Craigslist is my friend. Back in September, I found a listing for a Janome 6260 QC for $300. Be still my beating heart. I fired off an email to the lister but there was already someone interested. The lady promised to let me know if the deal fell through! Short story. She is mine. Husband and I drove for hours in blasted rush hour traffic, construction zones and rain. The lady had bought the machine on a whim and had used it to hem pants a few times over the past few years. The quilting table and all the quilting feet, walking foot etc. were still in the original sealed packaging!!!! Let me tell you, it was gleeful. Husband says it was meant to be and the machine was destined to be mine. He is such a sweetie!
this recipe from the Moda Bakeshop, "Blissful Confection." And I used the same pattern to make up a quilt for son and girlfriend for Christmas. I used a layer cake-Moda's Urban Couture by Basic Grey. Son had given it to me for my birthday! Clever boy. This was a perfect colour for their apartment. And I had more practice with free motion quilting... They received this quilt for Christmas too. Happiness. All of a sudden I had 4 quilts completed! Wahoo!
