    Nicholette got a reaction from Kwiltr in Help: Floating Top & not keeping square on frame   
    I have watched two videos taught by Kimmy Brunner discussing how to straighten up leaders and quilt tops. Lots of wonderful information beginning with checking the backing to make sure it is square, loading a quilt top, and a few tricks on how to keep quilt tops square as you quilt. 
     
    First one was from March 2016, and the second one from July 2016.

    Nicholette got a reaction from aktbone in Intelliquilter vs Quilt Path   
    I chose Quilt Path last year after comparing QP and IQ and seeing them in action in person. I love QP because it is very user friendly ( I am a novice with computers but have not had a problem understanding how to use QP), I like that it uses the thread break sensor my Millie came with; the tablet QP is based on is the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 (just the right size to sit on top of Millie, thin, light weight, large enough screen to see the functions well). I have found the belt driven carriage is accurate for all the block, border and pantograph patterns I stitch out, and my husband and I easily installed the QP  in one afternoon (several hours, good instructions). I can't think of anything I don't like or would change, I love my Quilt Path!
     
    Watch all the videos online for both systems. Try to see both systems in person, get a demonstration on the functions, and find out how each one is added to your longarm machine ( QP is just a change-out of the carriage your longarm sits on, IQ requires motors to be installed to drive the carriage). Think about how you will be using computerized quilting and what functions in the system you will be using as well.

    Dawn Cavanuagh contacted me by email Sunday afternoon (thank you Dawn!). It seems the pulley wheel on the drive shaft of the carriage belt for QP became slightly loosened. I had to use an allen wrench to tighten it a minuscule amount. I successfully stitched a block pattern afterwards and then a full pantograph pass across the quilt. The stitching is lovely!
