Quilt With Us

Hi! I am new to LA quilting. I have purchased the Quilt Artist II and am trying to make a continuous pattern across the quilt. I have done a pattern repeat and then merged it and I have to cut my thread after every repeat. Is that how it works or should it sew the repeats all across one row? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Is there any websites that have information on it? Thank you. Debbie

Hi Debbie,

just read this blog you posted last year.  I was wondering if you have solved this problem or not.  and if you did I am having the same issue would love to hear how you solved the problem.  I just got my machine and boy does it have a hugh learning curve.  I am wanting to do some Panto's to start with but need some help .  have you done any?

thanks

The most helpful book for me has been "Free-motion Quilting Made Easy by Eva A. Larkin".  Hooked on Feathers by Sally Terry helped me understand how to make feathers and fill in the space. Still learning, You Tubes have also helped. There may be better books on feather making. Quilting Makes The quilt by Lee Cleland has full size patterns. The book shows same quilt quilted different ways. The Follow-the-Line Quilting Designs by Mary M. Covey has full size patterns, which if you want to do the design on a border you will copy the design to make the length of the quilt. I buy all my books at least 40% off. Quilt maker magazine  now has a free motif of the month. Sign up with them on Facebook. There is also free motif by just google  "Free motif". I have been going through my collection of books and closely looking to how quilts are quilted. Stencil are still helpful marked just like you would had before getting the Longarm machine.  I really have not done too many quilts using the lazier light and roll of printed paper which I think they call pantograph. HQ is suppose to have help on it this month.

Hope this will help. Good luck. It does take time.

Need anything else that I might help you with just post on my page, then it will go to my e-mail.

Linking does go all the way across. You may have to stop, but do not tie off unless you wish. The corners are always a good place to stop and tie off if necessary, but it can also have lots of fabric layers. LA University is a good place for help and there are lots of You Tubes that people have done. Any manufacturer of LA also has You Tubes. I have learn from anything free so it is worth looking at the site even if it is not your brand. Doing a "S" shape and loops is also a good place to start. There are some good books and when I get a moment I will list them for you.
