Love it!  I've been eye-ing this quilt for a while, but haven't had the courage to piece curves.  Great job!
3  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Re: Sewing Machine is Too Fast! on: March 09, 2008 04:17:49 PM
I just thought I'd comment and say that I know exactly how you feel!  My mother has an industrial Juki, and boy, those things are fast!  I think it may have something to do with the age of the machine; we have an industrial Singer that is about 20 years old, and that one is easier to control when it comes to speed.  The Juki, on the other hand, which is only about 2 years old, will simply not go until you push the foot pedal to a certain degree, and then it's like lightning!  And industrial machines do not come with speed adjustment, so the only suggestion I can make is to maybe use a magnetic seam guide for straight lines; at least that way your seam allowance will be uniform.  I ended up getting a home machine for my own uses; I leave the industrial machines to my mom.

I love this!  I love everything about it:  the prints, the bright spring colors, the piecing, and as everyone else mentioned, the polka dots.

Thanks so much for all the compliments.  I got the idea to quilt each color in a different direction here:

This is great!  I love the quirkiness of the lines. Awesome job.
7  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Moderne Log Cabin Quilt on: February 18, 2008 11:29:06 PM
I wanted to make a Moderne Log Cabin Blanket from Mason-Dixon Knitting but I knew I would never finish it. So I calculated the dimensions for the Moderne Log Cabin Baby Blanket and doubled the width and length of each block and made it into a quilt.

These colors are much more true:

The original is done in garter stitch, which I love the look of because it of the lines it creates.  I wanted to create the same feeling in my quilt, so I quilted each color in a different direction:

The binding is pieced from the leftovers from the top, and the backing is a taupe colored globe print

I didn't think I could manage a bed-sized quilt (this one measures 57" x 77"), but it was a lot more fun than I would have thought.  I'm already working on my next one!

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?
