Today I took a long-arm quilting class at Emerald Garden and the owner then helped me put my little quilt on the frame and showed me how to quilt using a pantograph - a design utilizing a laser beam on a paper pattern.
The finished top - it's about 66" square.
It took me about 90 minutes from start to finish. Notice the bandaid box! The pins are so sharp and I needed two bandaids before I finished this project today. I think of all the time my Mom took to set a quilt in the wooden frame and then hand quilt it! I wonder if she'd be upset to think I've stepped over to the machine quilting side! It's the only way I'll ever finish one.
Rolling the quilt onto the next row.
All that's left is the binding! Should be able to do the hand sewing this weekend!!
