SewCalGal is hosting a free motion quilting challenge that lasts all year. Each month a quilting expert gives their advice and demonstrates how they quilt. March's expert is Ann Fahl and below is my practice piece for the month. By the end of the year, I'm hoping my FMQ has improved a lot.
Yesterday I was able to do my FMQ practice pieces on my new Janome 6600 sewing machine!!!
Wednesday DH and I went to the sewing machine shop to pick up my sewing machine. While waiting for the repairman, we looked at some sewing machines and DH told me that he wanted to get me a new one for our 50th anniversary (in August)!
This sewing machine quilts like a dream and it has a larger space, so it will be easier to quilt large quilts. Yea!!! It sews a lot faster than my old machine and has other features that make it easier to quilt. I can't wait to do more quilting on it. I better hurry up and get some tops sandwiched! I'll see you later!
