    I have quilted 4 quilts so far, 3 charity quilts and one for a friend who was kind enough to let me practice on her quilt. The pictures are of her quilt. I did this over a month ago and was very pleased to see that Charisma quilted a Dresden Plate in a similar fashion on a later post. I was really quite worried if I had done it correctly. My friend loved it so that is what is important. There are mistakes but I learned that they seem to disappear after it's finished and washed.I chose to do pebbles in the centers, outline the applique',stipple around the plates to make them pop and had some fun with some feather motifs I made up myself. My friend chose high loft batting and it was a real challenge for my 3rd quilt but really shows the plates off. I think she pieced a beautiful quilt.

    Hey, you should be proud....just your third quilt? This is very good, you have great potential. If you keep this up we'll be fighting for the same customers. :)

    Thank you, I hope to be able to do this professionally but I think there's enough quilts to go around.

    You did a beautiful job.... I am also a longarm newbie - and it can be pretty intinidating - all that power and speed. I think you have learned a lot for being relatively new to the sport. Congratulations and happy quilting.
