This is my cheapo sewing machine which has performed admirably for the last couple of years. However, I'm wanting to do more FMQ and the tension problems with Cheapo make me crazy. I've only been quilting for 2 years and I didn't want frustration to derail my fabric obsession! This is the last sewing day on my dining room table...yes!
So!!! I took the plunge and invested in a new machine...
Yes, it's a Janome Horizon 7700. Kissa and Sheriti are putting it through their inspection process for everything new!
Passed inspection and inserted in the table..."gift with purchase"!
AND...in it's own room too! Well, its really a spare bedroom, but still...
I whipped up an ironing board to fit on top of the dresser as well.
Not a great cutting table. It's an old card table and way too low for comfort. But it will do for now.
How much do I love the 1/4 " foot with the bumper!! OMG!
No gain! This is the Kissy Fish tutorial by Lee at Freshly Pieced. I love this quilt so much! But all that squaring up of little hst;s ...holy cow! The fabric is mostly Frolic with a few stash items thrown in.
Trying to get the placement right! Sorry about the flannel striped designboard!! I'll post a real finished picture soon.
Thanks Lee for a great quilt tutorial.
