Tools

I love having a big board for pressing. It’s nice to lay out blocks too.

I wasn’t in love with my Babylock Jane when I first got it but now I am and it’s nice to have both machines set up in the sewing room. I tend to do more piecing on the Elna but a quilt with nothing but half square triangles will have some bulky seams and the Jane handles bulk much better than the Elna does.

Having good tools makes quilting more enjoyable!

  1. I love my large pressing board, too. It’s helpful, but unfortunately it also becomes a place to pile fabric, patterns, and ironing. I have two machines, but one is only for travel/retreats. I’m glad you’re feeling up to doing a bit of stitching.

  2. Huh. I always associate “Baby Lock” with sergers. Surprising to see it’s a sewing machine!

    I have ironing board envy right now, lusting after that big board and the space to set it up!

    Machines set up in my sewing room: Brother Nouvelle 1500 (straight stitch for piecing), Janome Jem (zigzags), Viking Platinum 16 (deep-throat for FMQ), Singer Futura (embroidery). The Brother serger is sitting at one end of the sewing table, but not really set up. Just taking up space (I resort to the dining room table when I need to use that one). In this little 10’x13′ room, it’s no wonder I have no room for a large ironing board!
