    I have searched for tips on how to machine quilt using home quilting machine and the little gracie frame or any other frame and machine and have failed to locate any tips specifically for this combination. Do you know where I might find this kind of information? I would appreciated your help very much. Judy

    Hi, I have decided to make a variation of the drunkards path quilt for a friend of mine and was wondering if you have any techniques and words of wisdom for cutting and sewing the arch? Any help would be really appreciated? Thankyou, Jane

    Penny,
    So many of your show how to videos get cut off either in the end or middle. I have missed out on so much as it just stops and wondering if you knew about this problem. I love this place, and I love learning quilting. I have an 83 year old quilting teacher who doesn’t let me get away with nothing! She’s the best.

      I suspect it has to do with your internet connection. Maybe you can download the video to your computer before it starts to play. That way, you don’t have to wait for the files to catch up with themselves.

      It’s a beautiful quilt! I usually get inspiration for quilting the quilt as I make it. Having not made the quilt or seen it in person, it would be difficult for me to make a suggestion. Have you asked her?

      Happy Quilting!
