why people use different machines for different things. On a whim I tried free motioning with the Bernina 1630. OMG it free motions like a dream. I can free motion, who knew? I even went back to the Janome to try it, and get much better results with the Bernina plus it feels better. Well Bernie is definitely getting out and getting his spa treatment this weekend. where I'm at with the trees, see below, even did some free motioning on them I felt so confident. Not sure about the results though I may take it out. This is before I did any quilting. My phone take lousy pictures


Not sure what happen to the pic oh well.

I grew up darning (FM) on a Singer 301 in the 50's. I thought I knew how easy FM was and mending holes was fun to me. Then I bought a Bernina 430 in 2005 and realized why everyone was thrilled with it- like dancing. Just no comparison. I added the BSR in 2008. But I struggled with that model in other ways, just not user friendly so I replaced it with a BL Ellisimo in 2010. We bonded from day 1 and FM is a dream, just beautiful every time and BL has come out with a stitch regulator for it.
Last weekend I went to an purse workshop with my manual, portable BL9. I didn't know we would be embellishing the fabric first. I tried using the FM plate for that model. It sits on top of the throat plate but it was too high with the the layered fabric. Tried different feet like applique and teflon but there was just not enough clearance to FM. It was painful. So I ended up doing normal stitches in a circular pattern. Lesson learned- I may need to buy a different portable sm but that means more weight to tote around! What a dilemma.

Exactly Portland I was so overjoyed with myself last night. Eventually would like to get a better table set up for it.

Were you the one who was thinking of selling this machine or not?

I really enjoy quilting. I love to play with fabrics, colors and pictures. I recently discovered how much fun applique can be. As I love making pictures, landscape quilting can be challenging, but seeing the picture come to life is so rewarding.

I had thought about it but hubby nixed the idea cos he is the one who found it for me. I don't think I would have actually sold it.
