    Remember my WIP "Starstruck" from a few weeks ago - well it's now finished!
    All the free motion done on my Janome 6600 without marking - I can't tell you how pleased I am with the result. The quilting has taken just under 3 weeks to finish, because I only did a couple of hours at a stretch.
    Thanks for looking!

    I have seen this (not quite finished) in real life and have to say that the pics do not do it justice! K your quilting is stunning, and to think you wrsetled this monster through the throat of your Janome! Who needs a Long Arm, eh?

    Fabulous quilting. If you ever get tired of it, it could have a home at my place. Blue/white/stars - couldn't be more perfect.

    I am very impressed with your fmq. I wish I could get a tablerunner to look at good, let alone a monster quilt.

    Oh, how beautiful! This gives me great hope for what I might be able to do some day with my Elna 7300, which is about the same as the Janome 6600. But I will need lots and lots more practice.

    Oh thank you all so much for wonderful comments - I have to admit when I making the sandwich I did wonder if I had bitten off too much.
    I should have said "my 6600 and I" did it, because I bought this machine specifically to be able to do my own quilting - I think the 6600 is a great machine!
    I dont think I could have done an "all over" fmq with the weight, but if you look, it is literally one block at a time. So once you have puddled the quilt around the quilting area - forget about the rest of it, just concentrate on one block at a time. I worked a quarter of the quilt from the middle at a time.
    And yes I do "practise" alot, on scrap sandwiches, and pencil and paper too!
