    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.

    Hello Ladies,
     
    I would like to update some news for you - I purchased a Freddie machine! Yes, I did.  I purchased it in Feb. during my visit to APQS' Road Show, received the beginner's lesson in late March and now I have completed two quilts.  I like it, really happy that I no longer need to baste my quilts.  I have the L bobbin, sometimes I am thinking it might be a mistake, should have the M bobbin so I don't need to change bobbins too often, but it is not a big deal.  Do you guys have L or M bobbin? If you have L bobbin, are you happy with it?
     
    Cheers and y'all have a great day.

    This quilt is absolutely stunning, both piecing and quilting! I know how much work is putting into it because I am working on this pattern and just got the center portion done so far, it will take me a long while to finish piecing it.  What a beautiful quilt! Thank you for sharing.

    You did a great job on both, table runner and tree skirt. Inspire by you, I think I need to make this table runner for this year's Christmas. Oh, by the way, you did a wonder job on quilting as well.

    Ladies, thank you so much for sharing your precious experience, much appreciated.  I only quilt for myself and I too, enjoy doing custom quilting.  I don't have a longarm machine yet, I'm using a sitdown Baby Lock Tiara II machine to do the quilting. I'm going to meet with APQS road show crew in Feb. and I maybe bring one home.
     
    Thanks again.

    Thank you for all of your responses, I took a longarm quilting lesson a year ago on a Baby Lock machine and got me thinking of a sitdown machine; after using a sitdown machine for 1 year I started to seriously thinking about owning a longarm machine.  The main reason is, like some of you, just not enjoying basting process, especially a big quilt meanwhile move quilt while quilting is a physical demanding job. I have a few bed size or bigger quilt tops been done for years, finally sent 2 of them to a local quilt shop to get the job done so I can use them.  We don't have any APQS dealer nearby; the quilt shops don't use APQS machines so I am excited about going to APQS road show to try it out in early Feb.  Thanks again for all of your input and information, really appreciated.
