Quilt when you're happy! The joy shines through in your finished creation.
Trust yourself! You instinctively know what your quilt needs next.
Listen to music or a book while quilting! A pleasant atmosphere makes you happy (see tip one :).
Get Comfortable! Make sure your chair/stool is set at the right height so your arms are positioned at a 90 degree angle.
Use the highest quality materials! Every project has the potential to become your masterpiece.
Change needle with each new project! It is one of the least expensive ways to ensure quality results.
Choose the best tools for the job! The right machine with great stitching and the ability to use multiple types of threads makes striving for perfection an enjoyable persuit. I love my Innova! Lightning Stitch is simply the best!
Visibility is important! Use an open toe foot and a quilting machine with a lot of clear space around the needle bar.
Lighting makes a difference! Using the blacklight helps define texture and allows me to see where I've already quilted.
Let your work shine! Treat your finished work like a winner and put it up for display. Just another happy moment....
