Yesterday afternoon I took a long arm quilting class with Linda Taylor. I have a short arm machine but the principles are the same. We had exercises in drawing the designs and then hands on practice . Getting sufficient hand control will take more practice but I learnt a lot and hope to improve my skills.
Linda sowed us a 1950s Wedding Ring Quilt which she had machine quilted with different designs in every ring. She used bright green thread so the design would stand out. It wouldn't have been my personal choice for quilting the top but it did show many different designs she likes to quilt.
Lots more fun to be hand before my next blog report. Lol
