    Default 3 Tips for Quilting Big Quilts on a Small Machine



    God, Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
    The stash to make a quilt to help me cope,
    A quilt to give to comfort those I love in times of hurt, fear and uncertainty.
    And the courage to keep on sewing when life itself seems held together by a single thread of hope.

    Great tips. Something that helps me is to "puddle" the quilt up around the area I'm quilting, so that there's some slack as I push the top around to fill out the space in my current block. That diminishes some of the drag if you don't have one of those suspension clip systems.

    Also, take breaks. Gives you an opportunity to stretch and keeps your sewing machine motor from getting too hot.
