I'm doing it on a Janome 6600 - if you can drop your feeddogs on your machine you should be able. My machine has a speed control which does make it easier than not having one, but it is achievable with practice without that. I spent hours with paper & pencil before I did it on the machine, which helped a great deal, then its just practice, practice, practice.

Machine (Janome 6600) - I would never have the patience to do that by hand!
Ohhhhhh I just got one of those (Janome 6600s). I hope I can do as well as you did! What a difference the feathering makes!

Just ordered the book from connecting threads at fourty percent off. It came up to around eighteen dollars with the shipping.
Thanks so much for the heads up!

WOW what a difference. It was pretty to begin with but it is stunning now. I have never tried free motion quilting on a regular sewing machine not sure a book would help me that much :( But you did a wonderful job.
