    First Custom Quilt Job

    I should start out by saying that I got my long arm for Christmas this past year so I am still learning. I have done well with pantographs and wanted to venture out. A friend of mine gave me this night and day quilt to work on. My hubby bought me a ruler set for our anniversary (in exchange for car parts for his 64 Chevy truck - anyways I tried it all out and was very happy with how it turned out. I did use an idea that greenfairyquilts showed on her sight. She is magnificent and I enjoyed trying something out she taught. I hope you like it.

    The quilt is beautiful and so is the quilting. I am glad that you are feeling adventurous enough to try this. Very nice.

    You are living my dream. You did such a good job. I really like those diamonds in the border with the little cury-q's. I have a Juki & frame, but dream of a long arm. Are there classes that you take (besides practicing on your own) or books to learn from? And I'm in awe of the Green Fairy, too.

    You did a beautiful job - I have a longarm too - it looks so easy until you try it - its very difficult (at least for me it is) so I congratulate you - you look like an old pro - I love Green fairy too - I look at her quilts and just dream to have just a little bit of that talent. Looks like you are going to be a great long-armer...

    Very pretty. Your quilting looks great and I think it gives the quilt movement.
