Laundry Service - NOT!

I stitched the letters of this little wall hanging free motion. I thought the fabric was a good fit with it's appearance of water droplets.
I used my industrial Bernina 217-50. This is a fun! machine that does not have feed dogs. It has a knee lever that swings the needle from straight stitch to 12mm! And is FAST!!! Woo Hoo!

Now here's a tip for free motion monogramming. As the needle can only swing left to right, you can turn your hoop 45 degrees to the swing of the needle to simulate calligraphy.
