    I have been working on getting this one quilted on the long arm for months. Obviously, I don't work on it very much! I haven't spent the practice time I should since I got the machine, have only done a half dozen quilts, I think. Pantographs are fairly easy to do just following the pattern with the laser light.

    I did all the sashing and the borders and now I'm on the blocks, 16 of them, with the first 4 done today. My stitch-in-the-ditch around the blocks isn't perfect and outlining the baskets isn't much better. The motif in the basket bottom is the worse of all! Really need to get this done so I can finish a quilt (with a pantograph) by Christmas.

    Just don't look too closely. :lol:

    I like it ok though it doesn't have some features that I now know are really nice to have. Like controls on the handles, the needle actually STOPPING when you stop moving, channel locks, a metal frame would be better and a motorized one would be ideal. Doing pantographs is fun and it would be nice to have handles on both ends instead of having to move them from front to back (and the control box).

    I need to get some cheap fabric and practice, practice, practice. A class would probably help a lot and I joined the Sharon Schamber network with tons of videos.

    This is a beautiful quilt. I think you are being too hard on yourself.

    You took an old fashioned pattern and used contemporary fabrics and made a fabulous quilt. You should be patting yourself on the back instead of criticizing. It looks great!!!!

    Check on this board for another set of handles with controls. I did and found a great deal! What kind of longArm do you have? I have a voyager and love it! Your quilt is beautiful.
