The one thing that didn't come with this Janome, one that is basically for sewing for the home vs. quilting, was it was missing a 1/4 inch foot. Try sewing without one after years sewing with one! Using tape as a guide definitely wasn't giving the results that I wanted! The 1/4" foot for my other Janome wouldn't sit low enough to pull the fabric through. After some research I learned that I had to use the same shank from the other machine. Once that was figured out I now was getting the nice even seams that I wanted. Yeah!!!
I have a large container of 2 inch squares leftover from another quilt. Now I am sashing them with 1 inch strips, chain stitching them as I go. I don't have to put much thought other than sew along which is good when I am feeling a bit exhausted. When tired it is not to wise to start anything that takes much thought.
Well with that note I need to run and check my roast, something special for Thanksgiving day. Our celebration will be this coming Sunday when my stepson will be visiting with turkey and stuffing. Yum!
Happy Thanksgiving to all!!!
Thank you for visiting and wishing you a great sewing or quilting day!
Happy Thanksgiving to you Joanie! I am thankful for your blogging friendship this past year! Congrats on your new sewing machine! I know it is very nice being able to be with family while making quilts at the same time.ReplyDelete
