The Quilting Bug uses a Gammill Statler Stitcher® Machine.  The Statler Stitcher® utilizes computer software and hardware to operate a longarm quilting machine capable of stitching almost any design. A Gammill® machine equipped with Statler Stitcher® can handle an intricately patterned king-size quilt and is guided by the computer instead of by hand. The system can determine the pattern size, block size, stitches per inch, and repetitions of the pattern and the offset of the pattern.


The software packages, Precision Stitch and Creative Studio can determine pattern size, block size, stitches per inch, repetitions of the pattern and the offset of the pattern so that any design fits perfectly on any size quilt with all aspects of the patterns in proportions.
