Machine Applique

Ok, I must say, I am getting rather attached to this lovely Brother sewing machine! After I had pieced together all of my Peace on Earth hourglass blocks the other day, I set that project aside and dug out this quilt to work. on. I have had all of the pieces cut out for well over a year and thought I might as well applique them now when I have this wonderful machine at my disposal! The Brother NX-2000 has several different blanket stitches in many sizes - almost too many to choose from! I decided to go with Q-12 for this cute flower quilt and am using a nice bright green cotton thread.

Next up: quilting the hourglass blocks! I am planning to use straight line quilting with the walking foot.

I'm going to be really sad to see this machine go back to Brother on Thursday, but I'm really enjoying the time I do have to play with it!
