    I am going to put them aside for a while and make something different. I love batiks but am getting too many. I am working on a civl war one now. But I love the colors in this one and the longarm quilting she did for me. Saved me from handquilting but they make me feel like I cheated. LOL

    Very pretty! It is so costly to have on long-armed and yet we call it cheating! I still do my meandering on my regular machine. Love what a long-arm quilter can do, but don't want to give up that much space in the house. Now if someone would show me her frame and how she hand quilts...........

    Gorgeous!

    And stop feeling like you cheated getting it longarmed. There is no shame in it and it is NOT cheating!!

    Thank you. The problem is, I have hand quilted so long and have so many, the finish texture is so different when longarmed and I am liking it more and more. ROFL. Glad it's not cheating, now I can have others done. Yeah............

    Not cheating! Collaborating with another artist. Just give credit on the label or in your records. Gorgeous top!

    Terrific. Who says it's cheating? That's just plain ridiculous.

    Love the batiks, you did a great job! And long arming isn't cheating, I'm no cheater!! LOL

    I felt that way when I went from a Longarm to a computerized longarm, but it takes as much if not more work to use the computer. I'm more mentally tired after I use the Statler.

    Thank you all for comments. I am not a cheater. Yeah..... I have more quilt tops ready to go. NOt busy right now but I send them as I can. Then all I do is bind them when I pick them up. Not paying 60.00 for binding I can do while watching tv. :).
