Long Arming

My generous long arming friend had me over several times over the holidays to work on these quilts. Can you imagine a person being kind enough to share her long arm setup?? I did meandering on the second two and the very beautiful camellia template on the first quilt:







These three quilts were all done during Little Quilts' annual Second Saturday Samplers and have been all sandwiched and awaiting quilting for...who knows how long :-). But they are done now and I must now do my part to get those bindings on. And maybe even labels, eh?

You must be really pleased to have these nearly finished. The longarm makes short work of the quilting, doesn't it?I love that first one, beautiful colours and blocks, and the quilting is the icing on the cake.
