I just finished quilting (SID) and binding my hubby's military quilt (see post here). The quilt was big, bulky and HEAVY but my Janome never missed a beat. Hubby wasn't sure I could quilt such a big quilt on the machine. I only broke one needle and that was my fault. I am so proud of my little machine! She held her own today with a massive quilt. So she gets to rest for a few days....because I am so sore for all the sewing, 7 hours worth today just on his quilt!
