    Hi,just found this site awhile back.Haven't begun to read it all yet,but love the topics,and the people here.One big family,love it.Have a great tip for mock hand quilting on a sewing machine.They did it in the 20's.So a very old and a lost art.Put 2 threads in the top needle,( darker color),then a thread that matches the quilt top color in the bobbin.The thick threads pop,while the bobbin thread disapears in the quilt.Try it both ways w/the colors.Adjust tensions till you like it. I can't wait to learn more.I'm like a sponge,like to soak it up,and pass it on.Thanks

    I'm not real savy about forums as this is my first time joining in one.I answered Sue's hello to me,and thought I would thank you all personally,but saw hers ended up down a ways,so would like to thank you all,each and every one of you very much for welcoming me here at the Quilting Forum,and will be sure to pass it on,also please pass that old quilting tip around the board to others,so they can try it too.I think every body should know about it,and at least they'll have it should they want to try it.I hope one of you can post it after trying it and show how it looks.Try different stitch lengths with it also.I can't because I don't have a printer,or anything else.In fact my neighbor gave me a computer 2 1/2 yrs ago,and was the first time I was even ever on one,so am a newbie there too.Can't do that fancy stuff yet like uploading a video,No camera either.So,please try it and post it so everyone can have it and pass it around too.Thank you so much,Xylie55.
