    Accessories Sew4Home Love

    The Janome Sliding Guide Foot manually adjusts to perfectly align with the exact distance you want. It has a perfectly balanced outboard guide you can smoothly slide to the right then lock into place. The Sliding Guide Foot was originally designed to fit all Janome 7mm and 5mm stitch width models with a top loading full rotary hook bobbin. Just recently, it became available for the 9mm stitch width models.

    Made by Maureen Cracknell

    Janome Artisan Maureen Cracknell made a Diamond Weave Quilt using a variety of prints from her Wild and Free and Fleet and Flourish collections. She separated red, peach and coral value prints from the ones colored navy, aqua and blue to reveal a fantastic quilt design.

    Maureen lives in rural Pennsylvania and all of her quilts are inspired by her beautiful surroundings. The Diamond Weave Quilt Block was made with the Janome Horizon Memory Craft 15000 machine. The block sews up quick to an 11" unfinished square, a wonderful size for making both small and large quilts.
