Hello Everyone, Just signed up last night on the Quilting Board and thought I would introduce myself. I love making quilts. I believe everyone in my family now has one that I've made. I use to quilt by hand until I injured my shoulder at work and that lead me to getting a longarm machine but standing at work and trying to stand at a machine wasn't working for me. I just bought a Brother PQ1500 and thought I would give FMQ a try. I've been looking on the internet for information about FMQ on a domestic
I have bought a new quilting frame with machine with Qbot all ready set up but now I would like to buy a long arm machine to replace my Husquvarna Viking mega quilter. Can anyone give me an idea on what machines to look at?

I got a couple of scrappy "Sister's Choice" blocks made. These are pretty easy to make. Not sure how many I'll be making yet. I also got a little scrappy surprise made for an upcoming swap.
My Favourite quilt, the one Iím most proud of, the one which hasnít yet been washed, and the one no-one is allowed to sit on, is called ďThereís plenty moreĒ.
I collected together scraps of almost every fabric in my stash and my motherís, it even has a contribution from a friend, who began a dress and never finished it, back in the 1980ís, there are also fabrics from the 60ís , 70ís, 80ís, and 90ís, just looking at the centre, I can see the remnants

We will post our centers here for everyone to see and then when we are done (should be around June 2013) we will post our finished quilts. This will be a great journey for all of us. We are all so excited!!
I will start with mine. I hope everyone likes it, I can't wait to see what this group does with it.
It is called the easy carpenters

It is not perfect, but I am thrilled!
Colleen MarieGood Day everyone, this is my first time bloging. I just purchased a Featherweight and it has a film on the base. I can scratch it off with my finger nail without doing any damage but not all will come off. Is there something/clemicals I could use on it?
