I made this -- mostly using the new speedy machine. But then - the person downstairs said it was too loud.



This is the back of the quilt. I took these pics this am. Before I decided to spend all day FMQ in it. I was planning to just leave it SITD. But - Once I started I could not pull myself away.

After I had to stop using the industrial - I opened up the 15-91 and did fmq work with it. It is a very enjoyable machine to work on. FMQ very well.



Oh --



I like the quilt - but, I think I really need to have some fun and some time with people who make me laugh. Ive been working hard this week alone.

It's beautiful, I love that! I hope you have plenty of time to sew when they aren't home.

I see someone else loves your quilt also!

I hope it can work out - and I can try to tinker with things to minimize the issue. They both work days 9-5 as does everyone but me who lives in this building.

They said they could hear the grand quilter - but that it was not a bother. My whole house is over their kitchen. The rest of their place is in the other part of the house - and their bedroom is on the far other side. Condo living is great -- but it is work sometimes.

After sewing on the fast machine - the 15-91 felt very slow. But - it is also very quiet.

Oh, look how cute George is! He doesn't think it's too loud and neither do I. It is pretty and colorful, and George looks very happy.
