Trillium

Recommended Posts

Has anyone came up with a way to get the trillium to work well? I've tried it out several times on samples and CANNOT get the center intersections to work. Even Rob (who is great with these) can't get them to come out looking good. The first set of loops looks great, it is when I start doing the second line that they just overlap or look smushy. I love the design but am not sure if I may have to return this one.

I did get the waves and the cosmos - LOVE them both, my neighbors already want quilts done with them. Already have clams, spirals (Love both) and the zigzag (getting to know) and the 7 Treasures (working out the kinks.)

I'm going to try to call Michael tomorrow or Monday - hate to bother him on the weekend. I do love the look of it, but really need to figure out how to get it to not look so darn messy.

Just talked to Michael....thank you so much. Luckily he has several suggestions. On our way to try them out now, I have high hopes that this is all going to work out great. I love trillium...now I just need daisies and one with bubbble/circles all over! hint, hint!

Hi Julie. I have most of Michael's long boards and love them all! I have worked wth the Trillium and didn't have a problem, but I expect that Michael has already talked to you and sent you his diagram, so I won't try to offer advice. It is really quilte easy if you follow the pattern.

I just wanted you to know that with a bit of patience you will get it. Don't give up!

Connie,

There is NOTHING like the Circle Lord customer service. To them "above and beyond" is just run of the mill. Can you tell I'm a happy customer?

Don't tell me not to burn the candle at both ends... Tell me where to get more wax!

How do you do the box with the quote inside it that so many of you do? And as far as Circle Lord, I am not even an owner and Michael is already giving me great customer service. He has seen me ask several questions and he has been kind enough to answer them for me.

Julie,

I assume you've figured out the cause of the problem you were having. Hopping foot too low, quilt top too loose, or something???

I don't have the Trillium template yet, but I like it.....someday.

Sorry all, I wanted to post an update sooner, but I was too busy quilting!!! Yes, with the trillium. Looks great, will try to post a pic later.

I purchased a used machine from someone who passed away. Family who didn't know quilting had taken it apart. When we put it back together all seemed good. My DH realized that there were some very slight wobble in the bracket bar that holds the stylus assembly. He actually ground some metal off of a spacer and that made it very tight, no more wobble. He and Michael were chatting about it on the phone! Love Michael, he is so helpful and friendly.

We also checked to make sure the hopping foot was okay - it was. We did readjust the tension on the quilt itself to be more steady and easily reproduced.

So far it is working fantastic.

I'll go take a picture now!

Georgene, this is a great time to add to your Circle Lord collection! And be sure to check out the new Diamond zig zag/waves template. So many possibilities with it and so versatile! You know you want it! :P

Well, I just ordered the Trillium and the 1/4 inch crosshatch.

With this new purchase, I guess Michael was able to extend my payment plan so that my total per month is only about $3.00 more than it is currently. A no brainer.

Michael and Kay are the best. Whether you got your long arm new or used, they are right there with you to be sure your Circle Lord works perfectly!

I want the mini clams long board. The daiseys and other new ones are tempting too! Good thing MQX is around the corner!

Thanks. This picture is more recent, last month, in fact. Therefore I'm older....fuller face (more weight), and I no longer wear contact lens or makeup.

So it's more like I am now than the other one. Which was what I was when I was a "career woman" and worked for a living.

Although I sort of work now, I have no one to impress except my customers, and it's the quilting that impresses them, not makeup and business attire.

So now I wear what's comfortable and do what I enjoy doing....quilting tops, bringing them to life, hopefully.
