Anyone have this http://www.sewingmachinesplus.com/BL-BLQK.php ?
It looks kind of cool and mimics hand quilting.
Welcome to the Quilting Board!
I do not have this machine but I was looking in my new brother manual and found that I have some stitch that is suppose to look like hand quilting too. That looks like a really cool machine.
Just saw it advertised in a magazine, didn't think it was available yet though
I played with one at a local shop and thought it was pretty cool. The price is pretty high though.
My Janome 9000 has a stitch to mimic handquilting but it doesn't look nearly as good as this machine. Kind of tough to rationalize buying a machine for one stitch, though. I didn't see the price. Dare I ask?
does it work for free motion quilting? some curves are just easier to do with free motion then to continually pivot and shift the quilt.
it might be fine to pivot a small project but anything more than that might get tiring really fast.
My Janome 4800 Quilter's Edition is from 2001 I think and it has a stitch that looks like hand quilting. HOWEVER<
You have to use monofilament and reg. thread in bobbin and it is SSSSSSSOOOOOOO SLLLOW....
I personally don't like the consistency of the sashiko machine, but don't know if you can adjust teh sizes of the stitches. Just seems too "perfect" of a handquilting look for my liking.
FUN toy if you have the extra money to splurge I suppose....
my sewing machine has the same type of hand stitch look as you that requires monofilament.Originally Posted by cumberlandquiltchick
i'd rather just hand quilt than use the monofilament in that way.
