One Quick Quilter!



I loaded this bright and colorful baby quilt onto Sundance last Friday so that it would be ready for my daughter-in-law's arrival on Saturday and her first machine quilting lesson. She arrived before 9 AM; I had her do a few walk-throughs over a panotgraph before we threaded Sundance up and switched her on. Leigh Anna, the new quilter, was done before noon;(seriously, it took longer to load this than it took her to quilt it!) she took to driving the machine and quilting like a duck to water. She did an absolutely wonderful job, she's a natural; born to quilt. Lucky me: I'm realizing we have one quick quilter in the family, this could come in VERY handy. Lucky Lynnleigh: she's the recipient of one lovely quilt made by her Mama to grow up with and love! Win-win!!

Life is Good!

Hi there, I'm so very impressed with her quick learning and also with the finished product. I don't machine quilt but my daughter does-on a regular machine and she makes it look so easy. How fun that you have a long arm machine.
Hugs, Noreen
