You guys, I am SO EXCITED about the wire cable track lighting that my husband installed above my new Bernina long arm last night! I LOVE IT! 💕💕💕
|Wire Cable Track Lighting Installed Above My New Q24|
The Bernina Q24 has plenty of bright LED lighting along the throat of the machine head itself, but I wanted the entire length of the frame lit up from one side to the other so I can inspect each section of a quilt as I'm advancing it on the frame. Bright task lighting enables me to find and remove any pet fur or stray threads before they get quilted in, and makes it easier to notice things like open seams that my hopping foot could catch in if I didn't see them ahead of time.
|Bright Lighting Helps Me Spot Problems Like This Open Seam|
That photo above with an open seam was my own kaleidoscope quilt, by the way -- I am not a perfect piecer, either! (When I see something like that as I'm quilting, I like to mark it with a hand stitched tailor tack in contrasting thread so it's easier to find it later when I want to hand stitch that spot closed).
