15 Minutes of Play, I could see I liked the more free style of piecing, plus then there is the wonderful class on Craftsy from Joe Cunningham. Link is to the video on YouTube about one of his classes. Fabulous ideas and it frees you up for some creative design as well. But, of course, my work isn't anything like the pros, but I have a lot of fun doing it.
Summer Quilt - I plan on using Mountain Mist Cream Rose batting and either Signature cotton or So Fine #50 for quilting, though MaxiLock is another possibility. Whatever it is the thread will be a very light pink!! Light pink blends and is just such a lovely color. I am going to use Mountain Mist Cream Rose because of its somewhat thinner body and drapy qualities. At this point I have several blocks already made and really want to finish this before Summer!

Meanwhile, I ordered this foot from Ken's in Alabama. It is a guide foot, and I anxiously awaited it. YES, it fits my Elna 720 and I think it will be fine on my Janome 8050 as well. It does not matter if your machine is high or low shank when a foot is a snap on! Oddly, the foot included a different needle assembly screw than my Elna has, and the directions for the foot say to change this out to this new one. Well, I tried the foot and it works without doing that switch, so I called Ken's and talked to a tech. He says no need to change out the screw unless your machine has one that interferes with the foot itself in use - so be sure and TEST the thing out slowly to see if the needle bar screw hits the foot in use. Mine does not.
