5  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Got a new machine!!! on: January 28, 2008 07:39:45 PM
What a lovely machine!  Can you tell us what the sensor system does and how well it works?  This website:


says that it ensures perfectly even feeding.  This makes it seem like you don't need a walking foot? 

There is no tension settings like a regular machine would have. Instead you set the type of fabric you are working on - Woven Light, Woven Medium, Woven Heavy, knit... Things like that. I have some issues with the seams on dresses - but I think it will get some getting used to. I still prefer to use a walking foot, just to make sure I have the even feeding.

And thank you all for the wonderful comments. I am really loving the machine and I get excited to leave work now.

Quilts are usually sandwiched together. So the front and back are like the bread, and the batting is everything in between. Once the sandwich is formed it is quilted to keep it all together and then a binding is applied. I would heavily suggest a quilting book, I found one at borders, and it gives all kinds of tips and techniques.

I decided it was time for me to upgrade to a hardcore sewing machine. I went with the Viking Sapphire 870. This is a beautiful machine and so far works awesome. I haven't done any quilting with it yet, I don't have my walking foot - but I have been doing some piecing. I plan on getting an extension table and a lot more accessories.

 The sensor system takes some getting used to, especially when you are changing fabrics or projects quickly. But here are some pics I took:

I used a June Tailor brand - I don't remember which one. Pretty much print right onto the fabric and iron it onto fabric. Its pretty thick and I don't know how it would hold up after washing. Since its a wallhanging I didn't worry about that.

I posted this in the doll/plaything forum too - but it is also a quilt:

I made this wallhanging for my friend SewPixie (aka Becca). I wanted to test using photo fabric paper.
