    First LongArm quilted project.

    I bought a used - new adventure to me - Longarm quilting machine a little over a month ago. I praticed quilting on just large pieces of muslin until I felt comfortable with the machine. I got tired of doing that so I decided to make a 36" x 36" table topper to quilt on. When I had the topper pieced and loaded on the longarm it sat for 2 days trying to get my nerve up to quilt it. Then I told myself "It's just fabric, so go for it". Here is how it came out. If you don't look too close it looks okay. LOL

    PS. by the way the pattern for the topper is a free one at Fabric Buffet :

    Now onto doing a little larger quilt - I'm getting a lap quilt ready to load and see how I can do on it.

    I think it looks great! I'm glad you took the plunge and tried it. You never know how well you will do if you never try!

    The pattern is cute, thanks for posting the link...love the quilt! (I'm not looking for mistakes...it's perfect simply because that's all I see! lol)
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)
