My Favorite Machines

I frequently get asked what machine or machines I use in my work. Well, Janome machines are my favorite. I like the features such as:

Since I do all my own machine quilting, I do it all on the Janome New Memory Craft 6600P. It gives me the larger opening, which I need to feed my quilts through and it also gives me the wonderful stitches I often use in the Strips ‘n Curves quilts.

In my One Patch Plus quilts I like to use predominantly free motion quilting. I love to embellish and use the Memory Craft 11000, often adding machine embroidery to my pieces (see Floral Fantasy and Obsession 2).

And lately I love to scan my fabrics and then use the scanned images elsewhere on my quilt. How wonderful is that!

Check out the following pictures for a closer look of the machine quilting, free motion needle painting, machine applique, etc. For more information, visit www.Janome.com.
