    Welcome from Ontario, Canada. You can machine quilt if you baste the layers together in a quilt sandwich first. There are many ways to baste, pins, 505 spray, thread, elmer’s Washable glue etc. Try a little sample sandwich first to practice.

    Welcome aboard and good luck! I tied my quilts for many years before switching to quilting them down on my sewing machine.

    Hi and welcome from North Carolina! I went the opposite way! Started off many, many, many years ago with machine quilting. Now that I'm really old, I started to tie them. It's easier than fighting them under the machine's needle. You'll do fine. If you have questions, all the answers can be found on this board. Enjoy!

    Welcome from Minneapolis. I have fond memories of Buffalo back in the 60's when the drinking age was lower than in Canada where I lived. Of course that's before I discovered quilting
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.
