My friend Lindsay came over today to try out the long-arm machine. We loaded her quilt, she quilted it, and here it is!
While she quilted I made a backing for the next quilt I wanted to quilt. I wanted to try out my Baptist fan groovy board and Lindsay helped me get it all set-up. (We also installed my new “Red Snapper” loading system that saved the normal tedious pinning onto the leaders. ) We both shared the quilting on this quilt, learning as we went. Here is the finished quilt top.
Lindsay and I had a great time and were thrilled to get two quilts quilted in approximately 7-1/2 hours! Wow. I am especially thrilled because I learned lots of lessons today, made mistakes, and will know next time what to do differently – and yet I got a quilted quilt out of the deal. Binding is next……..
