    I need some suggestions please.

    I am going to try to quilt my Bargello. It is 96x96 and all I have is my DSM. If anyone has quilted one or if you haven't, do you have any suggestions on what will be the easiest way to quilt it? There are too many seams to stitch in the ditch. It is the green and black I posted a while back. Thank you for ANY help.

    Your quilt is gorgeous !
    I quilted mine in lines following the pattern using my walking foot Bargello, finally finished. I started in the centre and worked out. Make sure that the weight of the quilt is supported all the way around.
    The biggest risk is the one not taken

    Woody, yours is beautiful. How far apart are your lines?

    Went back and found your picture of the bargello quilt. You did a fabulous job on that top. I think you will need to check and see if when you get the backing and batting sandwiched to the top if you are going to be able to roll it and fit it through the throat on your machine. Would hate for you to get almost half way and discover it won't fit. May need to use a very thin batt. Although cotton seems to work best for me when machine quilting. Good luck, and post pictures when you have it completed

    Thanks everyone
    I'm not sure how close the lines are, I don't have the quilt here at the moment but they are pretty close, most would only be an inch or less apart.
