honeycomb


You were expecting the sweet stuff now, weren't you?

After seeing this post by crazymomquilts I decided that I wanted to see if I could produce a similar stitch on my Janome QC6260.

Amanda Jean calls it honeycomb quilting.

Well I played around a bit and discovered that I can make this stitch so I plan to use it for quilting the owl baby quilt.

The QC6260 has quite a few fancy stitches which I'm never likely to use. Pity it doesn't have alphabets.

Newer sewing machines have a wavy stitch as standard these days but I can't see myself buying a new machine any time soon.

  2. I think that will look fantastic on the baby quilt! I really should try some of these different machine quilting techniques to get away from straight lines and in the ditch!

  5. The stitch looks great! My machine does lots of different stitches, I will have to try some out on an upcoming toddler quilt. Have fun!

  6. I love that stitch but havent been able to work it so far; I think I tried on too big a quilt and it didn't run through smoothly enough.

  7. I like that stitch. Wonder if my Janome has it? I will have to check. I have lots of baby quilts that I need to get done.
