Another member of the forum made these log cabin blocks--I just assembled them and finished the quilt. It was given as a comfort quilt to a woman going through treatment for breast cancer.

Hi! I'm looking for a pattern that I think was in love of quilting. Bought the fabric to make it, didn't get to it last year and put it away. Now ready to do it for my Mom's best friend but I seem to have given away that magazine. It was squares with cardinals in the middle and a dark green border I think.

Oh my this machine is going to get the best of me. It has the USB and for the life of me, I can't figure how or where to load designs on my PC and transfer them to sew to embroider.

Seems that the machine "bedded in" as it were, because after a couple of quilts, I returned to other needles. Have just finished a couple of heavily fmq'd quilts with J. titanium 70/10, and Aurifil 50 wt.
I've not done anything with bobbin tension, just have the machine on 'auto'.
But I have found that it will
Hi, I'm new here and to longarm quilting. A little background. My Mom purchased a Proto Longarm Stitch Wizard which I have inherited. When Mom had issues there was a service number and we would get talked through problems. Long story short; company is no longer in service with no forwarding information. Mom has passed and was my only reference. My husband and I have been trying to get machine back up and running.
We have managed to get it running but I am having issues ! My top thread
