My Janome 6600P is back home and perfect!!!

My Janome 6600P is back home. It only cost a regular service fee. There was a "bind". But I do not know what that was as my hubby* picked the machine up for me. It needed to be timed too. And I asked for two new light bulbs as they have been flickering.

I am happy!!!

*(I was afraid to even venture in the dealership. I cannot afford a new machine. I must stay away from temptation!!!)


 I have been making blue Shaded 9-patches per Our Bonnie Hunter of www.quiltville.com fame. This is the Leaders and Enders challenge for 2013-2014. I have been making color controlled blocks.
I made a pink one first in the Sunshine & Shadows setting.
This setting is called Whirl a gig.
This was pieced on my 1932 Featherweight (Sissy). She really was a joy to sew on but I  missed the needle down and the knee lift features from my Janome.


I made this unit and then a mirror image. I added a single row to each end and then joined the two larger units. WHOOHOOOT! I love making these blocks. And I have to give a big "thank you" to my dear Hubby. He helped me design the layout. And kept at me when I wavered!!!


And I am working away on making little spool pin thread doilies.
XOXOXOXO Subee

Beautiful quilt. I love all the blues and how you have the design set. Glad your Janome is back home.

Congrats on your good machine news/bill. Love your setting for those cute 9 patches!

Your quilt with all the blues sparkles. I like the play of the different shades of blue.

I had to have a bulb replaced in my Bernina. I asked for a spare and they told me it is not something I could change myself.

Suebee, that is really gorgeous! As usual you have outdone yourself; what size did you make it? I'm glad you were able to get your machine back with minimal cost; I went through that exact same thing with my machines last month; first my serger, then my Esante

Cheers,
Francine

You are doing very well with the split 9 patches. I have only 2 made since she posted it.

but my Pfaff is my fav, mostly bc of the needle up/down....Much easier to get that Janome fixed than buying a new one!

Your blue and neutral quilt is beautiful. What is the pattern for your spool pin doily. It is really a neat one.

I really like your whirly gig layout. That really makes a fun quilt. I can see that as a good boy's charity quilt. thanks for the inspiration.
