I have a kenmore machine that has worked pretty well learning my machine quilting. My question is for some reason I can not get it to go slow like it did before. The speed is controlled by the foot…Continue

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

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

Thanks for the info Janet.

What brand rulers do you use? I've got Westalee but I think there are other brands also.

Comment by Janet/MO yesterday

Welcome to the group Janis.  I bought the basic ruler kit to use with my Pfaff.  It takes some getting used to, but I like it.  I want to branch out & buy more one of these days.  

I am machine quilting a wallhanging & hope to have it done by next week at the latest.

Cat Lady, your tablerunner is beautiful. 

Hi ladies. I'm so glad I found this group. I haven't done any quilting on my domestic machine. I had to sell a long arm since we moved in 2017. I'm getting back into quilting now and have decided to try out quilting on my domestic.

Does anyone use rulers in their domestic machine quilting? What brand is the best. I  bought a ruler foot and a couple of basic rulers and plan to try it out.

Only in my mind. Our accountant usually takes our taxes after St Patrick's Day, so this weekend is all about the paperwork.

Happy National Quilting Day.  Have any of you been quilting today?

Beautiful runner, Cat Lady! The quilting is awesome!

Finally able to share one of my domestic machine quilted pieces.

Thia runner was quilted using some templates to quilt daffodils and tulips in the background area. I was originally thinking of doing some ruler work in the middle section (which was designed to showcase the quilting) but had to get it quilted quickly, and my ruler work is still in the beginner-learning stage.

The pattern for this runner can be found in the February 2019 issue of The Quilt Pattern Magazine.  https://www.quiltpatternmagazine.com/
