Having taken several hours to quilt one end panel I decided to do extra careful preparation before tackling the corresponding other end. I put the quilt back on the carpet and rolled and pinned along each layer as I folded it over. This way it can't possibly come unrolled as I am twisting it about. I guess it is similar to having it on rollers with a long arm quilter but way slower. Is that what everyone else does???? ( it's big and heavy and gets my shoulders working!) What else should I know / do, girls who have quilted lots of big quilts on an ordinary machine???
