I'm am positively in L-U-V love with this machine. I had absolutely no trouble with machine quilting my latest quilt. I had a little bit too much weight to the left hand side of the machine but I can rectify that by adding another table on the left. I can't even tell you how pleasurable this was. I have always dreaded the machine quilting part of quilting. I've said it before -- I'd swear like a sailor and clear out the house. Not any more -- I didn't whine one single solitary bit.
I used the new Premo Soft thread from Fil Tec that I bought last Saturday and it was great. I had very little lint after about 4 hours of quilting. Once again I had used Fusi-Boo batting and it was wonderful to quilt through and has washed up so nicely.
Who's the quilt for???? Not a clue but I'll be ready when the need arises for a change.
I'm even using the knee lift -- something I haven't been able to do with my Bernina due to height issues.
Here's my finished quilt, made from a bunch of $1.75 fat quarters and a few discount yardage pieces from Cristina's Quilt Shoppe in Rochester.
And the pieced backing:
I was able to eek out enough of that pink fabric for the binding - phew! The quilt size is about 46" x 60".
I figured out that when I can't read the needle size stamped on my sewing machine needles I just need to take a picture and use the digital zoom to see the numbers!
My mother would call that a 'Suzy Smart' moment. Sometimes she would say it as a compliment and other times - uh, not so much. I thought I was pretty slick this time, though!
