When sends a coupon...

I had to use it to pick up these fun fabrics. I have been wanting some Nicey Jane for awhile now, so I picked these up, along with some Barbara Jones Summertime (I love that aqua dot), and a Dream On Flower Power, and some Meadowsweet Henna Garden.

A New Foot

I received my new O2 foot from Janome last week. It's the new 1/4" foot that replaces the O foot.

Janome made the new foot after getting comments from several Janome Horizon users that the O foot seemed to be a problem when sewing over seams.

The new O2 foot has the cutout on the back which allows it to move smoothly over the seams. I was impressed that Janome took customer feedback and made a new and improved foot. Everyone who purchased the Horizon before October and registers their machine online with Janome will receive the new foot.

Blogger's Quilt Festival - Fall 2010

This quilt is my latest finish made from Moda Fresh Squeezed fabrics. I finished it a few weeks ago, but decided to reveal it at the Blogger's Quilt Festival. I used a layer cake to make this one. I really like how it turned out, it's bright and cheery and very orange.

Here is the back, I used some of the extra 10"x 10" squares in random positions.

And here is the quilting, I used little loopy swirls. Overall this was just a fun quilt to put together.
