I've mentioned here before that I am taking classes to learn how to use a
Long arm quilting machine.
I've had my second quilting session and
I love it!!
The most challenging thing for me at this point is getting used to how
"loose" the long arm feels.
I'm used to having to pull fabric through my sewing machine
and the drag that the quilt has on the quilting.
With the long arm, I feel like I just have to touch it and it goes.
I've been saving another ugly quilt for practice.
What do you get when you combine fabric you don't like
with a boring pattern?
You get a great quilt to use for practice
when learning to long arm!
Some of the fabrics in this jelly roll has stars,
so I decided to quilt stars throughout.
Some of the stars are spot-on,
others.... not so much.
Using the long arm is becoming more comfortable for me,
but I am a LONG way from being "good" on it.
Practice makes perfect!
(Or better. :))
The next session has been scheduled.
