Imitating the grown-ups!

Happy Monday, everyone!  I wish you a sweet day!

I am a home machine quilter who had aspired and am still aspiring to quilt more than just in the ditch with straight lines.  In other words, I wanted to quilt like the “grown ups” (those who quilt with longarm machines).  With practice, I think my imitation effort is starting to pay off just a little:

I had to redo my Sunbonnet Sue quilt for “Quilter’s World” because the original one just didn’t turn out the way I wanted it to.  I hadn’t minded the re-do at all.  I am so much happier with the result from the second attempt:

One of these days, I would love to try long-arming, but for now, I have to say I am quite content with just using my home machine.

This quilt is scheduled for the June 2010 issue of “Quilter’s World”.  Stay tuned for more pictures once it is officially published.

  1. I just love that fabric and of course Sue! Your quilting is awesome, long arm machine or not, it looks terrific to me! I am just starting to do the quilting on my little machine and I am not sure I will get that good.

  2. I can’t begin to imagin how you do it! Nothing can stop you from quilting. I love to see you in action and hope to learn something from you. You are expert quilter that for sure – Hugs Natima
