Hi Everyone, thank you for taking the time to read my question....
Ok, the experienced quilter out there might just howl and throw things at your computer when you see my question, and I may be asking a question that is so obvious to many, but here I go.
I have a normal electric sewing machine that is the one my mother taught me to use when I was little.
My question is about sewing machines you use for machine quilting. Can I use my standard machine to quilt something bigger than a baby quilt? I would love to do a adult size quilt for my Mom next, but I am concerned about the ‘throat’ of my sewing machine not being big enough. The baby quilt I am doing at the moment (40x50 inches) seems to clog up the throat of the machine each time I move it through to change direction on my echo quilting.
Any tips on if it is indeed possible to quilt large items on a normal machine, and how do you manage all the bulk through the throat of the machine!
THANKS FOR ANY ADVICE!!!
