As I was quilting Pulsar, a 72″ square lap quilt, with my walking foot on my domestic sewing machine (I have a Juki TL-2200 QVP mini), I employed one of my standard tricks to cope with the quilt bulk when I reached the corner of the quilt. I decided to record a quick video to share this tip, and you can find it here and on my YouTube channel.
By choosing a strategic starting point and then rotating my quilt clockwise (instead of counterclockwise) for the final turn/pivot, I was able to avoid having to pass all the bulk of the quilt through the throat space of my machine. This choice minimized wear and tear on me (pushing a larger quilt through the throat space can be a workout) and reduced the amount the quilt needed to be handled and smashed.
What is the largest quilt you’ve quilted on a domestic machine?
