    Got this loaded tonight, it's for my son and his fiance. I don't remember the name of the pantograph, it's sun, moon and stars, and really dense quilting!! It's going to take me a few days to do this one but, that's fine as long as it's done by Christmas. :D

    I am starting to enjoy the longarm more. I didn't do anything on it for months because it was just SOOOOOO bad when I tried FMQ.

    I like that pantograph design. It would take just the right quilt to use that one on.

    It appears using the pantographs suit you very well. You're doing a terrific job! Once XMas is behind us, practicing everyday for 10-15 minutes, just running freeform patterns will help to improve your quilting immensely. Before you know it, you'll be a master quilter :)

    Your doing so well - and that quilt is turning out really pretty! I'm sure they'll love it!

    You are ahead of me with frame quilting. I haven't learned to even load a quilt on my frame yet. It seems that every time I get to have time I get frustrated and feel overwhelmed :(

    It looks like you have the hang of it! It is looking wonderful!

    "Wow, glad i'm not the onlyone. I bought a GrandQuilter and frame several months ago. Still have the same quilt on it and am going to take it off and start over. I get sooooo frustrated. After Christmas I am going to conquer this task.

    Very pretty and I'm sure they'll enjoy it.

    I've got to get my cataracs taken care of. When I first read this I read, "I got loaded tonight for my son and fiance...." I'm thinking, why would someone tell everyone here that they got loaded???? Why would her son and his fiance want her to get loaded???? Luckily I backed up and re-read the post. LOL

    It took many times of loading a quilt before I felt comfortable with it. It's not so bad now and I can get it loaded fairly quickly (to me anyway).

    I have done a little practice on scraps and I actually did better on the practice than when I tried it on a quilt. Nervous, I guess. I need to keep the tail ends of the backing on after a quilt if it's long enough and just put some scrap batting and fabric on it to practice after each one.

    I wish I could be home working on it. I did another repeat of the pattern this morning... since I was passing by the room on my way to get ready for work. :)

    Got a little more done this evening. I'm on the third row of panto and my thread broke for the second time on this row so, I'm done for the night. It was going so good, it didn't mess up once on the first two. :x

    I wish I had a partner like that. I think I'd rather make the tops. :)
