Pods (commissioned by Janome UK Ltd.)

Specifically commissioned, ‘Pods’ is designed to showcase the features of Janome’s new M-Series computerised mid-range sewing machines. Although completed last year, it is only now that the machines have been launched here in the UK that I can publicly share some imagery. ¬†Over the years I have created many quilted pieces for Janome but ‘Pods’ has to be one of my favourites and I really enjoyed making it. I particular liked using the serpentine stitch – stitched here using a thick thread in the bobbin.

‘Pods’ as featured in one of the new Janome M-series promotional shots – doesn’t it look great?
