    Yes I do Joan, I have an HQ16. I don't have the stuff for all the fancy computer designs, that's another $8000.00, so all of mine are free motion quilting. It was costing me $120.00 plus shipping both ways and extra for the batting and thread per quilt to have it done. I just bought a bunch of stencils and some boards just need to practice with them. Practice is the key word just have to make myself do it!! You're right...you can't afford to buy a machine at that price. You're getting the deal of a lifetime, the batting alone is half that price.
    Quiltermomma thanks for the link, think I found the right thread or at least one that will blend and then I found some more for my 3 round robin quilts that I'm doing and 1 more, so 4 spools of thread and $130.00 later. Yup I found the thread site...my allotment is shot for this month!!

    Oh but the thread is so worth it. You bought the larger spools for sure so you will be doing more than just one quilt each spool. It is a great quality thread. I am on their monthly shipping schedule so I get four new colors every month on the Omni Thread. It isn't varigated like the King Tut, but still runs nice thru the longarm.

    I am trying to make this block. All my points are where they're supposed to be, but it doesn't square up to 12 1/2. What am I doing wrong?

    Looks like your outside HST are cut to small. From your photo appears you will loose the points on the top and bottom when it's sewed together in a quilt. I'd cut them 1/2" bigger and then trim to 12 1/2". Maybe that would help

    Jaba, that's what I think too. Fortunately, that is an easy fix.

    Since I am not the worlds most accurate at cutting I ALWAYS cut larger on hst's. if it says 3 7/8 I cut 4 1/8th then trim back and it works. Learned that a year ago on the quilting board when I had the same trouble my fellow members in the boom 8 taught me a lot of cool tricks. that is one of the best ones. easy to trim back not so easy to add to it.

    Linda, so if the pattern calls for the square to be 3 7/8 you make the square 4 1/8 then cut it into a HST? You always add 1/4" to what the pattern calls for? The one trick that someone taught me that has been a life saver is after the squares/HST or whatever are sewn to "trim" them to the size it calls for....so much easier to make them fit into the pattern if they are the correct size and some NOT just a tad off! Gave the blue quilt from one of the booms to a friend for his birthday yesterday and I must say it looks fantastic on his bed, manly...thought that would be better than the mauve, flowerly one! Finished my black/white top for my son for Christmas...Back to 5 to go to the quilters.
    When is the next swap??? LOL

    Joan I will answer your question as to why I said they were too small to molly......she had stated that she did not have a pattern and was coping one that she had seen so wasn't sure of her measurements. The center looks great and matched perfectly, but she just cut the outside setting pieces too small (I think). If I have exact measurements on a block that's what I cut it at.

    Hello Everyone. I am posting this for LovingIzabella as she has suffered a setback with her shunt. She is currently in the hospital and doesn't know when she will be home. She will post again once she is home, in the mean time if there are any problems please feel free to email me. I will do my best to help find a solution. I hope everyone is on the downward slope of there sewing as the deadline I believe is Nov 10th. Again if you have any problems please drop me an email. Thank You, Melinda
