|'Miss Betty' - one of my very favorite girls!|
One of my most favorite things I adore about Miss Betty - are her absolutely Beaut-ti-FUL quilting stitches:
And look a little closer - did you notice?
|Gorgeous, even stitches w/nice, sharp points and perfect tension!|
That's what I LOVE the most about Miss Betty - while others talk about how they MUST use the same color thread in their needle AND bobbin to avoid 'pokies', Miss Betty and I rarely do!
And another thing - check this out:
|Quilting out a panto - left to right from the back of the machine!|
So many longarmers talk about how they can ONLY quilt pantos from the standard, right to left from the backs of their machines. Miss Betty and I just chuckle when we hear this... Thanks to ALL you wonderful longarmers out there for reminding me just how good I've got it w/Miss Betty ;-).
And while we were quilting, got our first embroidered block finished up:
|Americana Liberty Bell all embroidered out |
for a Purple Heart Veteran quilt
Time for some shut-eye...
UPDATE: 9/16/2016 - another embroidery block finish:
Once my embroidery machine has a chance to cool off, will start on the next block - a hearts & flags block. This Star & Flag block took 3 hrs., 43 min. to complete!
