    Re: In Panic mode...

    Re: Conundrum (Requesting Input)

    Thank you for that recommendation. In this case, since the quilt was only a few inches from being square (50" x 55"), it may have happened anyway. I guess what was bothersome wasn't that the seam was...

    Re: Conundrum (Requesting Input)

    Thanks, Caroline. In addition to being new at quilting, I'm new at taking my items to someone for the quilting itself. I've always sent it to MSQC and have never had an issue. I was just surprised...

    Re: Conundrum (Requesting Input)

    I discovered it after it was completely bound. When I originally brought it to her, we had laid the backing out and discussed which way the seam would go in the shop, but of course, I know I'm not...

    Conundrum (Requesting Input)

    I have a conundrum that I'd like input on. I took one of my quilt tops to my local long arm quilter back in December. Amazingly, she got the quilting done very quickly, and it was a pretty pattern...
