OK all, I have the first question. What kind of sewing machine do you use for your quilting? I have a basic Brother sewing machine, which limits the size quilts I can make. I am thinking of getting a…Continue

I have a longarm, but am contemplating purchasing an APQS George to do some create some add on borders rather than the standard binding I currently use. Does anyone have any experience with a George?Continue

Under my needle today...another isolette cover. This one started with a panel, which l' m outline quilting...then on to do cc's in the border of 2" squares l made from scraps. The final borders will get some detailed quilting ( haven't decided on one yet).

Shortest day of the year...and light's fading fast from the skylight over my machine...but l hate to stop when l'm ''on a roll''. lol.

The machine is my own. l have a homebuilt large frame in garage attic, but it has no heat, so l always had to use the machine as a sitdown one in winter. This one is not favored by many, as it is "flimsy" when set up in 10 ft., but l'm using the 1/2 set up. l'm not sure if that panto shelf will's in my line of vision unless l'm sitting...something l've never tried while " longarming." For panto use, one l'll try that first. lt's been years since l've used one!

Hère's my latest set up! l got a bargain on kijiji in time to set up until now. Serously small compared to long arm setup, but just right for project Linus quilts:)

Many of us belong to the fmq group too , and this one seems to have lost many folk's interest. But there ARE other ways to machine quilt than free motion. There is the "quilt as you go" flip/sew method ( useful for small, thick projects) , biscuit quilts, rag quilts, chenille methods, machine cathedral window... likely there's a lot more. I've noticed some quilters use machine embroidery to quilt  ( even those without a fancy embroidery machine). So , lets see some pictures & discuss some ideas on "non conventional" quilting !
