These embroidery design banners were given turquoise satin borders.
HINT: iron fusible interfacing onto the back of the satin fabric. It makes it SO much easier to work with……less slippery; easier to cut and feels a little more like working with cotton fabric.
The banners are reversible and were quilted using the wonderful serpentine stitch (which may also be found on the JANOME MC8900 by the way). This stitch has become very popular in the quilting world as an alternative to straight stitching in the ditch. When stitched using the ACUFEED FLEX FOOT with either the DITCH QUILTING or OPEN TOE attachments, the quilting goes super fast and looks pretty sharp. Why don’t you try it today……..visit your local JANOME dealer and ask for a demonstration of all the many wonderful things this NEW JANOME MC15000 will allow you to do in your sewing room as you make wonderful new projects.
These banners were bound using the JANOME QUILT BINDER SET for 9mm machines. Once again, I made sure the satin fabric was stabilized with a fusible interfacing on the back, cut into 2 inch strips & fed into the Binder attachment to get my banners completed lickety-split fast. I am not just saying this……I had a huge amount of sewing projects to complete before we went down to Las Vegas for the launch of the machine at our International Dealer Convention. So I needed no fussing around! I needed slick, quick techniques using JANOME tools which are tried & tested and are really the very best thing since sliced bread!!
