    My New Toys !!!!

    I am doing the happy dance!!!
    Today I picked up a Janome 1600P QC and she (Sally!!!) is now happily on my Happy Jack frame (Jack !!! duhh) and working together very well. It's the operator who isn't working so well - I can see that this is going to take lots and lots and lots of practice !!!
    I have spent the day practicing on a sample top - OK not so good - but hopefully will get better with time and all those quilt tops waiting to be quilted will be done sooner rather than later.
    I have purchased a quilt pounce so thinking templates might be one way to go - so will be looking at getting some templates later when I've managed to have a bit more control.
    If anyone has any suggestions for any books or tips that would help my huge learning curve - it would be very much appreciated.
    Something tells me nothing else will be done this weekend - I'm having too much fun !!!!

    What is a happy Jack frame? Or is that what you have named a mega type frame?
    A time to tear, And a time to sew;
    A time to keep silence, And a time to speak;

    Congrats! Are you sure her name isn't Jill? Then you could have Jack and Jill!

    The Happy Jack is a frame made by Brindabella Quilting here in Australia (here is the link if you would like to have a look).

    There is not enough room in my sewing room for it - what am I saying ??? - there is hardly enough room in the sewing room for me at the moment !!! It's a little (lots) disorganised but I have a fairly large lounge room so it sits there at one end and I can easily get around both sides of it.

    The frame and tables were $1850 (free delivery because I bought it at a quilt show).
