Yes, I had to do test stitch-outs to make decisions on thread colours for the big quilt (featured last week on 7th October: “JUST LOOK WHAT YOU CAN DO WITH THE NEW JANOME HORIZON MC15000”). It took quite a long time to stitch that wing so I was very unwilling to just toss the test stitch-out! So I added another wing, a heart and words from the fonts in the embroidery mode of the JANOME HORIZON MC15000 and……………..voila…..another quilt was born!
I tried my hand at doing hearts for the free motion quilting. This was the first time I had done hearts so I doodled a bit first on a scrap & then just jumped in & free motioned the whole blue background. Clearly needs practice but I was happy with it for a first attempt. See close up pic’s below:
