    Which machine would you recommend and why. Which have the best features and bang for buck?

  2. Adding loops to top of quilt

    by , Yesterday at 06:47 AM
    I have finished a wedding signature quilt. Now the bride wants me to add loops to the top for hanging. I've done that with a sleeve but not sure how to add loops so they look nice.
    Any suggestions? Thanks.

  3. I ruined my king size scrap quilt.

Because of the intricate pattern, I was going thru 1 marker per block, and at $6.00 per pen x 25 it was getting pricey. So what did dumb Jane do? She tested frixion pens on samples that disappeared easily.

  5. Longarm underside cam

    by , 07-18-2017 at 01:55 AM
    Being new to this blog, I would like to add my experience in NOT being able to see the underside of a quilt on a longarm.
    There was one request on here as to what kind of camera to use.

    What I found, that I just mounted last night, is called an Endoscope. The one I purchased from Amazon, has an Android connector and the camera has LED's, and a 15 foot cable. Then you download the free Endoscope APP and you are ready to go,
    Simply route the cable up to the top of the longarm, ...

  7. Strait cuts

    by , 07-08-2017 at 11:52 AM
    I am a new handicapped quilter and am in need of some help cutting my fabric. I can no longer stand to cut so that I am using the same amount of pressure from one end to the other( I cut 30 inches in length fold or I fold a yard into fourth's). I use a rotary cutter and find I have a wave in the middle of the strips. I also tried a rotary trimmer and was inconsistent in strait cuts because of the amount of play in the trimmer. I need help and or suggestions.

    I have been busy but I can't post much, as the intended recipient of my recent efforts also reads this blog. But this post is a bit different.
    READ IF YOU DARE!

I found out it's a boy, and their choices for baby "stuff" was more browns and blues, etc., so this one didn't really fit them. )
