If you're trying to free motion or stipple quilt, you need to have your feed dogs down, stitch length and width set to "0", and you need to use a darning foot.  When you put your quilt under the foot, hold onto the top thread and draw up the bobbin thread so that it comes to the top of the quilt.  You are now ready to free motion or stipple quilt.

I use the tracing paper too, exactly how Hyaku said.  For smaller projects, I've also placed a piece of carbon paper between the wood and the pattern, that way you're only having to trace it once!!  As for the thinness of wood, I have no clue..lol.  You may want to do a google search on woodburning for more info.

Alot of things inspire me.  All those great quilt mags, quilt shows that make patterns look tooooooo easy...lol.  And of course just the fact that I love to be in the sewing room w/my machine.

You want to make a jewel tone quilt out of batiks?  Have I got the pattern for you, you're gonna love this....

6  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: How much should i pay for practice fabric, and how much should i buy? on: January 10, 2007 05:48:15 AM
Remembering that this is my opinion, I would use fabric that you plan on using in your quilts.  You can often buy fabric remnants at places like hancock's or jo-anns really cheap.  I would buy enough to make a small wallhanging so that you can get a good feel for machine quilting.  Who knows, that could wind up being one of your favorite and of course memorable pieces!!  Lots of luck!!!

7  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: I bought 150 2 1/2 inch squares now what.Whats your favorite ??? on: January 10, 2007 05:43:53 AM
You could make yourself a scrap quilt by making blocks out of the squares and then alternating the blocks you made w/another color, or you could use graph paper to make a specific design, assigning each square on the grid a certain fabric.  Another thing you can do is google quilts w/2.5" squares.  Good luck, and let us know what you come up with!!!
