Longarm #2

I went back twice to my friend's house to do some longarming on this sampler quilt:



Brutal Reality paid a visit as I discovered that freehand feathers and meandering are quite easy to do compared to other longarm stitcheries. I spent yesterday taking out a section that was quite nasty. Whew, glad to get that out. I did the quilting in a pretty pearl grey thread; absolutely love how it goes with the smoky stripey sashing. Now it's time to do some stitch in the ditch on my home machine on the patchwork blocks. Think Progress.

Lucky you to have such a generous friend. If I had a longarm I'm not sure I would let anyone touch it. Your quilting looks pretty good to me. Is that what you ripped out?

I agree, very generous friend. You are making me want a longarm so bad :o(

What a treat to be able to try out the machine set up and test out different stitches.
