It's a "Jem" of a machine...

Hi all, forgive me for the silly pun in the blog title, I couldn't resist.
I bought myself a little Janome 'Jem' sewing machine this week and I'm as happy as can be with it.  It's my travel machine and it's as light as a feather, well, a 12 pound feather, but it is much lighter than my home machine. :-)

My new baby, a Janome Jem Platinum 760.

I took it to a quilt-along last Saturday and put the finishing touches on my son-in-law's cowboy quilt.  I know I've posted here before saying this quilt was done, but it always seemed to need just a little something more.  This time I mean it.  Really.  For sure.  It's now a queen size quilt, so there will be no more borders added!! cowboy quilt all done!  A friend suggested I enter this in the Calgary Stampede quilt competition.  I have to say, I hadn't even thought of that, but I just might do it.  I would say the theme is pretty spot on, wouldn't you?  ;-)



  1. congrats on your new machine Mary-Frances

  2. I'm sure people at the stampede would love this quilt! Go for it.


I love hearing from you - thanks for leaving a comment.
