My Bailey is here!

Yippee, I so love the UPS guy.  Look what he brought me yesterday:


Ok, so I was a little bit intimidated by all the parts in the box.  Luckily, Mary (who I bought it from), had everything set up, and a page of tips, all I really had to concentrate on was getting the wheels for the stitch regulator on properly. 
Before I could set this all up today though, I had to finish the quilt that was 3/4 of the way done off the frame.  I did it, but it was a major hassle!  I think the machine didn't want to go!  I had threads shredding, breaking, I kept running out of bobbin thread, and having to wind more, etc.  I got to the last 3 inches of quilting, and ran out of bobbin thread again!  But it did get done.

It's one of Bonnie Hunter's mystery quilts, Roll, Roll, Cotton Boll.  It is so big, almost too big for my frame!  I had about 2 inches on each side to attach to my clamps for tension.  I used a soft gray thread, and an allover swirl design to quilt it.  I can't wait to put the binding on it, and use it on my bed.
So, this morning, I got up, and what did I do first thing:
Made a big cup of coffee, I was going to need it!
I then proceeded to take my Janome 1600P  with its stitch regulator off the frame.  It took a little while, there were wires everywhere. 
I then went ahead and got the Bailey on the frame, it really didn't take much time at all.  Like I wrote before, it was mainly making sure the wheels for the regulator were running smoothly. 


I used electrical tape to secure the button for the stitch regulator to the handle.  I am right handed, so it works great. 
Here's my first practice piece.  I love having the extra space!  I can do way bigger designs now.  I was having some issues with the bobbin not working right, but I oiled the shuttle, and loosened the bobbin case, and it works great now.  A lot of the tips and tricks I used for the Janome seem to work here too.  So far, so good.  I will do a couple more practice pieces, ( I want to try out some new quilting designs) before I load a proper quilt.  Plus, I need to get a new extension cord, mine won't work with this machine. 
Hope everyone has a great weekend (I'll be working and doing homework),
Happy quilting,
Marianne

  9. Some sort of skit resulted in a standing ovation using the audience.

    when Louis first started out working with glass;
    he used jam jars and exceptional glass bottles. Two of their famous perfume bottles were definitely
    designed in 1927. Certain of the the large majority of popular of these sorts of actresses was Audrey hepburn.

  10. Just like fact that there are jackets for women of small built.

    Picking up the color of the boot in a great leather belt is a great finishing
    touch. Rather than a jacket you will need pay special awareness
    of the sleeve length. Many men and womenlike these boots for that reasons.

    Jacket for women of small size - is trivial and fitted model of medium
    length. Individuals shouldn't drive on your own crazy choosing one particular right store to finally surf from. Better to give a preference outdoor jackets dark tones. http://filldreamgrc.com/member-only/members/sanglane/profile/
