LAQ Session #3

Last week I went and played with the Longarm machine again
and finished another quilt.
I had wanted to work on a larger quilt,
but had another commitment that afternoon and was afraid
I wouldn't have enough time.

This little quilt only took me an hour and 45 minutes to quilt,
start to finish.
It seems like it takes longer to get the quilt loaded onto the longarm
than it does to quilt it.
Of course, my quilting is basic at this point!

This pattern is super easy and quick,
especially since I had a layer cake to use.

The quilting started off a bit wonky,
but got better as I went along.
I might need to make an extra long backing
and put a piece of fabric at the top on which to practice,
before getting to the actual quilt.

 This will go in my
"waiting to see where it belongs"

I love the backing fabric.
It doesn't match the top at all,
but it's pretty.

Speaking of pretty...

I was able to snap a photo of this moth on my Lantana this morning.

Happy Quilting!
Happy Friday!

A lovely quilt and well done with the quilting. I like that 'waiting' pile. I have one of those too.

What a lovely quilt you have made.

Nothing wrong with basic quilting, the important thing is that you are enjoying doing it! Great photo of the moth.

Great finish, delightful fabrics and very nice quilting! The extra at the end sounds like a good idea. I have had a few false starts on quilting and taking out the stitches was not fun. I looked again at new machines, the sit down quilter with 18" throat area, this time at the Juki TL-2200QVP-S. Still thinking!

Your quilting photo looks great. I don't see any wobbles. That makes for a nice quilt.

That is a beautiful moth. It looks more like a butterfly. Very pretty.
