How to Use This Blog

Since we have lots and lots of videos here, you will need to know the best way of finding what you are looking for. Each post has the video(s) of the topic it is about. Sometimes there will be more than one video that is a continuation of the previous one. These videos will be posted together within the same post. To find what you are looking for, either use the search box or the list of categories posted in the right column.

The IQ system is constantly evolving, so please keep in mind that some of the older videos may show features that have been replaced by newer ones, or buttons that have changed position or names. However, the videos have not been removed because the methods demonstrated are still valid.

Helen's iQ - stitch length

In this video I make a test piece that helps in understanding, and remembering, how to set my quilting machine and iQ to get the stitch length I prefer. This can be a challenge for new iQ owners so taking a little time to do this is well worth it. I am using IntelliQuilter on my Gammill Premier whic has the IntelliStitch stitch regulator. I am stitching on an old sheet with scrap batting.

After doing these simple lines, sew a few more lines where you change both the settings on iQ and your machine speed. Make clear notes on the fabric.

I encourage you to stitch many samples - more than I show in the video. Label them so you have a quick reference guide. With experience you will get to know your settings but this is a good way to start out.
