I'm have been getting tired of practicing with the new long arm. Not that it isn't fun. But, I wanted to move onto a real quilting project. Below is part of the practice drawing on the muslin. I learned a lot about tension and how the touch pad works for settings on the needle up/down and spi. I made some small labels for the handle toggles so i could remember which rolled the quilt, moved it up/down & turned on the laser. I know soon it will be automatic, but for now the ole' brain needs a nudge.
So, yesterday I loaded two layers of fleece and quilted this.
It went quick. No broken threads. Good tension except in one small area where somehow the thread slipped out of the pre-tensioner.
This is a large fleece quilt. One of those bundles that was half off last year at Joanns. Approx. 58 " x 68". Snuggly warm for curling up with a good book!
