I love all the quilts in the magazine Great job Clare Mooney.
well firstly I will show the Bernina 7 series.
Ill do other brand of machines as I have them in class. HOWEVER some machines do not have this compacity.......
I want 2 stitch lengths when I quilt.
My starting stitch length is 0.60
press # 1 on your utility screen and take lenth down to 0.60
1. press i button and then press MEM button
2. Now press #2 zig zag take width to 0 and length to 3.5
You have made a straight stitch out of a zig zag and press MEM again
press #1 again make changes as above for small stitches press the heart button
Press the middle file the saveing file
Then press the top file which is the retreaving button
Now make changes again to the #1 stitch to the length you want say 3.5
Press the heat button again and press the file middle button and there will be your second length press the yellow sqaure.
Now to retreave both of these pres the top top button again in the heart program
Here is your two saved stitches just toggle between the two.Thery are there forever or untill to press the trash button in the heart program.
SO EASY..... quick and efficient.
If you like a pivot or change the tension setting etc make changes and press these before you save them into the presonnel heart file .
Or you can make changes after just by pressing the i buttom and press MEM .
Hope this helps ....
I went to IKea the other week and could not resist this clock, so cute . It comes with seperated hexagon shapes and you put it together in whatever formation you desire. But just like ikea there is always a trick. The pieces kept falling apart so John and I glued them in place .....
Just a quick update for those who know ,John has the boot off his leg now and back to office duties for a month on tuesday next week. He has recovered very well. Today he did a great job of attaching a peg boards to either the side of my ikea fabric draws.
So everything is quick at hand just to the right and behind my chair and machine. He is very handy to have around xx
