SUZSLO, thank you for that toothpick tip. Never thought of that. I have marked my table, but that mark gets hidden with the first layer.
Itís an old tip from Harriet Hargrave.

I also do my own quilting on my Janome machine. It is work but very doable and so satisfying when done and someone asks who quilted it for you and you can say "I did". It does take practice but each quilt gets better - I think anyway.

I try to quilt on Janome using straight stitches, stitch in the ditch, quilt as you go and rulers. I periodically try FMQ but am not happy with the results. The idea of a longarm does not appeal to me very often, but when it does I think about going to a LQS and learning to use theirs which are often set up to rent.
