Use prostitcher to baste layers for handquilting

edited September 2011 in Ask An HQ Expert
I am looking for advice on using my Prostitcher to machine baste a very large quilt in preparation for hand-quilting. I was thinking to use channel lock feature, but maybe there is a better way?


  • Maryann,

    You can put your machine in manual mode at around 17 to 20 percent and move your machine quickly across your quilt and it will make large stitches.

  • Can you explain the 17 to 20 percent? I have not heard this terminolgy before.
  • Thank you Cheryl, I will try this. Yes I have the HQ 16 and I am familiar with handle/manual control. I just had not heard of the speed being expressed in terms of a percentage....
