1  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: basting spray? on: August 04, 2008 02:18:01 PM
Is it strong enough to completely eliminate the need for pins?  That would be a dream!

Thanks for all of the input.  I was trying to just use my regular foot and it was holding the fabric too tightly even with the feed dogs lowered.  I bought the darning foot, I just wasn't sure that's what I was supposed to use.  I guess my initial post wasn't very clear!
3  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Free-Motion Quilting on: August 01, 2008 11:14:44 AM
I've only made a few quilts.  The first was the only one that I tried to actually quilt and it puckered a LOT!  Since, I've learned about the walking foot and that I probably needed MANY more safety pins.  The others I've just tied.  Those are ok, but I really want to make some "real" ones.  Recently I've fallen in love with the free-motion (I didn't even know what it was called until yesterday).  I took my machine in yesterday and the woman told me that she thought that there needed to be another level on the presser foot.  (So that it wouldn't hold the fabric as tightly)  How do you all do it?  Remove the presser foot? (I tried that and I would need a LOT more practice getting even stitches) Or is there another foot you use.  I looked at the darning foot and it kinda looked like that might work...  Anyway, any help/tips would be appreciated!

What a lucky little one!  How did you learn to quilt like that?  I've been wanting to learn... 
6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Is it done sewing or serging? on: July 23, 2008 09:01:58 PM
If you look at the bottom hem or sleeve hem of a tee shirt, you see the double topstitch.  Underneath it looks serged.  I got a serger for Mother's Day and have loved learning to use it, but this is something that I thought I was going to be able to do with it and was really looking forward to.  So...  is it serged and then just a double topstitch with a sewing machine, or is it a function on the serger that I may not have???  Thanks!
