I finished my sherbet multi color quilt top, I plan on machine quilting, mostly stitching in the ditch around squares. I don't know what color thread to use. I had an off white attached for backing. If I use off white it will look less than good (I think) but will be better for the back, if I use one color that matches most of the quilt top, it will look lousy on the back. Should I use off white in the bobbin, and color on top? Should I use one color to quilt the entire top? I have always used
I'm fairly new to this board even though I joined few years ago. It looked a bit complicated so maybe I got lost. I've just finished reading all 120 pages of the last mug swap over the last couple of days. Today I only had to read 20. I feel like I have a few kindred spirits on here ...and Im not going to tell you who you are lol. I'm so glad I have found my way back. I've signed up for a few of the latest swaps and I'm going to tackle them one at a time now I know my way around. OHHH what I have
After too many months of computer & health issues, I'm glad to be back here with my friends. Can't wait to get started in more swaps. I've missed all my friends here.

Thank You, I will try this.

I am thinking of purchasing the electric quilt software. What are the pros and cons. I would appreciate any feedback. Is it worth the money, is it user friendly?

Guess it's time for me to do my own quilting, getting too pricey to send out quilts. I am leaning toward a 301A, Singer. I see ads on Craig's List for 301 and 401's and don't know the difference. I would like to make the correct choice as only want to buy one ONCE if you know what I mean.
