Quilting Get Started (326)

Remeber when I taught this class Quilting Get Started through Chinook College? Well I just finished teaching this class to the Langdon Quilters Guild and I LOVED it. I just absolutely love to spread the gift of quilting...

Here's my top before the quilting...it's been quilted since this photo and I will post pics of that soon...

Here's Sally's top - I love how different fabrics just make a quilt top so incredibly different when all the blocks are the same.

It's funny when you ask the ladies in the class in the beginning which block they think will be the hardest - Dresend plate, then in the end it's the easier one :) aww all about learning.

Here's Laureen's, nice job you two...

Janome Horizon Review: Update, Quilting-Get Started (123)

Welcome back to Val's Quilting where I fill you in on all the exciting stuff that's happening...

First off, update for those of you who've left comments, advice, feedback on my challenges with Janome Canada (thank you so much!). I've had several email conversations with the CEO of Janome Canada as well as heard back from Jim Findlay (while he is on holidays)...I still haven't heard back from the CEO or anyone from the warranty department about where I take my machine with this amazing 2 years full coverage warranty for warranty work? And they will not return my machine....

here's a picture of the fix we came up with for the wiggly feet, we've put a piece of tape on the edge of the shaft to provide some cushioning when the foot snaps in to make it nice and secure - it works!!

I've been sewing on it quite a bit over the last week and getting more used to the differences and the new options. Still have some quirks that I need to get used to...Any suggestions about the Janome that you can give me I'd appreciate it very much:) Looks like I'm stuck with it so I might as well start liking it ;)

So, I'll keep you posted on whatever else I hear.

I finished my Quilting - Get Started Quilt and I'm so happy with the way it turned out!! 

I quilted each block slightly different

the Oak Leaf's: raw edge applique, block 4,  I tied

The Dresden Plate, needle turn applique, block 3, I ecco quilted
