    First LongArm quilted project.

    I bought a used - new adventure to me - Longarm quilting machine a little over a month ago. I praticed quilting on just large pieces of muslin until I felt comfortable with the machine. I got tired of doing that so I decided to make a 36" x 36" table topper to quilt on. When I had the topper pieced and loaded on the longarm it sat for 2 days trying to get my nerve up to quilt it. Then I told myself "It's just fabric, so go for it". Here is how it came out. If you don't look too close it looks okay. LOL

    PS. by the way the pattern for the topper is a free one at Fabric Buffet :

    http://www.fabricbuffet.com/cgi-bin/Store/store.cgi

    Now onto doing a little larger quilt - I'm getting a lap quilt ready to load and see how I can do on it.

    It turned out beautifully. You do a better job, I am told, if you have a real quilt rather than a muslin. Have you noticed how nice and even your quilting looks.
