So many people now have a mid or longarm that these quilts are getting more common. Most shows still have categories for hand appliqué, hand quilting, machine pieced/appliqued and DM machine quilted AND machine pieced professionally long arm quilted. A professional long armer is anyone who is paid to quilt for others but there are people who own their own long arm and are not professional. How many quilts have you seen hand appliqued and hand quilted? Most quilters have so many ideas and quilts they want to do that a long armer is a way to check some off the bucket list.
