I am now at the point where I'm ready to machine quilt my project. I have pin basted the quilt...only have 80 pins...so I had to make then stretch in order to get the whole quilt done. For those of you who machine quilt, I have a some questions. 1. Do you remove the pins as you quilt? 2. How do you start and stop your stitching? I don't have a frame or clips for holding the rolled sides of my quilt, so how do you go about holding the rolled sides? My machine is a basic Brother sewing machine so my work surface is very small on the machine. I have magazines stacked all around the arm or my machine and seems to be working, but my space is still very small. The desk my machine is on is also small, maybe double the size of the machine, so I'm just trying to figure out the best way to work with the machine and the quilt, KWIM?
Any advice on machine quilting, I would love to hear. Thank you, you all are great!!
