Joe, I made around the world quilts and my daughter had their pics printed on fabric that I made the center block. 1 had horses of all kinds & the other had dogs of all kinds. need to get sandwiched and tied, so they have them for their birthdays Jul 1 & 7. ! will be 12, the other 10. the 12 yr old made a quilt and pillow for himself on my FW--with my help of course. he sleeps with it. forgot the gs in NY -made his with fire engines & trucks of all kinds.
Beautiful quilts and your machines are awesome.
Joe, have you ever taken the ring off, the one that holds the bobbin assembly in place? I have done so to clean it when I was hoping it would free motion quilt (it doesn't), and for that reason - because it is so hard to get back on correctly - I don't use my 201 as much, although I like it. That's a shame, because it is such a sweet machine. I always make sure I hold the threads or use a fabric thread starter on any seam, because I don't want to clean a mess out of the bobbin area again. I also keep the area very clean. Have you had any of these experiences with your 201? I agree that otherwise, it is a great machine.

To be honest I don't even know how to get it off. But it can't be that hard ........... can it?
When I sew I forget to hold the thread at the start of stitching about 90% of the time. Our 201 doesn't seem to have the tendency to pull the thread back in or have tension problems at the start.
Great seeing husband and wife enjoying quilting. We have a couple in our guild and they do stunning quilts.
very nice, Joe! The patch to hide the burn is just genius!
