It is sixty-three by eighty and almost as busy as the OBW. This is strictly a stash quilt. I did not purchase any fabric for this. Yes, it is true, I carried the narrow white and wider dark green border over from the OBW. Actually, I decided on these borders first.
I wanted to use the Wittenberge 201. What a nice machine. It is so quiet. It took me a while to get it set up in the treadle stand. The coil spring belt worked great for the 15-90 but it was too tight for the 201. The machine worked, but it was just too much effort to treadle. If I want to switch these machines back and forth, I guess I will have to replace the coil spring belt with one that is just a bit longer. I found a leather belt, set it up and went to work. What a nice machine.
It is so quiet. The Necchi is a thunker (must have something to do with the mounting in the cabinet.) The 15-90 also clunks along, but I forgive it because it will go through anything. This 201 is almost silent. It is a pleasure to use.
I am now ready to quilt. I have been practicing swirls with paper and pencil. I suck.
I watched this video (for some reason it will not load to Blogger directly from YOUTUBE.)
She demonstrates this on a table. I will use my frame.
There is another demo using the frame.
Next up, getting the 24 ready so that I can use it to chain stitch the leaders to the quilt. I suppose I could use the Wilcox and Gibbs. Now, there's an idea.
OK. So I had to publish the post before I could see how the video came out. I must be somewhat deaf. The machine is much quieter in real life.
