...I am gonna scream!
I think I almost did, too. I finished the quilt top yesterday for one of my granddaughters, sandwiched and pin basted it, and then started FMQing. Arrrggghh!! I just couldn't handled the extra bulk of the quilt and ended up ripping out the first few lines of stitches three times. I used an additional table to support the rolled up quilt on the back side of my machine plus my machine has a good sized throat. My problem was more with the bulkiness of the quilt in my lap since I started in the center. Now my quilt is at my LQS to be done on her LA. I gave up trying to do it myself. I can do small projects and be satisfied, but not my first large quilt.
