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

Kay, have you gone on You Tube to see if there are any videos for this? If you're having trouble with your hands, Sharon Schamber has a product called The Quilt Halo. You can see it here: http://www.purpledaisiesllc.com/The_Quilt_Halo_p/223.htm

SewCalGal,

I think you can merge into this group. True, many of us are LAers, but there are some awesome DSM quilters here like Teri Lucas. She's an award winning quilter who does all her quilting on her Bernina.

Kay I'd really suggest taking a machine quilting class at a local quilt shop or at a show that offers classes.  Or get Paula Reids video Fluff & Stuff - which will help you through dealing with large quilts on your domestic.

Hi All! I'm new to the group, new to the site. I've been reading everyone's comments, and I just want to say it's nice to see so many people helping each other. I've be quilting for a little over 2 years now. Before that I was convinced I couldn't sew so I just wouldn't try. Since I started I've made about 24 quilts including baby quilts, wall hangins, one Cal king, a few lap quilts and some twin size quilts. I've loved learning with each one, and I have learned on each one. I have four tops that are waiting for me to piece them together because I'm having issues with the weight and my hands. So I'm looking for some feed back on quilt as you go techniques. I don't want to use sashing on the fronts, it would destroy the patterns, so any ideas anyone? All thoughts are welcome.

I saw that there was a Machine Quilting group for longarmers, but not one for those on a home sewing machine.  Didn't see this group.  As I created a group for Machine Quilting on a home sewing machine, I'm wondering if it would not be best to move that discussion in this group....or should I keep it as a separate group. 

What does everyone recommend?

Susie, I recently pieced batting for my sister, who was making her second quilt. It wasn't too difficult and came out well. Here are two links from the Quilt Views website with instructions:

I just heard about a heat fusible batting seam tape too. I might try that if I have to piece batting in the future.

just another thought here.

true...there is wide batt available wherever it is sold. but if you are a miser like me...you can also take two pieces or i prefer three...wide cnter narrow edges same as piecing a backing...i seperate the edges...trim upper half on one lower half on other...then they overlap nicely w/out bulk...i don't need to whip stitch and they hold perfectly while quilting and after quilt finished ...laundered & used.

Thank you for your help Ladies. I'm going to a quilt shop this weekend. Unfortunately it's a bit of a drive but will be worth it. Wal Mart and our Joanns her doesnt have it. We lost our big Joann's in Joplin last May. They are now in the mall as a very small store but are looking to open a bigger store in Fall, hopefully they will have more options in new store. I prefer the quilt shop fabrics tho.
