This Way Quilt by Alissa Haight Carlton

PrintE-mail

Our newest project showcases a quick modern-inspired quilt.

884-ThiswayquiltAlissa Haight Carlton of Handmade by Alissa is known for creating unique, modern-inspired projects, and her newest contribution is no exception! This quilt is quick to make but also has a strong visual impact. Your fabric choices will play a large role in the end result. If you’d like to create a color gradation like Alissa's, take your time picking the right fabrics. A great tip is to take a black and white photo of your choices to make sure the saturations and tones are working correctly.

Alissa made this fun little baby quilt top on the Janome Horizon Memory Craft 8900 QCP. The 8900 features AcuFeed Flex, an integrated, yet removable walking foot which perfectly feeds fabric from the top and bottom of the quilt. It is ideal for filling large amounts of white space with even stitching. Visit your local Janome dealer to test drive this amazing feature for yourself!

Video: Sewing Vinyl And Velvet With The Roller Foot

PrintE-mail

229-sewing-vinyl-velvet-roller-foot-videoThe roller gives this foot better traction on shifty fabrics, and keeps it moving smoothly over sticky fabrics.

The Roller Foot gets its name from the little internal roller that helps feed "difficult" fabrics under your needle. It gives you better traction when sewing slippery materials like chiffon, velvet, and organza. And it keeps potentially sticky materials like leather and vinyl moving along.

You simply snap the foot on your sewing machine and sew like you normally would. To see this foot demonstrated watch Roller Foot Video: Sewing Vinyl And Velvet

The Roller Foot comes in two sizes, a 7 millimeter width for Horizontal Rotary Hook models and a 5 millimeter width for Oscillating Hook machines.

To find out which one is right for your machine, see your local Janome Dealer.
