I purchased a used APQS Millenium the day after Thanksgiving. After doing some all over quilting designs for a few quilts and taking a class on quilting negative space from Angela Walters, I dove in and had a lot of fun densely quilting my Foothills Mystery Quilt (created by Cheryl @Meadow Mist Designs). A simple snowbank and a bit of sunlight across a corner of the quilt starts to give you an idea of the texture and quilting detail that I put into the quilt. I do not have any idea of the total number of hours I spent on the quilting; it was a lot. I worked on the quilting over 3 days, and I was inspired to try a lot of new patterns and ideas after taking Angela Walters’ Quilting Negative Space workshop at QuiltCon. I used a wishbone pattern around the borders, a square spiral at each corner, swirl hooks in the negative space around the blocks, a large swirl hook in the center of each diamond surrounded by a small rounded meander to help the swirl hook poof and pop up, back and forth lines in the diamonds and stars (alternating the direction of the lines for each pattern), and a different FMQ pattern for each row of the gray blender. Whew! I used 50wt Aurifil #2692 (black) on the black and gray, and 50wt Auriful #2130 (medium butter) on the yellow and to sew down the binding. The thread blended perfectly into the quilt, and I really had a lot of fun adding in lots of dense quilting details across the quilt. I got more confident with the small swirl hook meander pattern as time went on, but because I made the pattern so small it took a lot of time and an entire large spool of Aurifil to quilt just the black portion of the quilt. Adding in the amount of the medium butter thread I used, the quilt has roughly 1990 yards or just over a mile of thread just in the quilting. Many more photos and details on the entire process can be read about in my blog post.
2003 APQS Millennium $7750 -Features 14' table with motorized feed -Upgraded m&m wheels -Modified light behind needle bar (customized for me by request to aid in optimum visibility during intricate work. All APQS machines have since been changed to this betterment) -Automatic Stitch Regulator -Bobbin Thread Cutter -Dual Electric Channel Lock for Both Directions -Built In Laser Pointer with upper and lower mounts -On-Board Bobbin Winder -Variable Needle Speed -base attachment for ruler work -updated foot to accommodate rulers -low profile side clamps -tray table that fits between rails for tool placement -extra bobbins, needles, bobbin cases -manuals I am selling because I am having surgery the end of this month and was gong to send my machine in for regular maintenance. Since I have been considering selling, I would rather have someone assume prior to this appointment so the 1 year warranty for the maintenance and materials would transfer to the new owner. Routine maintenance is estimated at $500. Service for the machine head is scheduled for the end of June and the machine will be to factory standards with all new mother and circuit boards,etc. . Although it is running fine now, it is due for maintenance and, since I can't work anyway, the timing is right. I have maintained and loved this machine!!! This is my 2nd APQS machine, loved them both and both purchased new directly from APQS. Please contact me for photos if seriously interested. Pick up only.
