Furry Friend Blanket

Every cat needs a blanket...well, it's getting colder here and our cat is continually lying on the various quilts that adorn the house...

Used some of the nice fluffy wool batting that was left over from the baby quilt and used this piece as a bit of a practice run for the Start/Stop button of the Pfaff Quilt Expression 4.2.
What a hoot...somebody should have told me that you can stop by just tapping the foot control. You will have to set it to the lowest setting otherwise it is just too fast, I reckon. All in all though it works really well and you can just concentrate on moving your quilt around. I used the Sensormatic Freemotion Foot that just glides over the fabric when you are at a certain speed. This thing was finished in no time at all. Given the constant speed I found that you naturally make slightly bigger movement which results in a sort of mid scale allover pattern. This was handy...definitely will use this again. Also used the Overlock stitch for the first time to secure the edges...again with that Start/Stop button...very handy indeed as you can concentrate on keeping your edge nice and straight.
