Quilt With Us

Getting close to the big day! Today I had the carpet cleaners come and shampoo my daughter's old bedroom as it definitely needed it. Expecting the delivery of all the parts to my long arm machine on Thursday. I am so excited. My DH will have to put it together first. I sure hope there is an instruction video with it as I don't have an inkling how to set it up much less load a quilt on it. I am sure I will getting on here a lot to ask advice. It is an Innova. Not to many people have heard of it but I was very impressed with it at the quilt show in Paducah when I was test driving all of them. I can't believe I am getting this. I really thought it would be years if any before I got one. My DH told me though to consider it a tool and good tools are an investment. I will be taking pictures once it is up and running. Just learned a few days ago how to download pictures so I am excited. Have a great evening everyone!

Enjoy your machine, but make sure to give yourself time to learn. When I first got mine I didn't like it for two years. I took a class with a master quilter and within 5 minutes she pinpointed three things that she had me change. Now I will stack one of my quilts up against a quilt done on a stich regulated machine any day of the week. I will tell you thread and batting make a huge difference, I love So Fine thread and I only use Quilters Dream Batting in my own quilts. There is a group of long arm quilters on this site......when you do have questions. Happy quilting

Jump in and do it!!! Can you take lessons locally? It's always fun to learn by show and tell! Good luck...

Marla,,, congrats. I never thought I would want to quilt by machine, but my UFO's got over whelming and I got a HQ16. At least now I can finish tops. Not as proficient as I would like to be, but utility quilts are fine done with a stipple.

I agree with your hubby that this equipment is a tool and a good investment. Not to mention that it makes your work easier and you can earn money with it. It will pay for itself in no time if you decided to quilt for other people. Congratulation and enjoy it. It's probably like a serger, at first they are intimidating until you know how to use it and then you can't get along without it.

Congrats on the new longarm. I am sure once you learn a few things you will enjoy it. Go to the quiltingschool.com and watch some of the free video's. They are great. You can use the advice on any time longarm. I especially liked the loading and how to baste the quilt. Let me know how it goes.
