    My first quilt using my Handiquilter frame

    Hi Everyone,

    I just wanted to update you on my progress, using my Expression 2.0 on my
    Handiquilter frame.

    I just finished making this Bunny Quilt, and quilting it on my quilt frame.

    There is definitely a learning curve, and I had a few mishaps, forgot to put the
    pressure foot down, for one. But on the whole I loved fmq on the frame. With my
    arthritis, it was alot easier and alot less pain, with the frame.

    Even with the limited space, and having to stop and roll the quilt, it seemed to
    go much faster than fmq with my machine on my sewing table.

    I did a fmq stipple on this quilt. The photos don't show it really clear, but if
    you look at the white border, you can see it.

    This is a charity quilt for the church that I go play Bingo, they have a
    Carnival once a year to raise money, and they are going to raffle it.

    It is a D9P, but to downplay the pink in it, I added the applique bunnies in blue.

    I would like to Thank everyone for their help,it made it so much easier to setup
    and learn how to use the quilt frame system. The appliques are from "fatcatpatterns.com"

    She has awesome applique patterns. I have done 2 other quilts, for my grandkids, using her applique patterns.

    So, so cute! The colors are bright and cheery ... Bunnies are too cute! What I like best of all is the fabric you used for the backing. So perfect for this quilt! Great job! Thanks for sharing.

    Ohh! I love it. My mom had 3 children all born on April, this would make a terrific baby blanket. How clever to add the bunnies! Great quilting work too!

    I just love your quilt and I really like how the blue bunnies adds that something extra, that zip and zing. the colors in the quilt are quite nice and I also love the backing fabric. I have purchased a used handiquilter but as do not have it set up. Was it easy to learn the setup and the quilting. I am really anxious about this.
    Great job on your FMQ

    I want to Thank everyone for all your comments, its a real confidence builder. I have to be honest, when I started the quilt, I wanted to use up some of my 30's prints which I didn't like as much as the others I have. I used the D9P and when I finished it, I really liked how it turned out. This is the second quilt I make, that I started with fabrics I didn't care for, just wanted to use them up, and in the end I liked the finished quilt. You never know.

    And Pat, I learned all about the setup and use of the frame, from this group and Yahoo groups: Handiquilters, Homequiltingsystems and Pfaffexpression. My system is set up at 6', because my sewing space is limited and I usually only do tablerunners to twin size quilts. There is loads of info, photos etc. on these sites to help you, but you can email me if you have any problems and hopefully I can help you with what I have learned so far. This is a picture of my setup.

    Thanks again everyone
    Linda
