    Quite lovely and a bit intimidating! That is an big machine, I wouldn’t
    mess with it! The gentleman seems quite lovely too! It’s also funny to see
    the woman sit back and relax while the man works! :)

    Fascinating demo! I’m having a lady long arm quilt some tops of mine. Does
    the gentleman hand guide the machine along the pattern or is the pattern
    put into the machine somewhere and he’s just holding it steady? Hope my
    question is clear enough. 

  • Teresa Atkinson says:

    Hi. I like the consistency and loft of the batting you used. Is that a
    Marshall Drygoods batting? If so, would you tell me which one? I like
    your quilter. It reminds me of my own. Except mine is quite a bit older,
    I’m certain.


  • Karen Whitaker says:

    Can u refer me to a dealer/someone I can buy batting in bulk? I live in a
    remote area and there is no where with a 4 hour drive I can buy through.
    Thanks! BTW, great video! Very informative !!!!

    Very interesting. I have never seen the set-up of a quilting machine

    No problem. I probably should have extended the video to show more of the

  • sholmes52 says:

    You may be referring to the portion of the backing that extends beyond the
    edge of the quilt top. The quilt top is quilted to the edge and is finished
    by binding the edges leaving the quilt top fully quilted from one edge to
    the other and visible.

    First of all, this was amazing! I have always wondered how those worked! i
    used to sit an watch my grandmother hand quilt on this huge frame type
    think that took up her whole dining room! This looks much faster! lol
    Seriously though, I really enjoyed this video, and whomever pieced that
    quilt did an amazing job!! It’s simply beautiful. All i can do now are
    fence rails!! lol

    I enjoyed watch this video and was surprised to see the top is one that I
    have made, but have not had it quilted yet. I would like to use the same
    design but not sure where to get it..can you help me out ? Pat

    What happens to the 2 inches or so at the bottom and top of quilt that were
    left unquilted? These should have been basted down and pins removed then
    continues on with the quilting. Do the customers not question this? …just

    I loved this video, of course I love Gammill Quilting anyway. I bought a
    used Gammill years ago, and I think this gentleman is the one that
    demonstrated it. He was so great, and so gracious to me. I hope he can
    continue quilting as long as he can, because he knows what he is doing.
    Thanks for the video.

  • Denis Essiambre says:

    My mistake then. It’s just a number of us from another quilting forum
    watched this and a few others noticed this same thing.
