Quilting Questions

“There Will Be Answers”

Do you have  quilting questions?  Don’t know where to turn or how to find the answer?

You came to the right place.

The Question thread of the quilting forum is the perfect place to ask and get an answer.  Here we will discuss what type of questions are allowed and give an example of a typical post.

When you are ready to submit you question/s, scroll to the bottom of the page and fill out the form.  We walk you through every step of the way to make it easy.


Have you ever asked yourself if a question was appropriate for a post?

Here’s a helpful tip.  If your question is related to quilting, sewing, or crafts in any way then it is the perfect question to ask.

General questions that are not related to this site, such as “Where to fill up for the cheapest gas?” or “How to highlight hair?” are not welcomed here.

It’s pretty obvious.  Right?

Here are a few examples of some questions.

  • Where to find a fabric or craft store in a particular town?
  • What size needle to use?
  • How to add embroidery?
  • Where can I find a used sewing machine?
  • Is a long arm sewing machine really better for quilting?
  • How big of a quilt can you make with a home sewing machine?
  • Can my machine sew clothes and quilt?
  • What’s the best type of yarn for a tie quilt?

As you can see this list can keep getting longer.  However, we know that you get the idea.

To further explain, the following is an example post.

Example Post

Hello everyone.

I have a question for you.  Ok, I have more than one question.  But all my questions are related.  I Promise.

How do you quilt with a double needle sewing machine? 

Why would you want to? 

What type of effect would it crate on my log cabin style quilt? 

Does anyone have any pictures they could show me?

Any information would be really helpful.

Thank you.


As you can see question posts tend to be less wordy than others.  That’s why we ask you to be thorough in your question.  It gives everyone a chance to get the full picture of what you are asking and need an answer for.

You can reply to questions by responding to the original post.

When you reply to these questions, please be as detailed as possible.  This will make all of the difference in the world to the person who posted the question/s.

Remember we’re all here to be as helpful as we can to others.  Everyone appreciates this, especially when we have a question too.

Thank you for your understanding.
