I have a new toy!
Yesterday, I went out shopping and came home with a new toy, a Pfaff Grand Quilter.
I have heard great comments about this machine that I had to try it for myself, and after a bit of a play with it in the shop, I was very impressed and bought it!
Last week at the craft show I was looking at the quilting frames, I was so impressed by one, that I really, really wanted it!
I agonized over it for a few days, even lost sleep over it, tossing up whether I should or shouldn't buy it.
I came home after the show and tried free motion sewing on my old sewing machine again, and it just does not live up to my expectations.
It has a sensor system where it finds it own tension, so there is no tension control on my machine that I could adjust...I'm so tired of it not giving the perfect top and bottom tension when free motion stitching.
Oh dear, this sounds like I'm trying to justify buying a new machine....grin..as DH says, "Not another sewing machine"
Getting back to the quilting frame, there was no point in buying the frame if my old machine was not going to give me a nice finished quilted result, so I decided to buy this new machine instead.
The frame worked great with the machine that was on display with it, but mine just was not going to work that well, perhaps later down the track when finances permit, I will think about the quilting frame again.
Bonnie has posted step 5 of the mystery quilt OC, so today is a good day for sewing on my new machine..
Have a lovely day..
