  1. I believe I recall you posting your first quilt here--what I remember most was it wasn't a beginner type pattern and you did a fabulous job on it! I have an older version of Quilt Pro loaded on a desktop. I haven't upgraded to anything newer because I haven't had the need to--this does the job for me. Between QP, Moda Bake Shop patterns, occasional Craftsy pattern I may like, and drafting vintage blocks that I set and revise in some updated way on QP.....I got sooo many plans for quilts, I hope I live long enough to make alllll the quilts I got going on in my head! I guess if my desktop goes down, I will be buying another Quilt Pro or EQ. I know my version of QP 4 won't load on any Windows beyond Vista.....
  2. Whew, on the chemo thing! That would have had you down for nearly two years; ask me how I know! I am glad you are getting back to yourself and back at your sewing machines! I'm sure that feels great! Thanks for sharing your great news! Rock on, from one surviving sister to another
  3. Renee Haddadin youtube video on setting and fine tuning a check spring. She's on an Innova but I think it's helpful for any brand. If that check spring is tired or set too loose or tight, it's a problem.
  4. That quilt and quilting are very cool! It looks like it was fun to quilt; sans the hand cramps and all....thanks for the pics! I know your customer is so very pleased.
  5. This is the exact machine that I have, except on an 11 foot frame and mine is a 2005. It is very easy to maintain and makes a nice stitch. I swear this thing will last forever; just like an APQS. Nolting customer service is outstanding, no matter who you bought from, they will go the extra mile to help The SR on this machine is Intellistitch2kn; I've had no problems on mine and I've either got the settings tweaked just right or learned how to move it so there's no 'long stitch'. Great price for this machine...., especially with the delivery and set up! One thing though.... I do believe that Y axis encoder is supposed to riding down inside the tracks. Good luck with your sale.
  6. Add me to the "not a square quilt person" club. Regardless, I think this quilt is very pretty. I love the colors. My elderly mother would LOVE! She loves hot air balloons.
  7. That is the coolest pattern! My brothers and I would have loved that as kids. You did a super nice job on this; the quilting is fantastic.
  8. It always did strike me as silly when I would read that this machine or that machine did not "like" a certain thread. But I was right there for a bit, as mine did not "like" Rainbows, LOL, at least for a couple of years. Now it runs anything I put on it. PS-- I am green with envy over your shelves for thread. I have run out of space where I have been storing mine; I am looking for something new and compact. Will probably have to go with the under the table Ikea set up I saw on this forum a few weeks ago.
  9. Hi, quilt tech sells this APQS one for a nice price. I drive a Nolting and purchased their horizontal spool holder. It definitely comes in handy when I run YLI metallics and silk spools so I'm glad to have it. http://quilttech.com/product/apqs-horizontal-spool-holder/
  10. I bought my first longarm in 1994 sight unseen without laying hands one, ever. Back then there just wasn't the wealth of info that there is now. My manufacturer knew me on a first name basis, that is how often I called. If I had known that Pam Clark, Dawn Cavanaugh, Linda Taylor, and Marcia Stevens were out there doing the same thing, I would have hunted them down!! LOLOL Buy first I say!
  11. Perfect finishing touch on such an awesome quilt! The quilting is spectacular! Thanks for sharing it here.
  12. Super ambitious first quilt! You did fantastic! I love everything about it! You always remember your first....My first was in 1993. I had intended on making just ONE. I went into Joann Fabric's, was planning on just buying several different kinds of yardage, cutting it up and sewing it together. A helpful sales lady recommended Eleanor Burn's "Log Cabin Quilt in a Day" and I bought it, along with a rotary cutter, mat, and ruler that Log Cabin quilt was my first! Within a week I was back at Joann's buying more fabric to make another Log Cabin, LOL. Soon I was buying more Eleanor Burn's books, found her PBS series and bought my first longarm in 1994! Yeah, I fell hard and fast for quilting, LOLOL. I wish I knew who that Joann sales lady was.....I would love to thank her; she surely has no idea of the world that she had opened up for me. I am so grateful; truly.
  13. I like Hobbs Wool on a roll from Linda's Electric Quilters. http://www.longarmsupplies.net/hobbsheirloomwashablewoolbatt.aspx
