    Maribeth, I remember it, but have never used it in a project.

    Thanks for posting the solution, Meg!

    Cathy, thanks for the information about Quilternatives. I got my last roll of QD wool from Kingsmen, as that was the best price I found at the time, but Quilternatives's price is a LOT cheaper! Just ordered a new roll, since my last one is gone. Quilternatives beat both Kingsmen and Batt-mart. Love the Forum members!
  4. I don't have QP, but I know there is a QP Facebook group that may be able to help you. Good luck!

    Good job, Zeke! Your perseverance paid off.
  7. Saw a picture on FB where the quilt was clipped onto the bars of the longarm. Poster said the clips were the Grace Start Right clips. Anyone heard of these before and/or used them? Seem like they could be handy. They are made by the Grace Company: https://www.graceframe.com/en/product/quilt-clips. TIA for your input!
  8. Deb, so sorry you had this problem, but really appreciate you sharing this information with the rest of us. Hope your son's quilt looks good enough that it doesn't bug you every time you look at it, especially since you did such a nice job on it. Betsy
  9. Beautiful quilting! Your sisters are very lucky.
  10. Very fun! I think the letters are great, and the lucky recipient will love it.
  11. Have you checked to make sure your leaders are square?

    Bobbin tension

    If your bobbin thread is pulling to the top, you need to loosen, not tighten, your top tension. Also, make sure your quilt is not too tight on your frame. Do you have a Towa bobbin tension gauge? That really made getting then tension right a lot easier for me.
  13. I agree with Jim. If I only need a straight stitch, I take my Featherweight. For anything else, I have to lug my "youngest" machine, my 1984 Bernina 930, and it is HEAVY!
