I had fun finishing off these cuddle quilts for the hospital while practicing my free motion quilting and using my new Janome 8900 sewing machine.
I could not decide which pictures to use, so of course I used them all....
Leah Day suggested that we use a panel to practice our FMQ...As it happened, my sister had just found one on sale at Hancock's. I went around the animals and did some funky stars. There is a ...new to me... stitch that is a double serpentine. I used that here on the binding. I never drop my feeddogs to FMQ..just like Leah...a Leah wannabee....but on the 8900, I found that I had to....hmmm I also had to move the needle pressure to one instead of the average five.
There is a feature on my machine that is a tacking feature. I tried it out here in the center of the pink squares after free motion quilting the main parts.
Today, I am linking up to Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish it up Friday!
