Daughter Christy…my main quilter for the last 10 days.
She fell in love with the Handi-Quilter16 and was pretty much inseperable from it! That was a great thing for me.
We only had one moment of panic when we got a motor stall error message. That was cleared out with canned air and some tweezers. Had a piece of thread broken behind the bobbin case.
Christy said she would be glad to take the machine home with her. NOT!!! She will have to wait, lol.
Isn’t it a gorgeous machine! It quilts a dream…we went in circles with ease. I still have the original plastic tracks and HQ wheels. I don’t have any problems with the carriage rolling smoothly. Christy got really good at doing swirls. She wasn’t brave enough to try anything else, but we’ll work on more freehand designs on her next trip.
This is the baby quilt Christy started some time ago. This was all scraps that she was stashbusting.
She had it pinned for “birthing” and to turn like a pillowcase for quilting. I edge stitched it. then she trimmed and turned. We pinned the points to an 8″ wide strip top and bottom then loaded that onto the machine. It quilted BEAUTIFULLY!
Amazing how simple 9 Patch blocks set on point become spectacular and complicated looking. I love the zig-zag edges. Good job!
