    Strawberry Brick Road

    I used my new Janome 12000 to quilt this. I took designs and mostly did the outline on the quilt. Embrodiering the whole design is too much with the batting to work with. Some of them worked but not all. It knots up, and makes a terrible mess. It also makes the quilt too stiff.
    But this the first one on my new Janome for the BF's granddaughter. It was fun doing it, watching the machine do it's thing, and just "WOWing" all it can do.

    Beautiful, I just do a large stipple or FMQ or a large meandering. Makes the quilt feel softer and more comfortable. I think too close of a stitch or too many make them feel stiff and not as comfortable. Just me.

    Very beautiful. I love the designs and the fabric you picked. And I especially love the label with the little girl footprints. Too cute
    Thanks for sharing.

    Love it - the colors are perfect for a baby girl and love the embroidery designs you used for quilting

    Very pretty. Beautiful work. I usually meander on my baby quilts and I do find if i quilt too close it makes it stiff. I'm still trying to gauge my meandering.

    Even with an embroidery machine, this looks like a lot of work. Beautiful.

    Very pretty and you gave me some ideas on quilting with the decorative stitches.
