Hi Mary, I haven't been online for awhile. I set mine up to 80 inches. That is all the room I had in my sewing room (former bedroom of youngest son). I'm through with big quilts. I want to concentrate on baby quilts and lap size, table runners and wall hangings. I used to use a HandiQuilter that my friend owns and got pretty good quilting free motion. When I try to follow a laser light, my hands become to wobbly and so the stitching looks bad. Most of the free motion quilts you see in my pictures I did on the Handi Quilter. I haven't done anything but practice on my Tin Lizzie. I almost have a quilt ready to finish. I'll probably start quilting that in 10 days or so. I'm still practicing on some muslin to see if I can do something other than free motion. Keep in touch.
Hi Mary, I just got a Tin Lizzie 18 on their closeout model sale. I set it up for an 80 inch length instead of the full length it is capable of because I only want to do little quilts and table runners at this point. I've made enough of the larger quilts. A tea shop in my neighborhood has some of my items on consignment. I have taken her some placemat sets, some embroidered tea towels, and some table runners. She's had some customers ask for some custom jobs; so with that I can satisfy my sewing needs and have an outlet for my items. I don't plan on making a big business out of it, but it fills a need.
Hi Mary, no I don't sell kits. What you saw there was how I organized my cut blocks for the Southern Stars Block of the Month Quilt. Have you started your machine quilting business? Do you have a longarm? Is that what you are talking about?
