I finally did it - with more than a little encouragement from the hubby, I bought a long arm quilter with frame. I did stop short of the robotics and software. The original plan is/was to upgrade to that a year or two, forcing me to learn how to use this from the ground up. But I am having so much fun with it as is, I may just forget the robotics. We'll see!
I've been practicing on scrapes and on the Row by Row Experience Quilt that's been sitting around two years now. This week I decided time to put it all together. I purchased a "Layer Cake" of Moda fabric called ""Reel Time by Zen Chic". On Tuesday I pieced together this quilt top:
And a few days later, I quilted it with the Baby Lock Crown Jewel II - so much fun! Look close enough and you'll see many "mistakes" but I'm a beginner and it's not going to any contest. From a distance as a whole, I think it looks so cool. And incredibly in just a couple of days, I have a finished lap quilt. That's so cool!
