Hey Y'all,Who prefers free motion quilting vs. in the ditch on your HSM? I prefer in the ditch just because it is easier to handle the massive quilt. I have done free motion on one quilt and it was a…Continue

What machine do you use for home quilting?

I have a Janome 1600P which came with a New Joy frame.  It's fantastic for free motion quilting. However, I notice that when I do an upward stitch, the stitches skip, although the speed has been set…Continue

First 2018 quilt for my nephew who just moved into his first APARTMENT.

Sadly I don't have anywhere to keep a large roll of batting.  I really like the Quilters Dream poly & I'm not sure if it comes on a roll or not.  It was only $10.98 each for the 60" square throw size so I ordered 4 of them as the shipping was the same.  I used Warm & White for the row robin I just finished.  While I like the look of it after it has been quilted & bound, I do find it creates a lot of lint all over the quilt while I'm handling it.

Finding batting in the size I want is part of the reason I have purchased rolls of batting lately. That way I can cut what I want, when I want it. Any extra I label and save and piece sections together as needed.  A roll may sound expensive up front, but I get a lot of quilts made and if I had to purchase bagged batting for each, it would be a lot more expensive.

Thanks Cat Lady.  I am happy to finally have it finished.  I tried to buy a 60" batt for my next UFO today, but couldn't find one in Columbia so I'm going to order some from Hancocks of Paducah. In the mean time I'm sure I can find something else to finish.
