XP2 and its optional wide table for piecing and quilting

by Lynn Swanson

Yesterday I talked about how the accurate ¼” piecing feature and the automatic height adjustment features on the new Brother Luminaire XP2, are a helping hand when piecing quilt blocks.

It’s time to assemble the blocks into a wall hanging, but before I do, I’ll change out the accessory unit that comes with the Luminaire XP2 for the optional wide table. I love having the extra work surface the wide table provides, for piecing and when I’m quilting my quilts. The wide table enhances the use of the wide 5″ x 13″ arm to needle space of the XP2.

1. With right sides together stitch a separating border strip to the top and bottom of the applique block.

2. With right sides together stitch a pieced block to the top and the bottom of your applique block.

3. Use the guideline marker we talked about yesterday to assist you with achieving an accurate seam allowance.
