    quilt back from a local long arm quilter.
    I had almost forgotten what it looked like...... I took it to her to quilt on May 23, 2010 !!

    Wow - it looks very nice but did it get lost? I know some LA's take their time but I think I would have given up after 6 months or so - but it is really nice.

    You did a great job...and tons of patience! I would have been chomping around if I had to wait that long!

    Looks like the quilting was worth the wait anyway! You are very patient. Your quilt is very nice. Not sure exactly why, but it is comforting to me, just from looking at the picture. Perhaps next time give the LAQ a deadline? lol.

    It's beautiful!

    I brought two quilts to my LAQ last week and she told me it would be at least two months. I bet that really means three or four months. Both of them are gifts. :-(

    You are truly a patient person. I would have been knocking on her door after about 3 months wanting my quilt back. However, she did a beautiful job quilting your lovely quilt.

    Just a question, didn't the fact that you took them to her to be quilted mean that you were ready to have them quilted?

    You both did a beautiful job. Did you chose the quilting pattern or is that left up to the quilter?

    I guess that was two questions. :)

    WOW it looks great. That is such a shame that the longarmer would take that long. Quilts can be lost and forgotten about in that much time. :thumbdown:

    some of the girls around here are way backed up. Usually they don't want the responsibitlity of keeping your quilt that long. they call you IF they know you are ready to have a quilt quilted. They have a Q and you get marked on the calendar. That is IF you have called her to get in the Q. Your quilt looks great and love the pattern chosen for the quilt. It was worth the wait.

    your quilt is gorgeous!!! I love the colour combo. I was especially admiring the rust colour, as I have been looking for this particular colour for a while now. Any idea who makes it and where I might get it - I usually buy online. Thanks in advance

    That is just beautiful. She did a great job of quilting it. But what a long wait.
