What machine do you use for home quilting?

Started by AidaCJ/NH. Last reply by Janet/MO Dec 12, 2014. 20 Replies

I have a Janome 1600P which came with a New Joy frame.  It's fantastic for free motion quilting. However, I notice that when I do an upward stitch, the stitches skip, although the speed has been set…Continue

Hey Y'all,Who prefers free motion quilting vs. in the ditch on your HSM? I prefer in the ditch just because it is easier to handle the massive quilt. I have done free motion on one quilt and it was a…Continue

Ok.  I've used this stuff before with no problems and now, all of a sudden my machine has decided it hates it.  Actually, both of my machines!  Naturally I'm in the middle of a big project and not…Continue

How cool! Your hubby is a keeper!

It also folds up for easy storage!

Look what Hubby Doug made me! It's a ironing board cradle to keep my fabric and tops off the floor while ironing. Saw this in Nancy Notion's for $79 and we made it for under $20! What a clever hubby I have! Now my fabric will stay clean off the floor from kitty hair and dust! SEW HAPPY!

It is 54 inches long and 38 inches in height. I just used some sunflower fabric, about 2.5 yards and if I want to, I can make several more covers to match the seasons! Only took about 3 hours altogether with sewing and sawing time!

Janet - your quilt and table runner are just gorgeous! Great job! Yes, your oldest daughter will have a period of adjustment ... I hope all goes well for everyone!

Thanks Amanda.

Here is a pic of a tablerunner I made for my oldest daughter, who is getting married again on the 28th.  She will be moving from Appleton WI, where she has lived for 23 yrs, to Elk River MN.  Her 2 daughters will be staying behind in WI so I know that will be a real adjustment for her as they are all very close.  I wanted something springy so came up with this idea yesterday & finished it this evening.  I'm gong to make 2 placemats to go with it.
