I'm making a baby quilt 46x58". I'm an inexperience quilter, i have join a quilting group out of a church, we meet twice a month they are teaching me the techniques of quilt. So far i have sew all the pieces together, my next step in to put the batting and the back and be ready for the quilting process. My question to you all, i would like to do the quilting by hand, since to me it has more of a sentimental reason, vs having someone else do the stitching, however i do not have that much

Love reading all the infor on the quilters board but all the quilting lingo is confusing because I just don't have it down yet. Could you guide me to a sight where I can get familar with the lingo. Thanks all

Would love to get my hands on some ... I use the old sad irons for weights!
My favorite weights are "3rd Hands". You just sew some about 4" squares or rounds of about 4" - right sides together - sew them twice. Leave a little hole on one side about an inch across.
Turn - poke out the corners.
and FILL THEM WITH PENNIES! Takes a few dollars worth,
and they are heavy enough

Does anyone have a Bernina 440 QE that could help me out. I just bought it today, and have not had a class on it. I have a few questions. that are not answered in the manual.
A friend that I longarm quilt for is making a pink quilt for a cancer research auction. She asked if I could quilt it with a breast cancer ribbon design. Anyone know of one I could use?
Does anyone know of a shop to quilt a quilt for me in Bowling Green KY. or near there.
Thank You! Cookie64

I am not ready to start this project as of yet, but wanted to do some more research on the "how to's". I have a huge fear that this idea is completely out there on
