I have had my first quilt published in the winter edition of Modern Quilts Unlimited! I think I’ve posted this big guy before, but I’m waiting for my camera to be back so I can post pictures of the finished piece, but here’s a picture of the top:
I’m a new longarm quilter, which is one of the reasons I was ambitious enough to make something so big. And, as with all the quilts I make, I learned a great deal about longarm quilting and piecing this monster. First, longarm quilters hate wavy borders. And this quilt was essentially composed of nothing *but* borders, and many of them wavy. It looked great once it was finished, though, and I was able to reduce alot of the rippling with quilting, which I was very proud of when all was said and done. More on that in a bit.
