Dots and Stripes quilt and new sewing machine

Meet my new "playmate", JUKI F600 ! I have been thinking about a getting a new machine which can do more than just straight stitch like my 'beloved' JUKI TK98.

I collected her last Friday night just before the store closed. I used her over the weekend and am very happy with her features, quality and easy to operate not to mention the price.
The main purpose for buying her is to do more machine applique.  There are so many quilts I want to make that have bigger applique pieces which can be done by machine a lot quicker especially using wool.

I finished a top for a single bed last week. It will be going to Lucinda (my daughter).
I have a lot of strips and dot fabrics and as I like bright fabrics what better way to use them up; well there are still lots of fabric left...

 And a bit of fabric shopping at my favourite fabric shop Darn Cheap Fabrics...
I have 2 projects in mind for these; one I already started..
