Holiday Starrfire - Quilting Video

While I was quilting Holiday Starrfire we took some video to show how it was done. We remebered it today and got it uploaded so I can now share it with you. I would like to point out that my ruler technique isn't the official one. I don't have a stitch reglator on the machine so I just reduce my speed a little and cheat. It works for me, at least with that ruler it does (yes this is one of the ones I was trying to remember the name of last week). I suppose I really use it more like an extra guide and bump the foot with it.

The needle of the machine isn't moving as slowly as the video might suggest. If you look carefully you will see you appear to get several stitches for one stroke of the needle. This is caused by the machine running too fast for the camera to pick up the motion. The camera also wasn't keen on some of my fabrics. I guess they are kinda bright and high contrast.

Anyway, enough of me jabbering. Hope you enjoy the video. If you would like me to film more let me know and I am open to (clean, quilt related) suggestions for future videos.

Why can't I see any video?

Ferret said...

It may be a flash issue. Can you see a circle with either an f or an arrow in it?

Thanks Ferret, I've now watched it at home. Serves me right for using a hotel 'puter!!

I really must finish sorting the timing on my little Nolting and get quilting again! It's very theraputic.

Deffo more videos!
