    First quilt off my new Long Arm

    This is a baby quilt for a friend's son. It was fun to make and my first attempt at quilting on the long arm.
    I am so excited to finally get to use my long arm. I have several more tops to quilt including a Queen size top.
    Thanks for looking.

    Nice. You'll just be spinning them out like crazy now that you have accomplished this.

    I really like that it is a simple design yet fun and the colours are great.

    I had an uncle named Wesley, born in 1910 and died a long time ago. I haven't heard of any boys named Wesley since then. And your quilt is very nice and it will be a wonderful keepsake for him.

    Great job! I am learning to long arm quilt, too. It is not as easy as it looks. You are doing a great job.

    I like it very much. Is the Name applique? I haven't tried that technique as of yet. A new longarm, how exciting! What kind?

    Yes, the name and the dinosaurs are appliqué. I did a blanket stitch around them and then outlined the name and the dinosaurs. There is a meander stitch on most of the quilt, but there are little dinosaurs on the bottom row and to the left of the name.
    I am having a great time with my ne wmachine.
