So I maaaay have played hookey from work at some point and then maaaay have taken a longarm quilting class at a local quilt shop. I maaaay have LOVED every minute of it and maaay be obsessing (at this very moment perhaps) about how I can get my hands on a LAQ machine of my very own.
I quilted what I’m calling Faux Feathers (I couldn’t seem to get the shapes right on the “real” feathers) …
… something the pattern we were working off of called “Water” (though it looks more like spirals and scribbles) along with some stars, a heart and some curly cue meandering along the perimeter of the star block (this is the back of the quilt).
Then I did some pebbling and guess what? I can! This style is nearly impossible for me on my home machine but with the LAQ it was easy peasy.
And last but not least, here are my “Roses”. Sort of a spiral beginning with some petals around them. Kind of a fun design, right?
Now I’m just left with one question. How do I justify (and afford) my own???
