    First time longarm quilting

    My BFF and I worked together on this quilt. She made the Dresden blocks. I did the multiple borders, yo-yo's, binding and most of the quilting. The wreaths on the Dresdens were computer programed.

    Twice as beautiful by friends! I may have some of that fab lilac material tucked away. Now my head is spinning on a new idea. Thanks!

    Be kind to yourself, by being kind to others. When you help others you help yourself.

    My beautiful daughter, Cheryl, gets the quilt. She gave Karyn, my best friend, a teacup Yorkie. This is a photo of Cheryl & GS Gabe telling little Cali goodbye. Cheryl is certainly "quilt worthy!"

    Looks wonderful. Hope my first experience with my new Grand Quilter will look and be that good. Your daughter and grandson are very good looking and the pup is adorable. Keep up the good work.

    WOW! You made feathers on your first longarm quilt job??? I'm impressed! I've had my long arm for a year now and I've been too chicken to try feathers. (pun intended!) You did a GREAT job!

    I have to confess that the computer made the feathers. This is the tool I used to make the figure 8's. Love the way I could draw what I wanted to quilt and then follow the lines.
