  1. Yes I saw that...still a lot of $$$$....Canadian Exchange rate makes it so much more expensive right now...
  2. LUCEY is in Toronto... She is looking for a used Quilt Path if you are thinking of selling one, please send me a message..
  3. I tried to use the email you gave but it tells me email is not valid... i am interested in some pantos not all as I have many of them already...let me know if you are breaking them up... Tella at (@) rogers.com
  4. I don't know the name of the pattern...I can find out... or how much the tickets are..show is not until November and I did not pick up tickets at the last meeting...
  5. Here is the latest quilt I just completed for one of the guilds I belong to...the quilt will be raffled off at our November quilt show so I decided to do some custom quilting to really make it pop...It includes lots of ruler work, ditch work, a bit of curved ruler work with pebbles and ribbon swirls...in the solid areas and feathers in the remaining areas...I love the way it turned out and hopefully it will help sell some raffle tickets for our charity...
  6. Love the combo of straight lines and feathers...looks great!
  7. It is absolutely beautiful with exquisite quilting? What issue of McCalls has the pattern?
  8. I love the quilt...Gorgeous design and nice panto choice...LUCEY did a great job...
  9. Thanks Cagey, I put the 2 amp in there...the one I removed was 3.15...but what got me confused was why did I have 4 packages of 2amp...and Dawn does say 2 amp...??? I rechecked the manual...it doesn't mention Lucey..and it is a bit unclear...not sure about the sentence right after United Stated...(missing punctuation....a period ) does that sentence refer to LUCEY? My dear LUCEY is not mentioned, only Lenni...
  10. Hello, My LUCEY blew another fuse today...I checked the manual ...which says for LUCEY you need 3.15 or 4 amp 250 volt....but when I checked my stash (I had purchased extras last time this happened)...I realized they are all 2 amp?? Not 3.15... Then I checked the thread I started when I his happened in 2013 and see that Dawn said it should be 2 amp...I put in a 2 amp...but want to be sure it won't cause any damage... if anyone can clarify ...I would appreciate it before I buy 3.15 amp as I went to the Source..in Toronto...and they don't carry 3.15 any more...none at Canadian T
  11. Love the picture...the machine is adorable..too bad you don't have it anymore...
  12. I have read some charge per seam when backing needs to be pieced together...$10 per seam....
  13. I spent the day at Quilt Canada today and stopped in at the APQS booth where I brought this issue up with Matt Sparrow....who tells me it is perfectly normal for the line to be off ...and as you advance the quilt the fabric shrinks in a bit...and the panto will be off...I understand what he was saying and it makes sense but mine always shifts more to one side than the other...
  14. Thank you again...I have seen Kim Brunner method of straightening out the leaders...on occasion, I have pinned my 2 canvasses together, rolled and re rolled and even left them overnight...they never really were that bad...at least I thought...since my machine is from 2012 and for the first couple years wasn't used hard at all... The only part I didn't see the need for was the pressing and restitching a new hem but I may have to go thru the process again and really check it... Like Heidi I am only having this problem on really big quilts...but I want it to go away... Mamaahma, so glad this
  15. Thanks everyone for the good advice...I haven't checked in for a couple of days and just read the recent posts... Heidi...I don't have fabric advance...but I think you are right...even when advancing manually I feel one side is slightly tighter...tonight I just loaded a backing ...right side rolled tighter....so I just rolled my hands around the fabric until I got the same amount on tension... Jim....if I pin selvages to rollers I don't worry too much about sides stacking exactly one in top on other..they usually won't unless someone has been extremely careful to square up sides... Debbie,
  16. Bonnie, I have also narrowed it down to maybe the laser moving ever so slightly too...it has to be the only thing...in fact a couple of times I have ever so slightly adjusted the laser myself... I am going to do a little experimenting with this on the next quilt to see if I can figure this all out...I must be slow...lol...but I am getting on the bottom of this... Thanks for your input...
  17. No the panto design is slightly off, in this particular case by the time I advanced near the end of the 112 inch quilt it was off by 2 inches...but again, the sides were always lined up perfectly with my marker tape I had placed...so that is why I am confused
  18. Plum purple, I'm in the basement so I don't think my floor is level...but ...if my quilt is on square at the beginning ....it should be since I use the channel lock and make a straight line I'm assuming it's square...then I mark sides with painters tape ...and I mark at specific intervals....and it seems to travel down square...yet my panto seems to decrease on one side and increase on the other... This has me puzzled.. There is a reason...I just can't figure it out...
  19. I just finished a king quilt 101 by 112 Panto Floated the top When I started quilting I had 50.5 inches on either side of my middle...( I have two measuring tapes attached to the bar that would normal attach to my top) I also added painters tape to mark the sides and added tape at intervals to make sure it was remaining straight each time I advanced Each time I advanced to the next row...the sides were lined up along the painters tape ...BUT, it seemed that the top was shifting to the left ...(if standing at the panto side) so by the end I was about two inches off with my design...yet it
  20. Do you have any of the pantos left I am looking for Baptist fan in particular... Thanks, Tella
  21. I am so impressed with the support and the great staff...thanks...
