new Millie, huh
  14. Probably used the thicker walled PVC pipe. I noticed that the "foot" portion is a bit longer/wider than the diameter of the roll of batting - would ensure the whole thing doesn't tip over. As Connie says - "genius" idea.
  15. Beautiful Eric. May the quilt give your daughter much comfort during her healing.
  16. Check with a Babylock dealer for the correct price - a new one used to cost arount $15,000.00!   Perhaps you meant $11,000??

  17. The Mountain Top Quilting website shows it under their piecing patterns. Is that the shop you found the kit? https://www.mountaintopquilting.com/collections/piecing-patterns
  18. I keep the aluminum bobbins on hand - ordered from APQS. I also have a few steel bobbins that came with the machine, but have never used them.
  19. My opinion only - - if the lower quality battings have any cotton seeds, and you hit one of those with your machine - possibility of breaking a needle. That would be the issue for me.
  20. W&N sometimes has cotton seeds/pieces that your needle may hit, or that may be felt through the backing. Perhaps that is what quilters are referencing. I've used it for many quilts and have had no issues except for some bearding at times. It's not my favorite, but I quilt many charity quilts for my church's missions and the lower cost of W&N helps us make more quilts. For personal quilts I use QD, and usually their wool batting.

  22. I suggest looking at both company's websites, look at the components that make up each basic system and the boards each of them have to offer. I have and use boards from both Michael (CL) and Ron (RnS) . You can also call and visit with them to find out more about each of their products. It's all good
  23. R & S boards are good too. They're smaller and lighter. I have several and use them with my CL system; requires a different R & S stylus as the grooves are a different size. As a comparison, with my CL large boards I have three across on the table - five R & S boards to cover the same length.
  24. Yes they are certainly in business. If there's a question about the pricing, just send a message to Michael and he'll respond. He responded to me a week ago re one of the long boards. loricles@loriclesquilting.com
