I put Merry Sunshine on the big frame yesterday and today I started quilting it. I took the picture when I was about half way through the session. I have finished the orange sun and all the rays, as well as the blue of the sky. I started working on the letters but ran out of steam. Re-threading the machine for each color is a major chore on this machine. Since it runs so fast everything has to be threaded through a hole rather than a slot that you can slip the thread through. However, the quilting itself goes incredibly fast. On this one I am doing all free motion and it's fun to try all sorts of different stitches. I am also using cotton batting for the first time. It's been quilting like a dream so far.
