    Yahoo! After many trials and errors (including stitching a short section to the leader ) I managed to get this done! This is exciting! Now I have 6 quilts to get done by Christmas. I am going to keep the quilting down to simple loop de loops and then start practicing some feathers after the holidays!
    This was a real learning experience with me learning from lots of mistakes. :oops: :oops: :oops:

    Yeah!!! It is good to take the time to practice. :) I know I learn my watching. It might be good to take some time and watch some quilting techniques on youtube to help. Congrats on your new machine.

    Congratulations! It's taking that first step that is hardest for me. By the time you get those six quilts done you will have really improved and be ready for learning fancier designs!

    I stitched to the leader too on one of my first. I love having the machine & frame ~ I just wish it wasn't so heavy. =) I was thinking of getting really long zippers to put on the leaders...its an idea.

    Thanks for all the kind words! I decided to do the binding by machine after finishing. What a fast quilt! Maybe I should do some more whole cloth quilts!
