I am thinking that now is a good time to buy a long arm quilting machine. I have been hand quilting or sending my finished tops out to be done. Does anyone have a recommendation for which long arms machines are good ones? Its hard to believe that there aren't any in my area.

I know they're a lot alike, but here's the 2nd one

I decided to design quilts for my cousin's daughters. I have finished the first one which is a purple fairy quilt. My cousin asked for two of the same so I asked her if similar would be ok. I am starting the second one which will be pink and have a different fairy. I can't fathom doing the exact same thing twice...

I casually asked the guy what colors they did the baby's room in (she's about 4 months old). He said black and hot pink...I'm a scrappy kind of gal so I headed over to Pinterest to see if any black/hot pink quilt combos

You have all been great with helping each other out and being understanding that this probably isn't the most organized Quilt Along you have all been apart of...LOL This was the first time I was trying to do this and I have learned a bit along the way to make another one much easier and much more organized.
Anyway, on to what

I'm calling my latest quilt "Periwinkle Blue," named for a song by Doris Day and my favorite crayon color. It is finally done.
What a joy it has been to make this quilt.
It was the block-of-the-month project on Craftsy last year.
When it was completed, I had stacks of blocks that I wasn't really sure what to do with until I heard about Leah Day's free motion quilting
Here we go again maybe this time it will work, if not I give up at least for now.
These are my most recent quilts and I love them. Both were donated to raise money for worthy cause. Bigger for my foundraiser at my parish the smaller to support library at local woman and children shelter. I made them coudly and reversible - back is done as rag quilt.
