On Monday I started to work on my husband quilt. I made the top in February and since in two weeks will be his birthday, I want to finish it until then.
I thought I will quilt it in a day, being helped by my friend Jack. But I was wrong, I forgot that quilt measures 80″x92″. I worked three days on it and still I have to wash it an add binding.
Meet my friend Jack, my industrial sewing machine !
It’s very speedy and I like it! But what I like most is the large space under the arm of the machine.
While the difference in inches is not so big (10.25″ the space under Jack and 7″- at Pfaff), in reality, when I quilt, this difference is HUGE !!!
A few years ago my Pfaff needed a small repair and a mechanic came home to do the job. He was amazed by the way I used the machine – for free motion quilting.
After he repaired the machine, he asked me :
-“Why don’t you buy an industrial machine?”
I asked :
-“Does the machine have a foot for free motion quilting ?
-“No, it doesn’t, but I will adapt one for it”.
That smart young man lives in my town (and works here ) and after a few months I bought the machine. And since then I happily free motion quilt with it.
