I've been saving my flimsies until I was able to take delivery on my long arm. I had another lesson on Tuesday and quilted the black/red/white lap quilt with the instructor showing me how to use Pro-Stitcher. Really, he pushed most of the buttons and I watched and took notes. It took about 2 hours.
|I quilted this one with the Spring Petals pattern|
Rather than keep going and let unbound quilts pile up, I decided I'd better get started finishing them. By Friday evening, I finished all three! It takes me way too long to machine sew on binding, I'll definitely need to get faster.
I obviously set my One Monthly Goal way too low. Next up, I'm going to try designing quilting with separate borders.

I love, love, love your pink/yellow/white quilt. It's fabulous! Do you sew the pieces together in rows or make columns and sew those together?ReplyDelete
I used it as a leader ender project. I had a bunch of pre-cut squares I bought forever ago and never used. I cut them in half, then I cut out the squares from white yardage. Then I added some extra rectangles from scraps still laying around from my Rainbow Scrap Project. Was fun. I just sewed pieces together between other project.Delete
And in answer to your actual question, you sew either rows or columns, whichever is easier for you. I think I did it different on every quilt.Delete
Fabulous. All 3 are lovely.ReplyDelete
You are on a roll. Congratulations on so many finishes in a single week.ReplyDelete
Yeah, I'm really pleased with how quickly these are going. It will be fun to see how many I'll be able to get through this month.Delete
So jealous of your pro-stitcher!!! That's on my "win the lottery" list. Hmm, wait, don't you have to play the lottery to win? LOL. Everything looks awesome, have fun!!ReplyDelete
Oops, forgot to say, Chrisknits here!Delete
Yeah, I can already tell that I'm going to love my ProStitcher software. We've started our first custom quilting practice and it's going great.Delete
How wonderful to be immediately so productive with your longarm. I hope that it is a fun companion!ReplyDelete
No kidding. I didn't realize quite how quickly I would be able to finish quilts with ProStitcher.Delete
That sounds like a lot of fun and learning! Great quilts!!ReplyDelete
It is. Thank you. It seemed like sort of a crazy purchase at the time, but I am already loving it.Delete
Looks like your learning really quickly on your Long-arm!!! Good for you! And finishing off those quilts is a plus - way to go!ReplyDelete
