I have two reasons for loving dark blue this month. First is that my brand new Pfaff ambition 610 is finally here in its new home.
I had originally been considering a Viking because I like the body shape with lots of room for the quilt and other features. When I got to the store I took a look at the Pfaff, which was in the same price range.
The thing that sold me on it immediately was the built in walking foot mechanism. I’ve had so much difficulty trying to attach my walking foot that I would avoid using it if at all possible. In fact, on the last Project Linus quilt in May I had pulled the quilt through the machine rather than bother with the attachment.
This machine has everything I wanted and more. it has so many bells and whistles that it will take a while to learn how to use it. It’s appropriate that I received it now during Angela’s blue month.
The first project I did was an 8 1/2-inch scrappy improv block.
Now I’m really excited about being able to do free motion quilting and other things that I haven’t attempted up to this point. So I’ll be keeping you posted.
