FMQ and playing

Yesterday I was very kindly able to use a friends Sweet 16 while she worked.
How wonderful was that.
Here is what I achieved... in 5 hours straight :)


I used different threads ...mostly varigated coton...but the feather was with rayon 40wt
This one was all done with yli 100 silk on the top... and did take me some time to get the tension right.  I didnt have any luck with Invisafil

Now back to work on my Bernina 820 :)  

I did have such a lot of fun!

Thanks Rhonda :)

Neat to see what you got up to - isn't it a fun machine?!!

I've had the opportunity to work on a friend's Sweet 16. It's amazing how much faster quilting goes when I don't have to keep shifting the quilt so much!
Beautiful quilting you have done here!

Well Joan, you know I'm a fan but I have to say, good work! It looks like this machine is a good fit for your talent too.

Wish I could turn the corners like that....need to practice.
