  1. Quilting over fat seams

    by , 11-27-2012 at 09:50 AM
    We started using our Tin Lizzie a few months ago. We practiced on whole cloth and were ready to do a real quilt top. When we started quilting on the pieced top, the machine would resist and drag when the machine crossed the corner seams. Everything I have read about machine quilting says to stay relaxed and not hold the handles too tightly. When we hit these seams we have to push through them, distorting the pattern. Has anyone else experienced this and, if so, is there a solution?

  7. Bible Quilt Blocks

    by , 11-25-2012 at 02:10 PM
    Hi, I'm new here. I am looking for Bible Quilt Blocks from a back issue of Traditional Quilter Vol. 1 No. 2. I have been going through my Grandmothers Quilt Binder and found the issue Vol. 1 No. 3 and it says that this was started in the previous issue. I have half the patterns and was wondering if anyone happens to have a copy of that issue. Thanks, Carrie B.

  10. Babylock symphony BSR

    by , 11-25-2012 at 10:07 AM
    I bought a BL Symphony at last year's quilt show in Houston. I see that there is a BSR for this machine now. Has anyone used this before and is it worth purchasing? Price quoted locally is $1,200!!

    Also, has anyone used monopoly invisible thread with the Symphony? I am currently working on a Caryl Bryer Fallert quilt that requires the use of this thread, however, it's been pretty difficult to get the tension right. I am using a 1mm zig zag stitch with regular thread in the bobbin ...
