    Here are a few more quilts I've quilted on my long arm. These all belong to the same person who graciously allows me to practice on her quilts. She requested colored thread this time. It was fun but unforgiving of mistakes. The first two have fleece backing which wasn't a problem. I free handed them. The first is my take on the neuvoux heart from a video on U-tube with some spirals added in. The second I just made up. The baby quilt is backed with flannel. I enlarged a panto and made some changes. It was hard to keep it matched and there are some flaws. I learned a lot though. I definitely enjoy free hand the most.

    Love the green/red one!

    I don't know about pantos, but if you go off the line a little, it won't matter much.

    I have a Voyager 17 with a Hinter-burg stretch frame. It was 3 years old when I bought it gently used. I love it. My sister-in-law used to do long arming as a business and I asked her about this machine before I bought it. She said they are good machines. I can tell you that the customer service is awesome. I had a problem caused by me and they were great, laughed and talked me through the solution.

    You are doing really well. I think if I ever get the FMQ perfected it will be so much fun.
