This weekend's goal ...

Is to quilt this queen size top ...
On this standard sewing machine ...

[note the 7.5" opening].

I've had TONS of advice from quilters on Flickr with tips and tricks to getting this accomplished ... I am full of optimism!  Stay tuned ...

Happy New Year!

All the best
Lisa

  3. Good luck - I've done a 72" quilt on my Singer, which has a much smaller throat size, so you may do ok with your Pfaff! It'll be interesting to see how it goes!

  5. Well ... the plan was to do meandering ... but I am having another 'cabin sewing moment' in that I left the darning foot in Seattle. So since the goal is to get it done this weekend ... straight lines it is!

  7. You can do it! My machine has a similar sized throat and I have quilted several large quilts. Just remember to take breaks and relax your shoulders :)
