Progress so far, quilting the bowties is going at a pace. I’m quilting with every spare moment at work, mostly in the quieter evenings and I’m nearly finished.
Decided to try very close together straight lines, the Janome 6600p has a large walking foot and is so brilliant at fast stitching – although with speed I and the odd distration have wobbled a few times. Some customers comments have made me stop and think why I quilt, as I know I could just pop into a bedding department and buy a quilt. I find great enjoyment in choosing fabrics, cutting and mixing them up into another pattern. The piecing process is enourmously absorbing and the sence achievment of having completed a quilt top, seeing the fabrics, colours playing together is a delight. They are made with love, thought and care, not mass produced in a factory. Would be great to hear why you quilt and sew and what the process is like for you.
Do love the overall look, simple grey gutermann cotton thread with a 2.2 length stitch. Can’t wait to finsh this one!
