I used to have someone else quilt my quilts for me or I'd try them at home with my regular foot. They were always such a pain that I resisted picking up the chore of doing it myself again. Recently I discovered the value of a walking foot and the fun of free motion quilting. I am in love with doing it myself now and may only send off the really huge ones. I've found with a little difficulty I can quilt a twin sized at home but I have yet to try anything bigger. While I was at JoAnn's during coupon commotion I found these Quilter's Roll Clips. I was excited that something so cheap (I got them for $5) could make my quilting experience better. I tried them out today and I'm linking up with TNT Thursday with Melissa at Happy Quilting.
|Here are the Quilter's Roll Clips in the package just in case you didn't know what they might look like.|
|Here they are doing their proper job. They came six to a package and I probably could have used less and maybe I'll do three to a side when I'm working on the middle.|
|Tightly wound like this gives me so much more room!! I had no idea my machine could be anything other than a miserable quilt trap! It made working with it much easier. I was using the walking foot at this point and needed to pivot a lot!|
