    Yes, thanks Rose Marie and dd. I am doing a lap quilt at the moment, after loads of practice squares, and getting along okay so far. I could only ditch on my old machine but now have a Janome 6600P which is great. Dont think there are too many longarms around here - I'm regarded as an oddity cos I use a machine!
    Intend to keep the queen quilting simple - it is not an intricate quilt - will post a pic when its done!

    I used to always tie my quilts, but recently I started some limited hand-quilting - well, the quilt I was making needed some special motifs, so I kinda jumped in. The last quilt I made I tried quilting on the machine - unfortunately I got way impatient and it is not my best work, especially on the back. It's okay, though, daughter still loves it, and that's what counts. Now I'm working on a quilt that I'm going to try quilting a square at a time before I put it together. I'm going to practice that free motion quilting thing on some scraps first, though!

    I do my own quilting on my machine. I am inclined now to quilt as I go block by block. Everything is so much easier that way.

    I have just started practicing machine quilting... I did get frustrated and gave up for a few... I will make a try to do more practicing after my move... I have always sent mine to a friend for machine quilting... She only charges me $40.00 for a king and that includes batting and backing.. However she has alot going on in her life right now and I feel taking my quilting to her is taking advantage of her good nature..

    I quilt mine on my sewing machine. The special even feed pressure foot works great.

    :lol: I take my quilts to a wonderful shop near my home, where they have a computerized long arm machine. They have hundreds of quilting designs and it is so much fun picking out the best/cutest one for your particular quilt. I just finished an I Spy quilt for a great-nephew to be and had them do little airplanes... I know they do quilts from different states and countries. This is my first post and I haven't learned yet how to PM or I would have sent you their name already, instead of rambling...I do not think the rules allow us to post names of businesses on this location..
