get your quilts quilted at?...do you have someone that quilts them for you such as the quilt shop you might frequent etc....I imagine some of you all have a long arm and do your own...

I usually take mine to an elderly lady about 40 miles away. She has a very limited amount of patterns that she does but the price is right. In fact my parents are going that way tomorrow and they are going to drop off my scrappy quilt for her to quilt. I'll post a pic when I get it back.

I do my own quilting. I like the idea of doing it "all by myself"

I do my own on my juki. It works great and I love free motion quilting. It's relaxing to me.

I've found a gal that's very reasonable in Fresno, although 99% of mine are tied, I'm working on a quilt as you go for me.

I haven't gotten my longarm to work right yet so I sweet talk my sister into doing it for me, or I use my regular machine. i used to hand quilt but haven't for quite a while.

I quilt mine on my brother sewing machine. I fight it and it fights back sometimes, but we get R done one way or the other. :?

I have been doing my own but since I have taken a Machine Quilting class, I have decided that anything larger than a lap size will go to a pro from now on! I have tried free motion on a couple of small projects. I mostly do in the ditch or straight lines or follow the pattern on the fabric.
