Wow! This has been such a fun adventure with Baby Lock! I’ve so enjoyed seeing the wonderful features of Miss Destiny detailed with such fun projects by each sewist so far, and I’m really excited to see the rest – how about you? It’s my very great honor to be this week’s Love of Sewing Challenge participant, and I can’t wait to show you how much fun I’ve been having with the Destiny II.
I’ve learned so much already: How to color sort multiple designs – wow, THAT’S a game changer! The fact that the Destiny II has TWENTY-FIVE buttonhole options, and the Digital Dual-Feed system has DIFFERENT feet that snap on and off just like regular feet… woo-hoo, that’s amazing! How beautifully the IQ Designer creates one-of-a-kind machine embroidery designs. (I mean really nice, approved by my picky self, ha!) And, oh my goodness, I had no idea there were so many cool applications for the Sensor Pen and Guide Beam – just go watch Joi Mahon show you those; your mind will be blown wide open. Plus, I think even I can handle that perfect quarter inch seam now (ahem…this from the lady who thinks seam allowances are optional…) as well as resizing all those pretty fonts in Miss Destiny and picking my favorite motifs from the FOUR HUNDRED FORTY-TWO built-in decorative stitches, whew! To top it all off, I think I may have to make a quilt, because that free motion stitching open toe foot that Amy Ellis demoed is just calling my name. So much fun stuff to do – y’all don’t mind if I take the rest of the year off and just play, do you? 🙂
You can see all the projects on Baby Lock’s Sewlebrity Love of Sewing Challenge page – watch the videos, get the instructions, and make the pretties!
Stay tuned this week while I show you how much fun you can have making continuous border designs with Destiny’s Connect Tool. I promise you will never be intimidated about connecting designs again, because Miss Destiny’s great big brain and extra set of eyeballs make this the easiest thing you have ever done!
