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

What machine do you use for home quilting?

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

Janet, your table topper is beautiful. I have to get busy quilting and sewing again.

Sherri, I am so sorry to about your fall. I hope you heal quickly. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Thanks Barbara. I resisted getting an embroidery machine when they first came out because the designs were very expensive.  Then I bought my 1st one about 15 yrs ago & fell in love with doing it.  Now I'm on my 2nd machine.

lovely little quilt, Janet.  Makes me wish my sad hands would do pretty embroidery in a hoop again, or that I could afford a fancier machine than my trusty old Bernina 1130.  Was a pretty fancy machine in the days when sewing machines first were computerized at least a little and before I was so injured I had to take disability retirement.

Oh, Sherry! So sad for your injury.  I sure hope you heal fast and well.  Patience thru the waiting as healing does seem to take forever when one is in midst of it.  Daydream well of all you will do when you are able again

Thanks Debbi.

Oh no Sherri.  I hope you heal quickly with a minimum of pain.

Sherri - OH MY! I am SO sorry! I hope you heal quickly ... and as pain-free as possible! My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Janet - I LOVE the table topper! It's really pretty. Great job!

Here is a pic of a table topper I finished this evening.  The snowflakes were machine embroidered and the I machine quilted the top.  I laid it on my kitchen table to take a pic & like how it looks so much that I'm going to use it as a table topper instead of a wallhanging.

Really cute Sherry. Were the gnomes embroidered by the machine or was it hand applique.
