    Here are pictures of the latest customer quilt I did on my Notling Fun quilter.

    Green fabric is heavy textured upholstery fabric! I was amazed at the ease it was to longarm! The seams on this quilt are larger than the 1/4" normal and being so think at the seams the quilting had to be done only in the blocks.

    The customer received this from her mother or mother in law who made it in 2 days!

    Customer is not a quilter, so also wanted me to sew the binding on the front and press it to the back. I also pinned it to the back to make it easier for her to hand stitch.

    Quilt patterns used were digital patterns I used with my Side Saddle computer program.

    Thanks for looking.

    I LOVE it. Easy to use! The only thing it doesn't do (besides make me coffee) is that you can't design your own patterns and save them to the computer. BUT you can alter any other pattern and save it with a new name.
    I save patterns I used per customer/quilt so it's easy to do repeat patterns on the quilt block to block.

    It was a lot less expensive than other computer programs out there.
