    10-min Block Cathedral Window Quilted

    I made this quilt some time ago and just now got up the nerve to quilt it. I use a Janome 1600P on a New Joy Gold Standard frame which doesn't give much room for quilting. Had to roll the quilt about three times for each block.
    I used a 4 inch pantograph for the borders, turning the quilt for each of them. I quilted the top border with the panto then free motion quilted the body basting the side borders as I went.
    This pictures shows the quilt on the frame with the body quilting ready to be turned to do the bottom border.

    This shows how I basted the borders as I went.

    Just put in a sandwich of about two yard of fabric, batting and a backing and start. If you have a pantograph about 4 inches put in on and try it out. If you have stitch regulator go slow and even in movement. Seems like your not getting anywhere but before you know it your are at the end of the row and will have to roll and start again. Don't give up.

    There is a lot of zigs and zags where there isn't suppose to be, don't know if I will ever get that worked out as my frame has a bump in the middle and every time I pass over it the machine will hesitate and if I push it goes where it wants to. Trying to figure out how I can fix that.
