    I think we have all had to do that on a quilt at one time, not fun at all.

    mamu got a reaction from SusanH. in Quilt Size??   
    I have a 12 foot table and this size quilt would take up all the space on the machine and still have room for the machine to move about on the ends.  I do not think you can quilt this size of a quilt on a 10 foot table.

    a quilt is a WORK OF ART .  When sleeping under a Quilt you are Covered with LOVE.  A blanket is a single woven item made mostly made from synthetic fibers.

    I love striped bindings.  I made one once for a red and white quilt, really set the quilt off I thought.  The judges didn't seem to like it much though...however, that was 20 yrs ago so I'm thinking I was just ahead of things a bit.  The quilt sold and has been displayed in several places.

    mamu got a reaction from Beachside Quilter in pre-wound vs pre-wound vs self-wound   
    I had all sorts of problems with the self wound bobbins and tension on my ULT2.  I went to the Magna bobbins (prewound) and have never looked back!   There are times when I might have to take a little of the thread off the prewound or I might get a bobbin that just isn't working quite right....this doesn't happen very often however.

    I've had to ban my quilts from the longarm room!  
    Yes, they found the canvas on the rollers to great areas to pull themselves back and forth on while sliding on the table.
    Yes, the hanging batting seemed to be great hide and seek area and I ended up with three huge holes in the batting.  
    Yes, the comfort of a quilt on the frame was too much to resist and became a nice sleeping area.  
    Yes, thread hanging down seemed to be 'alive' and was  chewed, pulled and tangled.  
    SO.... if you can find a way to keep your cats from doing all of the above, then you won't have any problems.

    mamu got a reaction from dbustle in New Owner of an Ultimate II   
    I have an ULT11 and one thing that I figured out right away is that the foot height needs to be higher than a 'normal' machine.  Since the ULT11 machines do not have a hopping foot and just 'scoots' along the top of the fabric, you can get bunching at the end of a row.  Also, trying to go over any seams is a real issue if you do not have your foot height higher.  So, the rule of a business card for height does not apply to this machine.  To adjust the height, you might have to actually move the whole foot bar up and that means opening up the side panel of your machine for this adjustment.  I might take a couple of adjustments to get the height just where you need it.
    Once I got my foot adjusted higher I did not have issues with the bunching or the problem of fabric being pushed ahead of the foot.  Also, it helps with the seam issues too.

    mamu got a reaction from RoseCity Quilter in Batting poking through on the back of my quilt   
    I have had this issue with several quilts and varied battings.  Sometimes it is the backing fabric, sometimes the needle size, sometimes the batting...when I have it the most is with warm & natural batting.  I try to make sure that the 'dirty' side is facing up and that helps some, but if the backing fabric is batik I will find that I can still have pokies showing.  Very frustrating and I would like to know if anyone has some TIPS that they would like to share so this doesn't happen?????
