November 2012 FMQ challenge

I didn't make it home in time to enter the November challenge.  The tutorial was provided by Sarah Vedeler, who  challenged participants to practice spirals.

I'll need to keep practicing, but here is my effort on our first full day back in Australia.

I'll also have to do the October and December tutorials, as well as at least one of the bonus tutorials to make sure I have completed at least 12 of the challenges.

Plus I have to finish sewing the GMFG lap quilt, a dresden plate lap quilt and quilt my sister's double nine patch quilt.  I think I need a new sewing machine!

I looked at the prices for the Janome Horizon 7700, which have been heavily reduced as Janome is releasing two new machines.  My LQS doesn't have any but have priced a Horizon 8200 at about $300 more than the best price I found in Australia for the 7700, so I'm off to test drive it on Saturday morning.  I'm excited - maybe an early birthday present?

    1. Thank you Joan. Your work is beautiful.

  2. Great spirals! Good luck finding your new dream machine. I have the 7700 and like it very much, though it does have its moments - as does its operator, LOL!

    1. Hello Pat. What sort of moments does the 7700 have for you? I completely understand the operator moments for me ;(
