Last week I mentioned in the post on Free Motion Quilting Tools that we would soon be carrying the new Queen Sized Supreme Sliders in the quilt shop.
I'm so excited to announce that they will be in stock next week!
So what is a Queen Supreme Slider?
This is a slick Teflon coated sheet designed to cover your machine bed, table top, and feed dogs, making it much easier to move and position your quilt while free motion quilting.
If you haven't heard of the Queen Supreme yet, it's basically exactly the same as the regular Supreme Slider, only much bigger!
The original Supreme Slider is measures 8" x 11.5" and the new Queen Supreme Slider is 11.5" x 17," covering more than double the space of the original.
The needle hole in this new Queen Supreme Slider is positioned just 7" from one side. This means that if your machine has a 7" throat space (harp space) or bigger, the Queen Supreme can fit on your machine.
So why would you want this bigger version?
Don't get me wrong, if you already have the original Supreme Slider and find that it's working great for you, please don't feel like you have to run off and get a Queen Supreme just because it's bigger.
I've been using the original for years and I know what a tremendous difference even this smaller slider can have for making free motion quilting easier and faster on a domestic machine.
But if you don't have a slider yet, and you do have a bigger machine, then the Queen Supreme is a better investment for your quilting setup.
It's just common sense: the more area your slick slider covers, the easier it will be to move and position your quilt, and the less strain put on your shoulders and arms.
Here's a video on the new Queen Supreme so you can see how it fits on my Janome Horizon:

So that's it for this Feature Friday! It's a cold, wet day here in NC, so I'm headed into the studio to hopefully finish quilting the Australian Shadows quilt. It's been sitting on my table for too long!
Let's go quilt,
