    I have inherited a quilting machine from my late sister, Faith. She asked me several times about taking it when she not able to use it but I was unsure but finally decided I wanted to learn to use it and get some of my stack of quilt tops finished.

    Never having used one it will be a learning experience for me and my husband, working together.

    I agree, she really wanted you to have it. You do know that you're going to be thinking of her every time you use it, right? I'm sorry she's gone, but she will definitely be with you in spirit. And you have a wonderful hubby to help you with it. :-)

    Congratulations, what a great inheritance.

    I love my longarm. To me, a longarm is something you will either love or hate. I can tell right from the start if I will enjoy something or not. If I don't find pleasure from it, then I don't want to waste time with it. When I met my first longarm, I knew it was something that I wanted. That want stayed with me for years before I got one. One of the biggest obstacles of owning a longarm is having the space to utilize it.

    I hope you enjoy your machine as much as I do mine.

    Thank you all so much. You are correct, I will think about her when I use it and when I do quilting since she got me started with it. Seven sisters and only the two of us stuck with quilting. I do miss her and know she is watching over us as we learn about her gift.

    Sorry for your loss. What a lovely gesture by giving you her long arm quilting machine. I wish you lots of joy quilting with your sister overlooking and guiding you. I'm sure she'll be there when you need her to be. Best wishes.
