Oh Moneytree…

Will you please come visit me?

So any quilter knows how much fun it is to shove a huge quilt through their normal sewing machine. You have to make sure you don’t quilt any wrinkles or folds into it … your free motion stitches stay smooth and equal in length … your quilting stays an even density even though you can only see about 5 square inches at a time … shall I continue? Probably not since I am probably sounding a wee bit whiney.

Does this look familiar to anyone?

Luckily, my handy dandy Machingers make this part of the process a little more pleasant, but it’s still tough and hard on the back and shoulders.

So the solution to this is to send every quilt to someone with a long arm machine or buy something bigger myself. Of course being the sewing machine lover that I am, I want my own. Not a super fancy computer driven one, just something simple that has a bigger machine and rollers so I don’t have to baste.

I hear angels singing.

Isn’t she beautiful? Rollers… a table that expands to 120″… it even has storage underneath!! What sew-er couldn’t use more storage? She is the Pfaff Grand Quilter with a Next Generation Quilt Frame. Absolutely beautiful. Problem is she costs a lot more than I currently have.

Moneytree?
