    Re: Exercises for wrists sore from hand quilting?

    Sewbee, love and hugs to you as well, sadly cancer is all too prevalent in our lives now, I'm pleased that the lymphedema hasn't deterred you. May God bless the man that invented the sewing machine, he was definitely a keeper, even if he did do it for commercial reasons rather than to make his wife's live more enjoyable.

      But I don't know how to machine quilt. I already learned how to machine piece. I originally hurt my hand when I was hand sewing, so moving to machine piecing helped a lot with that. But machine quilting is something I have not been able to figure out.

        Andrilla - just hang around, keep reading posts, we're most of us in the same boat with you. Check out some of the stitch in the ditch tutorials, then some free motion quilting . . . it will become natural for you . . . as I hope it becomes for me, too.
        Sometimes, when there's a raging fire,
        it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

            I'll check them out! I hope to eventually get one of the big machines that are super expensive and take up the whole side of a room. They attack to a quilt rack, and I'm doing a terrible job describing it, but that is what I want. A Mennonite (or maybe Old German Baptist, there are a lot of different groups near here..) told me that the machine cost ore than her car. I REALLY want one of those.

              We all REALLY want one and wish we could justify the cost . . .

                  Oh, I'll justify the cost somehow. I'm really good at saving money (translation: I'm cheap, except with specific things), and if I ask my family to put money towards that for Christmas/birthdays/graduation with my masters degree (and almost no student loans!), then that should chop off a good bit of the cost over a couple of years. I've seen some for $5,000, better looking ones for $7,000, and that is just browsing around without really looking into brand names or considering used machines. It will be years before I get it, but I WILL get one.
