Today’s Facebook LIVE – Picnic Blanket

If you love plush, cushy, cozy and cuddly, this month’s Janome Sewing Machine Facebook LIVES at 3pm Eastern are for you! Projects will focus on the “plump” side, by adding stuffing to add texture and dimension using a variety of machine applications and techniques.

Today, Celine will show you how to create a practical, yet comfy picnic blanket using the fabulous AcuFil Quilting Hoop of the Janome MC15000 Quilt Maker.

    Does the M17 have a program similar to Acufil quilting?

      Hi Amanda! The CM17 has a magnetic hoop and has many quilting designs built-in to the machine, so you’re quilting in the hoop in the same way as with AcuFil quilting. With the Artistic Digitizer software, you can create an original edge to edge quilting design, for example, which is also similar to AcuFil quilting. Happy Quilting!
