Look at you go!!! I started out with a frame and my home sewing machine. I really liked being able to have more freedom but the home machine just didn't cut it. Your photo looked like you can use pantographs. You'll love that too, if you can use them. Your DH will know where to find you for the next few weeks. :lol: :lol:

yes, we can use pantographs, but the photo in this post ONLY shows freehand stuff I did!

You're just getting too good on that machine.....very nice work for free hand. Looks like you have mastered the Bailey already.

One thing I forgot to ask that I wondered about...if you take the machine off the frame, can you then use the Bailey as a regular sewing machine on a table top? Probably a dumb question but I'll ask anyway.

the Bailey machine is a freehand quilting machine - and has NO feed dogs - they aren't just dropped - they aren't even there!...

which is fine by me - I didn't buy it to use to sew with - I bought it for quilting...

Now it could be used for stippling/meandering etc....

Oh, dear ... you're making me really want to buy a 15" Bailey! I'm trying to quilt on a frame with a Juki, and I know it would be so much easier (clearly) and more fun if I had more quilting "space". Enjoy!

Great job! When I first got my Tin Lizzy, I forgot to lower the presser foot, too! It through the timing off and my husband had to learn how to re-time it. Oh what a mess! I don't forget that anymore. By the way, I just free-handed feathers on a quilt for the first time, what fun and they look great for a beginner. You've got to try feathers!!!
