A New Machine

I love my new sewing machine.

This is a photo from the Internet.  Right now my sewing room is a real mess and was embarrassed to take a photo.  This machine is heavy.  So I need to do some rearranging.  I would just push my old machine out of the way when I needed to cut some fabric.  This one is too heavy.

I used it yesterday to finish my first Christmas Quilt.  What a dream to work with.  I love the thread cutter.  It cuts both top and bobbin threads at the same time.  It also has a knee lift for the pressure foot.  Both are such a time saver.  It is so quiet.  I tell you I walk by my sewing room and smile when I see it sitting on my sewing table.

I told you I finished my Christmas quilt.  Well here it is.

It looks a little wonky because I had to put it up on the design wall sideways because it was a bit too long.  I plan on working on the backing and have it ready to quilt on my new machine next week.

I showed my pinwheel blocks I made for my Walnut Grove Sampler quilt.  I put some of the blocks up on my design wall to get an idea of how it will look with the fabric I chose for the setting squares.

I wasn't sure if I would like my choice or not.  I think it gives an antique look.  This is going to be quite a large quilt.  I hope to start putting the top together later this month.

Well that's it for now.  Thank you so much for stopping by.

Hugs, Cathy

Is the new sewing machine to be used for piecing and machine quilting?

I agree the setting color makes the quilt look antique.
