Machine Quilting

this I have put together for a friend....   (to help her make this for a gift)....who is coming over to get this done soon.


I am quilting - in the ditch - but I have made a start at last!

Space in the borders and space in the quilt itself..  Yeehaw..

Believe it or not - this is a King sized quilt... it fits easily under my 820 Bernina.

So - here I go again...slowly but surely - in between other things of course!

Lots of lovely space on this.

Great to see you up and running again after your move
I'm sure you'll get sorted and settled into your new home soon - I know there will be lots of little things you'll want to change re your workroom set up as the glitches occur (I'm still in this process some 12yrs after moving)

Have fun! You've earned it after the long hiatus with the move. Getting the machine out and playing is always a treat.

WOOHOO look at you all set up and actually quilting...YAY.... Posh machine, all that space, mine is about 4 1/2" only even for humongous quilts, but hey-ho they seem to work out OK. Would love one with all that room though, Ohhh the thought, green with envy girl. :-)

Hi Joan, I don't think I realized that you had sold your house and moved already. Congrats!

I'm delighted to see you back doing FMQ. And this quilt is just calling out for your beautiful stitching. I look forward to seeing how you progress. I'm sure it will be beautiful.

Hey :D So - on that king quilt - what batting do you have in it? I've got a king that I really want to quilt myself, but I'm not sure it's totally feasible.
