    BATTING by the ROLL help!

  4. Re: how do you unquilt nests under backing on longarm?

    So you rip and just stitch over it? You don't knot of the threads where you finishing ripping? Does stitching over it hold it?

  10. how do you unquilt nests under backing on longarm?

    I've seen a million posts about setting tension to avoid nests under the backing during longarm quilting. Having said that, that's not what I need.
    I'm wondering how YOU rip out those nests while...

    It's that tweaking the top tension...

    Re: Practicing on longarm

    Practicing on longarm

    What do you use exactly to practice on your longarm? Do you use sheets from yard sales? Do you always have to buy batting? Can you use an old blanket instead of batting? Do you have to have some type...

    Re: Which threads for longarm machine?

    Do you use it for top and bobbin? Is it cotton or poly or blend? The dealer I bought the longarm machine from I believe suggests Signature? Thanks GrammaBabs for always being helpful!
