I've just received a special delivery.. It's a brand new Brother NX-2000 Laura Ashley Sewing Machine. It's only mine for a couple of weeks while I use it and test it out.
Last evening, I unpacked it and set up in the kitchen where I'll be using it for the 2 weeks. I first noticed how large it was. It has a large throat which is great for machine quilting. It comes with the large extension table which I really like. This sewing machine is so nice and as you can imagine, it has tons of
features, feet, and stitches.
I was looking over all the specialty feet (I'm sure there were a dozen) and absolutely fell in love with the free motion foot. I think because it's an open foot and I can see where I'm going. So I decided I had to try it right away. I got out my halo and I free motioned for about an hour. I worked on the table runner that I made earlier this week. It was great to practice my feathers once again since I hadn't done any machine quilting since the spring. Anyway the bottom line is that this machine is great for free motion quilting, and I love that foot.
Can you see my feathers? They're wonky but the stitches are very nice, both front and back. You can see the quilting better from the back in the next photo.
Sew, so far so good. Now that my practice is done, next on my list is to test out the quarter inch foot and get to work on making a full size quilt with this Brother NX-2000. My kit is cut and I'm raring to go... but more about it next week once I've made some headway.
