Do you remember this quilt?

That purple fabric is quilter’s lamé. I sewed it with a 1/4″ seam as we quilters usually do and after a few washes this is the result…

Looks to me like 5/8″ seams would have been in order here. Sigh…

The ideal sewing machine

I was really interested to get all of your comments and Annette I agree that your bobbin arrangement sounds exactly what I’m after, consider it included as an explanatory note to the list. Kate has added a knee presser foot lifter when she commented on Facebook too.  I wonder if Singer or Janome or Juki or Bernina is listening. It’d be nice wouldn’t it?
