(Bag inspired by Chase's bag, here)
One of the things that impresses me most about my Juki is it's speed. So I decided to do a speed test on it and the best way I thought to do this was to do a little quilt as you go bag.
I cut a piece of batting roughly 25X25 (the bag didn't end up this big!) and started out. Now way back, when I made this quilt, each square took about 2-3 hours and they were only 14.5" squares.
The end result was, quilting a 25 inch square on the Juki took me about 3 hours (I get pretty wound up in fabric selection so this took most of my time!) compared to 2-3 hours for a 14.5" square. I have to say, I'm pretty happy to be able to quilt something 3 times as big in the same amount of time!
And if you haven't entered your name suggestion for my Juki yet, bring it on! There's still time!
