    Kwiltr got a reaction from Jamie.bennett@hotmail.com in Base extender drag   
    A couple of things I found and remedied...
     
    1. the Hartley ruler base edges are square cut, so fairly sharp and can cause drag. So my husband gently sanded the edges for me to round them off a bit so they don’t “dig in” to the quilt as you move the machine. 
    2. Around the machine’s needle plate there was a height/depth difference between the needle plate and the ruler base. In speaking with APQS about this, they provided small washers to insert under the plate to raise it and was able to match the height. It’s really only an issue when you use rulers I found as you press down on the quilt a bit when using a ruler a seam can catch in between the needle plate and the ruler base. 
    Hope this helps!

    I just put this one in the mail to my in-laws yesterday. It’s a Moda Bake Shop quilt pattern using a Jelly Roll, which gave me a little trouble and I ended up doing some creative piecing to get it finished. I used Superior Monopoly to ditch it, beside the ditch, as the seams are all pressed open, then completed the rest with a Glide 40wt. Lenni worked really well with the Monopoly, thank the quilting gods! ;-).  It’s about 60” square after washing. And I need to give credit to Tracey Russell from Whirls n Swirls Quilting who came out with the background full video the day I put it on the frame!

    It must be picture day today!  I just finished binding this quilt I finished quilting right before Christmas. Yesterday was finally dry enough with a little break through light in the clouds so ran outside for pictures. This quilt is a takeoff of the SKOW Moroccan Vibe, enlarged to fit our bed to 96”x 117. This was the quilt I asked so many questions here about double batting and hopping foot height etc.   It was certainly a learning experience in so many ways.  Quilted on Lenni.

    Beautiful work Kathy!  I also leave my ruler base on all the time because I mostly do custom work too.

    I finished  two quilts at the end of May so I could take them to 2 of my sisters in central Canada while visiting this summer on our cross country trip to visit Newfoundland for the first time. What a great trip we had!  
    The pattern is Angela Walter’s “Coral”, available free on her website. Both quilts are the same, except the first one I used a slightly contrasting thread (to the background) because I thought it blended a bit better with the print segments and the second quilt I used a matching thread.  In the end, I thought the second one came out better as I had figured out the quilting execution by the time I got there!  I’ve only attached the front and back pictures of one quilt here.

    Hi Kathy,
     
    You did a wonderful job, both piecing and quilting.  I also did free hand free motion quilting and ruler work combined on my quilts, so I leave my "ruler base" on my machine all the time , however someone once told me not to do so, do you use ruler base while using ruler? if you do, do you leave it on until you completed your quilting?  Thanks for your help.
