1  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Is a walking foot necessary? on: April 26, 2011 01:06:04 PM
I agree, the walking foot does make it so much easier.  I did a couple smaller size quilts a couple years ago without a walking foot and had several puckers which was disappointing, so I gave up on the idea of ever machine quilting again.  Recently I decided to get a walking foot and try again.  I machine quilted a baby quilt last weekend, just on a diagonal every few inches, and it was soooo much easier, and enjoyable.  I was so surprised that I was able to do that with my own machine!

These look great! 
I've made a couple myself, but haven't ever tried the edge-stitching. I'm too afraid to b/c of the thickness.  Any tips on this?  Yours look like they were a breeze and didn't give you any problems!

How beautiful!  I really like all the different block patterns, but yet they still all look like they belong together.  I might need to get some of the print you used for the backing, I love large prints like that.

I just got this machine right before Christmas, haven't had time to start using it till last weekend.  I'm having a problem with thread tension when I do reverse stitching.  Has anyone ever heard of this on any type of machine?  The tension is fine when doing basic forward stitches, just not on reverse.  So I'm clueless as to what I'd need to adjust, if regular stitching is fine??

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

Oh my goodness, this is adorable!  I love the fabric you chose.  I made a nursery set for my daughter who is now 6 months old, I too was relieved when it was done!  I did curtains, bumpers, crib skirt, and a cushion for the rocking chair.

Congratulations on the great work, and the baby!

Great work!  I'm going to try making a rag quilt this weekend myself.  So it looks like you quilted an X on each square before you started sewing them together?  I was looking at some patters online earlier this week, but dont' recall the couple I looked at mentioning that.  It looks like a good idea though, think I'll do it on mine.

I'm sorta new to crafting, but want to make these for some friends getting married this weekend.

How do you get the font that big?  I was thinking I'd just create the letters in Word and print onto an iron-on transfer sheet, but can't get the font anywhere near that big.  Could someone point me in the right direction to do that?  Thanks a bunch!!!  This is a great idea!

Could you tell us what pattern you used?  I LOVE the mid-sized bag!
