    Couldn't resist a detail of this amazing machine quilting. The quilt itself was kinda boring so I won't bother posting

    The show was great. I accidently deleted the pics of my own quilt tumbling tabbies but you guys have already seen that one. It just looked so nice hanging there I am sorry I couldn't include it as well. I didn't win any ribbons but that was ok I had a great time and really enjoyed chatting with some people who were admiring my quilt.

    There was a long arm vendor there and just damn I WANT one of those!! The brand was called Innova and they are made in Texas. What a nice machine for a great price! I have a CD maturing next month that would just cover it! Tentatively asked DH and all he could say was "that's a lot of money". I don't think he wants me to get it. I am sure he is probably right in today's economic climate I should probably hang on to that cash and just start socking away savings for the longarm. It would probably take me 5 years to save up for one, which would probably be the wiser thing to do. I figure I can work on my machine quilting with my Bernina and send out any big projects I have until I can get my own longarm. :roll:

    Thanks for taking the time to post all the pictures. I never get tired or bored looking a quilts.

    I too would like to purchase a longarm and just can't bring myself to take the money out of the bank. I have a bank on my dresser that I have deemed my longarm fund and just throw in something every month. I have about $700 in the kitty but am still a long way off.
