    I just finished the binding on my "Little Trip to Bali" baby quilt for my dd's baby shower (a week from this Saturday.) I quilted it today using a long arm machine -I wasn't expecting to, but last week at our local shop hop one of the shops demo'd the long arms and I signed up to rent time on one. The whole process took me so much less time from set to to the actual quilting - and I had a great time! I would be still working on the fmq if I hadn't rented the machine. My daughter had also requested books at her shower - I decided to make one of those fabric panel books (also a first for me), just to be sure I wouldn't duplicate a book someone else might give her.

    I love the baby quilt, thanks for sharing

    now you need to get busy and make more quilts so you can use the long arm

    I was thinking that - I had so much fun doing it, I started thinking about different designs to try. I was almost disappointed when I got to the last bit and realized I was done!

    You did a beautiful job with this (love the book too...that brings back some special memories). I am guessing there may be a long-arm in your future!

    The quilt is beautiful. My wish for everyone is that if they like to do the quilting, that they have their own longarm. I know that is impossible. But I would love it for those who would enjoy it. When I first was on a longarm, I found it four times faster than my little machine. Your freemotion is beautiful. What a great idea to make a fabric book. And it is about elephants to go with your quilt, that is so cute
