Ive just spent a couple of hours with the Mega Beast (aka the sewing machine) as it needs taming and showing who the boss is 😉
I mainly played around with different stitches on different types of fabric to see what they looked like. Also I experimented with trying to get the needle to sew where I wanted it to and make it turn round corners and so on…
This is a red nature themed art quilt which Ive just finished making tonight, it consists of various layers of organza, felt, fabric and a skeleton leaf all sewn together to make a quilt. I wanted to use up all the red thread in the machine so I could thread it with a new colour so this ended up being a red colour scheme.

This is what the back looks like:
You’ll be please to know that Ive successfully changed the threads on the machine….with no instructions!!
