    Default My first large quilt top is finished...

    This is the quilt top I started a few weeks ago for my niece for Christmas. I'm taking it to the Long Arm machine tomorrow and quilting it. I'm so thrilled with it!!!

    That's gorgeous! Are you going to quilt it yourself on the long arm? I can't find anywhere near me that has that facility so I've always done straight line quilting at home.

    That's SO cute! What a happy vibe it's sending my way!
    If at first you DO succeed, try not to look so surprised.

    Thank you so much!!! Yes, I'm going to quilt it myself on the longarm. I'm going to do it tomorrow, so I'll post the quilted version when I get home.

    What type of long arm did you purchase? I've been studying u-tube demos and anything else I can find to figure out what's best. Are you happy with your purchase? I've seen one frame that looks fairly portable and attaches to a folding table. Don't know if I will spend the money to get a long arm machine. I'm wondering how well I could do with my own machine using a quilting frame for home machines. Any input? I'm not hearing too much buzz on this forum about long arm quilting so I'm assuming most of us don't have them.

    I love it! I am going to try the raw edge applique on a doll quilt this weekend. Did you use heat and bond? I love the fabics too

    Your quilt is so pretty. It will be beautiful when quilted. Are you renting the longarm to do it with. I know we have a couple of shops that let you rent time on them. I still like hand quilting the best. And it is so relaxing to do. It feels so good to be snuggled up in a quilt someone has made for you. It the ultimate security blanket! lol You just feel so loved under a quilt. Good luck with it. Hugs, Jan L.
