    Finished Lime Sherbet, with 95,508 stitiches!

    Wednesday, I finished quilting my sister's Lime and Black quilt top. I used my HQ16 long arm machine and used 95,508 stiches with black thread. I wanted the stitches to show on the back so I used black in the bobbin too! IMG_20140416_112707.jpg

    I bought the used HQ16 in Oct 2013 and told my sister she could send me her quilt tops and I could finish them for No Charge! good practice for me. She sent me 9 quilt tops! I have finished 4. I try new techniques and new gadgets. IMG_20140416_112743.jpg IMG_20140416_112722.jpg IMG_20140317_074745.jpg IMG_20131028_063915.jpg

    Very NICE! What a lucky sister, to have YOU finish her tops! And please tell me you did NOT sit and count all those stitches?!

      HOLY SCHMOLLY!
      That's SOME machine! I'm guessing you're planning a LAQ service, and you have an auto stitch count?
      Beautiful work, BB!

        LOL....oh gosh NO! the machine has a counter that I clear each time I start a new project. I am learning about how many stitches I get out of each bobbin, approx. 20,000. so hopefully I will be able to pre make enough bobbins for a project....I was so close on this one..............my last black bobbin ran out about 12 inches before I finished..........yes, I had to stop and fill another one, ugh!

          Thanks, I am hoping I can start a quilting service. it's hard to come up with quilting motif ideas that are RIGHT for each quilt. and yes, the machine Counts the stitches. this was my MOST stitches yet! this quilt measured 52 " x 70 "
