I write. I quilt. I cook. I take photographs. What else is there?

Design Wall Monday

I so seldom get to post on Mondays anymore and I'm excited to be able to post today.  I've been working on my Liberated Round Robin.  First round was triangles.  Second round:  squares (see, I have two).  Third round, which I just finished, was rectangles.  Got lots of those.  Next round will be curves.  That's where I am.   I have no idea where this is going, but it's fun, isn't it?


I'm still working on mom's quilt.  And, I'm looking at buying a new machine.  My little Janome 423s is a good machine for casual sewing, but not intended for quilting or the heavy use I give it.  Before I break it or something, I'm looking for a new home for it.  I'll sell it cheap ($125, I paid $399 just over a year ago).  There's nothing wrong with it and it's been recently serviced.

I'm thinking a Juki TL 98Q.  See that Q?  It means quilt.  I've read nothing but good reviews on it.  What do you think?  Have you heard anything about this machine, good or bad?

I have seen a few antique round robins and have always thought it would be fun to do. You's is looking good.

It's a fun quilt! I love the black and white fabric in it.

I'm visiting from Design WAll Monday, and I have to say....I LOVE my Juki TL 98Q! It truly is a dream machine for quilting. It has just the straight stitch, so I did keep my other machine in case I need to zig zag or sew zippers and things. But for quilting, the automatic thread cutter is wonderful, as is the knee lift, high speed, and the very very smooth feed dogs. I bought mine so I could machine quilt and the longer arm sure makes that possible! I would encourage you to find a dealer and test drive one before purchasing. I researched online, then visited dealers to try the top two picks, then ordered online for the best price! Good Luck!

Thanks for Visiting! Come Back Soon!
