How did you get into teaching?

Thanks, Teri.  It's great to meet you.  The low contrast blocks came about because I didn't have enough fabric to do them as one solid square.  What are you working on?

Did you know that I have no idea how to use this site?!  Obviously since I'm just now seeing your comment from July!

Hey!  I just saw you one Quilting Arts TV yesterday!  How exciting!  I just wish they'd do one segment instead of three...there was so much more you could have shown us.  I like the program, but there isn't enough time spent with each guest.  Anyway, you did great!

Thanks for the tip about what I'm using and machine set up details.  That's a really good idea since I practice with a variety of thread weights.  I love using Superior Brytes as well as their Kimono silk, so of course my tension is completely different for each one.  I always just experiment, but it would be nice to know where to set it when I start.  I use the Bottom Line frequently, and I've never had to adjust my bobbin.  I do have an extra bobbin in case I decide to try couching.  I love Ricky Tims Razzle Dazzle, but have yet to try couching.

By the way, I'm in Seaside, Oregon.  A very small town without a guild (which is why I came here).  I've never been to a class and I've had to teach myself everything.  A class would be so helpful!  I'd love taking a machine quilting class!  I think I'm pretty good considering the length of time I've been doing it, but I'm sure I'd be more advanced by now if I'd had the opportunity to take some classes.  I'm hoping to go to a quilt show some day just so I can take some!

How exciting to know a celebrity!!!!  I'm serious too; being published is a BIG deal!  I knew you were a very experienced quilter and when I saw that article along with the photos I thought it was you.  I've read and re-read that article numerous times.  I absolutely LOVE machine quilting, but a few years ago I stopped my daily practicing, and I really want to get back into it again because I know I have the potential to become much better!  By the way, I really enjoy your posts!

Hey Teri, are you the same Teri Lucas who has a machine quilting article in the International Quilt Festivals 35th anniversary magazine?

Superior is my absolute FAVORITE place to buy thread.  I bought several colors of silk and my favorite is Jade (so far...of course I'd love to collect them all!).  They have an excellent education section that I'm always telling people about.  That's where I learned a lot about my machine and thread.  And I love the videos they started awhile back.  I'd love to go to Bob's School of Threadology!!!

Thanks for writing back...and thanks for mentioning cotton backing; I guess I didn't think it through that far!  Do you use silk in the bobbin as well?  I'd probably try Superiors' Bottom Line first to see how that works.  I don't know if I'd use a 70/10...probably an 80/12 since I'd be going through three layers.  Today I'm making a 12"x12" silk sandwich and just playing with it.  Sometimes I do my best work on my play pieces!  I was getting pretty good at free-motion quilting after a year of so of quilting, but I would practice at least 15 minutes a day.  I'd probably be really good now if I'd kept up on it!  I can do a lot of different background types of quilting, micro stippling and occasionally follow the lines of a stencil.  It's hard for me to follow someone else's lines though!  It's funny to me how many quilters are afraid to even try free-motion quilting!  I was enthralled with it right off the bat.  I learned by using Maurine Nobel's book, "Quilting Made Easy".  I've bought several books since then.  I love quilting books!

Anyway, thanks for the permission to pick you brain :)
