This blog is being created to record my quilting adventures.

When I started my quilting classes I was using an old Singer machine that I have had for the last 30+ years....when I started having problems with it I decided to upgrade to the Janome 6600 and then decided the 6600 would be too cumbersome to take to classes and retreats.....so I bought a Janome Gem as well!
Thinking of going back to the Singer for piecing. I am currently trying to learn to FMQ and hate having to change the setup on my 6600 for piecing to FMQ and back again?? Wondering what others do?? Do you have a machine dedicated to piecing and use another for FMQ??
I suppose once I get the hang of the FMQ it won't be an issue, but right now I'm trying to do 10-15 min a day of practice with the FMQ.....then if I want to do some piecing I am changing the setup back and forth.....cuts into my playtime!!
