One of the roadblocks to progress over the last few weeks has been that if my primary machine (a Janome 6600P) is set up for piecing, then it really isn’t available for machine quilting, and vice versa. So, today I reluctantly set about reconfiguring my space so I can have my Pfaff set up for piecing and my Janome set up with the bobbin holder, foot and thread for quilting.
My Hearts Abloom wall quilt has been on my design wall for months as I keep putting off the quilting part of the project. It’s small enough that I can do it at home rather than make a special trip to the ranch for the HQ, but it still has been on the back burner for too long.
I also have several Jane Stickle blocks prepped for the handwork portion of the applique and my accumulation of blocks completed in June is growing slowly.
