    Well -- here's the first quilt off my new longarm!!!!! NO computer -- ALL freemotion!!! To clarify -- I have been longarming for 1 1/2 yrs -- this is off my NEW machine!

    The technique is like the pattern I have called "not your grandmother's flower garden"...with variation.

    The colors are really gold, cream and brown and the backing is a brown batik. The thread is varigated (same colors).

    It was a BLAST to do!!!!!

    But that's not the first time you've quilted on a longarm, is it?

    Very, very, very nice. Like, terrific nice.

    I LOVE those center flowers.

    Wow - I have had a longarm for over a year and I cannot come close to your level of work. If I recall correctly, you have an HQ Avante - I have the same machine - this gives me hope that if I continue to practice I can be as good as you. :)

    Wow! If this is your first one, what will you do next. It is beautiful and the quilting looks perfect. Surely doesn't look like a first one, (but, of course, I'm thinking about what my first would probably be like) Thanks for sharing. Keep going. Doing great.
