    Hi Deb here. I'm making a quit for a show in October. It's a pyramid charm (black, white,& red) Quneen .But I do not know weather to tie it or hand quilt it? I thought about machine quilting; but I have a Vik.415, and it is to small of a quneen. I know I tryed it once.It came out bad. And sending it out to be quilted cost to much. I'm straped. Any surgustions? :?

    For a show I would really try to quilt it. I think you will love your work if you really have to work at it.

    Oh my gosh, it only took you 3 days to cut all those tiny triangles? You're good. I'm cutting as I go, it seems to take me absolutely forever (and I get bored easily which doesn't help). Congrats on all your hard work so far. I'm sure it will be beautiful. Love that color combo.

    I think quilting would be better than tying.

    I sounds gorgeous! I never look forward to a fast weekend, but a picture will make Monday worth it! :D

    Hi there, Just an idea but have you thought of quilting it in quarters. Okay so you have to do a bit of hand sewing but it would be easier to handle.

    Quliting by hand is no problme for me . It takes time . I work 6 days a week; my day starts at 3 am I have to be at work at 5 an it is an hour drive. And it is a 10 hr. day if not longer. IT takes me a long time to stich in the ditch, and Ido not want to do trangles. Any surgestions all are wecome I have till the end of Sep. Thanks
