    My first quilt using my Handiquilter frame

    Hi Everyone,

    I just wanted to update you on my progress, using my Expression 2.0 on my
    Handiquilter frame.

    I just finished making this Bunny Quilt, and quilting it on my quilt frame.

    There is definitely a learning curve, and I had a few mishaps, forgot to put the
    pressure foot down, for one. But on the whole I loved fmq on the frame. With my
    arthritis, it was alot easier and alot less pain, with the frame.

    Even with the limited space, and having to stop and roll the quilt, it seemed to
    go much faster than fmq with my machine on my sewing table.

    I did a fmq stipple on this quilt. The photos don't show it really clear, but if
    you look at the white border, you can see it.

    This is a charity quilt for the church that I go play Bingo, they have a
    Carnival once a year to raise money, and they are going to raffle it.

    It is a D9P, but to downplay the pink in it, I added the applique bunnies in blue.

    I would like to Thank everyone for their help,it made it so much easier to setup
    and learn how to use the quilt frame system. The appliques are from "fatcatpatterns.com"

    She has awesome applique patterns. I have done 2 other quilts, for my grandkids, using her applique patterns.

    So, so cute! The colors are bright and cheery ... Bunnies are too cute! What I like best of all is the fabric you used for the backing. So perfect for this quilt! Great job! Thanks for sharing.
    Live, Laugh, Love & Quilt!
