I went to a quilt show today. There was a vendor there helping his wife. While making my purchases, he told me his wife was a long armed quilter that quilted for people. I told him I was trying to quilt my own. He said that was fine on small items like wall hangings and table toppers but that if I did not have a longarm machine I could not quilt a quilt on a DSM(guess I didn't get the memo). I said, well actually I have quilted half of a 96x96 quilt. He said, well you must have had lots of practice and be really good. I said, well actually I have just started and haven't had a lot of practice. Oh well.
