I needed to make up a sample to paint before I attempt painting on my "vintage charm slash wedding quilt" and well, what better time to play with my new toy! I'm using Robinson Anton thread that came with the machine, two layers of low loft Quilters Dream poly batt, and muslin. Just scraps from the stockings pretty much.
I want to say the Robison Anton seems to sew up a lot like Glide...but this is the only experience I've had with it yet so I can't really say much more. I like it a lot though, and being a huge Glide fan (still haven't tried magna bobbins though) I think I'm going to like this thread.
The coins turned out really cool and are WAY easier when I can slow down with the Juki versus on the long arm! LOL
Below is some of the thread I got with the machine...plus one more that is on the spool pin.
Ooooh and there she is! My Juki! She needs a name I think ... she's a lot younger than Eunice so I think she needs a younger name...I'll have to think on it! LOL
OH! One more goody the Husband bought me...I have been wanting this book forever!!! It is out of print and kind of difficult to get your hands on because quilters tend to hang on to it. I have never spent so much on a book and outside of Cindy Needhams Linen Quilt book I don't think I will again...but I had to have this for my collection and I love it. My Husband even got ahold of Karen and asked her to send me a Christmas card! LOL! She is so super sweet, she obliged him and it was kind of exciting to get a card from one of my quilting super heroes! :) LOL I will save it forever with the books for my children.
Alright I'm off - just had to share. I have a TON of work to makeup after being off for so long and goofing around the last few days!! :) Hope you all are getting some sewing done out there!!
