    caddyhomes got a reaction from redhotmama in Help for My Leaders, Please   
    I rolled out the leaders to the bar and found that my machine had huge gobs of glue holding the leaders to the bar on one side, and none on the other, causing uneven rolling everytime of course.  I removed all the glue, and some paint, reattached the leader squared with duct tape, and rerolled.  I haven't had a problem since.  Dawn says to give the canvas a good stretch one way and another after every quilt is removed.  A habit I have now gotten into as well.

    caddyhomes got a reaction from dianne31331 in Quilt shifts to the right during pantograph use   
    As I stitch a large quilt using a pantograph, I notice that consistently the layers, even though I know I have them squared on the rollers, shift to the right when standing at the back of the machine.   I consistently am starting the right side of each pantograph row further into the right and ending on the left side before I've reached what was the original marked start.   The quilt is pulling to the right each time I advance it even though I mounted it squarely.    What am I doing incorrectly?

    Crosshatching can be done on a 45 degree or any angle.  I have made two large right triangles of fabric to match the angle I choose, sew one to the top left and one to the bottom right corner of the quilt top, creating a new rectangle,  mounting the quilt so that I can use the lock on my machine to stitch a perfectly horizontal line across the quilt top but is in fact at 45 or 60 degrees.  Then I remount it to stitch the other line in the crosshatching. It is fast and accurate, but takes time to set up.  Once the set up is done the lines almost stitch themselves on their own.  It works for me - but is a time consuming work of love.
