I want to start off today by saying "THANK YOU!", for all of your wonderful comments to my posts. I try to reply back to each of you as I receive your comments, but the last couple of days, and the next few days I am going to be super busy trying to complete our QUILT, as well as trying to keep up with my customer quilts, so I want to say "THANK YOU" to the whole group!
Your comments are very encouraging and very much appreciated . . . they keep me going! It is so nice to have the feedback!
THANK YOU AGAIN ! ! !
~ ~ ~ I wanted to start off by showing you my Quilting Studio - "DONNA'S - In The Attic" - before we get started . . .
I have a Professional Long Arm Quilting Business on the second story of our home. This is where I have tons of fun!
I have a APQS Millennium quilting machine. I have just recently added a Compuquilter to my machine. It is now computerized which allows me to offer my customers more of a variety of overall patterns for their quilts.
I will show you the rest of my studio in the upcoming days, but for now, we have got to get our quilt pinned on the frame and get it quilted!
We will now need to start by attaching the top and bottom of the backing fabric to the canvas leaders.
In this picture I am pinning the bottom of the backing fabric to the leader fabric.
. . . I will roll all of the backing fabric onto that roller.
. . . I will attach the top of the backing fabric to the top leader.
. . . we will attach the bottom of the quilt top to another leader.
. . . and, roll all of the quilt top onto this roller.
I use Hobb's 80/20 batting. It will need to be 6" longer and wider than the quilt top as well.
We will slip the batting between the quilt top and the backing fabric . . .
Before we can start quilting, we have to sew all three pieces together with a straight line across e top.
We are now ready to QUILT!
