Thanks guys!

I read all of your techniques and kind of took some from each and it turned out pretty darn well. You can see it in the finished projects forum called "DNA quilt" (yes, ok, I am a geek)

Hopefully this topic can help some other quilters too!

yes you can absolutely quilt with a regular machine. i bought a quilting foot with a 1/4-inch seam guide and it came with an arm that helps guide you (if, say, you're quilting parallel lines an inch apart or something) my machine quilts wonderfully and it's just a basic singer. just try it out and be patient!

mines just a singer too except i always end up wrecking it. like the bobbin messesm e up. but i think its cuz i shop in the scrap bin and sometimes the fabric isnt that great quality and then i sew with stuff i actualyy paid full price for and im like WOAH cuz it feels WAY better. lol sorry. anwyay ill have to look out for a quilting foot
