OSQE Arlington TX

We are having a great time at the Original Sewing and Quilting show in Arlington Texas.  Beth Sidley is teaching a class using her “Beaujolais” pattern that uses the Rapid Fire Lemoyne Star technique.  The students are using Elna’s eXcellence 730 PRO machine for class.  This machine has the extended 11″ sewing arm, LED lighting, thread trimmers, and many other features that make your sewing experience enjoyable.  Check out this machine at Elnausa.com.

Meet MONTANA

Meet Montana, my sewing buddy.  We rescued him about 1 year ago and he is now the most spoiled dog in the neighborhood.  He is a 1 year old hound mix.  As you can see he sits on my sewing cabinet (he is a 60lb dog) and keeps me company.  He has figured out that since I am at my sewing machine all day he can be with me if he can get on the cabinet.  It didn’t take him long to figure out how to jump up.  I love having him near me.

Stay tuned to see his July 4th outfit!

Applique

blind app 1.jpgI was recently working on a quilt that had strips that I wanted to applique down.  I wanted a small applique stitch, one that actually looked like it had been hand appliqued.  My Elna machine had the perfect stitch. It is located in the Applique category and is on almost all Elna machines.

Thread your machine and wind a bobbin with matching thread. Attach the F2 Open Toe Satin Stitch foot for better viewing of the stitching.   I increased the stitch width to 1.4 so I could see a little more of the stitch.  If you thread the machine with monofilament and leave the stitch width as the machine sets it, you will get a blind applique look.  Don’t be afraid to try different settings and different threads.
