We heard from many quilters after our last post about quilt suspension, so we’re following it up with a 2nd short video that shows you an easy way to suspend your quilt if you don’t work with your machine set up as we showed earlier. This is a very similar system but it can accommodate many alternative machine set-ups:
(The photo above is a Babylock Tiara and this same set up works great for the Handiquilter Sweet 16 and Pfaff Powerquilter 16.0 as well.) Here’s a quick video that shows how it works for these machines as well as others, including the Bernina Q20 and traditional machines in or on a cabinet:
One more thing…I’m happy to say that we now have the Line Tamer available in 3mm thickness, designed specifically for use with the Westalee low and medium shank ruler feet. You can find it by clicking here. It works exactly the same way as the original line Tamer, but is safe to use with the low and medium shank Westalee ruler feet. I’m hoping to have some type of a quilting post up soon, but I haven’t touched a machine in nearly 3 weeks except for doing demos, so I need to get something made so I’ll have a picture or 2 to show! Happy Fourth of July and celebrate safely!
Ever since I posted about suspending my quilt a couple years ago, I’ve received lots of questions about it. Ern and I have been playing around with different types of quilt suspension systems, trying to come up with a system that is lightweight, easily portable and one that does the job. His latest system is my favorite by far and we made a short video that explains how it works:
I have been the beneficiary of Ernie’s problem solving/handyman skills for many years, and he is opening those same skills up to you as well! Ern’s Quilting Suspension System is available now in our online store and you can find it by clicking here. The backbone/clamp portion is available in either dark blue or purple, at least while supplies last. Happy Quilting!
