    I finally got my new Queen Quilter all together tonight, put on some plain muslin top and back and some scrap batting and started her up.

    At first I thought I was doing something totally wrong!! I was trying to baste the top across the top and the stitches were about 1/2" long!! It was working fine going forward and back but not side to side. I thought the stitch regulator wasn't working. I then looked underneath and saw that the thin cord for the stitch regulator wasn't letting the roller touch the rail. Once I got that out of the way it worked!!

    I'm still playing with the tension since I don't think that the green bobbin thread that came on a pre-wound bobbin should be showing on the top. I need to play with the stitch length and see what I like best too. Overall I am so happy with how it's working. :-D

    Now I just need to practice, practice, practice. And oh yeah... wear my glasses!!

    I got a Queen Quilter. It is as fun as I thought it would be. I need to get the bed out of the room and get a rolling chair that can adjust pretty high because I think I would rather sit down. Also need to loosen up the tension in my body.

    Looks as though you are doing great! Pam I am sure you will be as perfect with the LA as you are with your quilts. I always enjoy seeing the beautiful things you make. ENJOY your new "toy" :)

    thank you :D I am not aiming for perfection, just to be able to quilt my own quilts and not totally mess them up.
