No, I don't have a quilting machine either. It's just me and my sewing machine. I know how to hand quilt, but don't particularly like it on anything bigger than a baby quilt.

I don't have one and don't want one. I like to quilt my own!

Thanks.

I don't have a quilting machine. Where would I put it? I do simple quilting in the ditch or cross hatching.....or I stitch by hand, and it does take a very long time, but I'm not going anywhere, I don't even do FMQ. I use either my Janome or my New Home School machine. I just do the best I can. It's not a contest -- it's just doing something that I love.

I don't have one either, but wished I did, along with all the hours of training and knowledge that goes with, plus a room big enough to house one.

Wow! What Singer do you use for quilting? I only own one Singer (a FW) and can't imagine quilting on it. It is the best piecing machine I have and I love it!

I have quilted a twin size quilt with my Singer 15 treadle, did both straight lines and FMQ. It was kinda fun.

I do not have one either.....but there are a lot of ways to quilt a quilt without putting it on a long arm.... I dowith my sewing machine, just roll it and wiggle it and it gets done... I wouldn't ever get one done by hand...in this lifetime...

I don't have a quilting machine, and I don't think I would want one. Fist, no room for one, and second, can't justify the expense of one since I don't like to be nailed down to one type of sewing. Just love to see the work done on one, but no desire to do that. It is wise to be happy with your blessings!
