A little kitchen vintage….moving right along……..

On this lovely 50s tablecloth from this demo/blog post and having sew much relaxing fun with the fmq. There’s no marking/stencils, just do whatever I feel like playing with….pebbles, outlining, “feather galaxy”, paisleys, “banana bunches”/”headbands”, etc. IMG_7348IMG_7349IMG_7351IMG_7350     This piece is being done on Ms Juki (Juki 2010Q), DSM (domestic sewing machine) with a #10 Superior “Topstitch” needle, Connecting Threads Essential Pro poly, 70wt, thread in both the top and bobbin. Hobbs Heirloom 80/20,cotton/poly batting. Not sure how much more will be done on this one…….there are a couple of clients’ beauties waiting “in the wings” demanding some attention! Stay tuned………………………..

    Beautiful work! I would love to learn how to do this. Could one use any type of domestic sewing machine?
    Enjoy your time here in Texas where you can have “bonus days” in January! We are expecting 70+ degrees this week.

    Take care.

      The temps are wonderful!!! And YES, pretty much any machine can be set to do free motion!!! Dropping/covering the feed dogs, setting stitch length to ‘zero’ and using a fmq/darning foot is needed to “launch”. The machine I’m using on this project is a straight stitch ONLY machine! Mechanical with no stitches other than straight!!!! I’m able to sit at most any DSM and do what I’ve done on this cloth. Doodling in a sketch book helps get the hand/mind coordination ‘thing’going and 15 minutes a day at the machine getting used to moving the fabric sandwich in ‘synch’ with the machine speed is very important BUT you can do it!!!!!! There are YouTube videos and Leah Day has a great site to get you going…..https://freemotionquilting.blogspot.com/ Leah is the one I learned from 6 years ago with her weekly quilt-alongs. Check her blog out…..it’s great!!!!!
