    My grandmother was an avid quilter and when she died there were 7 quilt tops all done and since I was the only quilter in the family, I got them. I have added borders on them all and quilted them for my grand children. I had one left and since my second daughter didn't have one I quilted this for her. Pieced by her great grandmother and quilted by her mother. Now tell me the truth. How does it look?

    Hard to believe it is your first quilt on your longarm! Looks to me like you have been doing it for years! Beautiful work, I am impressed!

    It looks good. You will be shocked in a year how much faster you will be and how much more confident you will be. You have to build up that muscle memory and you will be more accurate and faster.
