  5. Quilting Looms for Machine Quilting

    by , 05-14-2013 at 11:37 AM
    Yesterday I read where there are looms you can purchase that your sewing machine is able to ride down tracks in order to quilt your piece. Does anyone have any experience with any of these? Would you recommend the one you have? Thanks!

  10. 12" Kitty in the Window Block - made with a jelly roll!
