    I rent a long arm and use zippers to attach to the leaders. Works great and takes minutes to load a quilt. Of course the zippers are attached to the quilt at home, so no rental time is used loading the quilt. I read a funny the other day and all the advise about water soluble thread reminded me. I was reserching thread and it said not to use water soluble thread on swim suits. I keep picturing someone coming out of the water without a suit. Too funny.

    [QUOTE=BKrenning;5347359] Then I lock the quilting machine into a straight horizontal line and use it to attach the batting to the backing fabric.

    Beverly, How do you lock the machine. I have a Voyager on a Hinterberg stretch frame and when I try to baste horizontaly its crooked.

    You should be fine. It's only a single layer of canvas you're working with so it's really not that thick. I don't know what your machine is but mine is a Gammill and it's a breeze to load with the Red Snappers.
