After a lesson on Saturday I rented a couple of hours on the long arm and quilted one of the many tops in my bin. This mystery quilt from several years ago - not one of my favorites - was a good choice for a first project.
I'm not saying I'd never buy one of these huge machines because that always comes back to bite me in the ass but ...... I am, however, planning on renting the time to quilt some of my bigger projects. I was pretty slow setting up yesterday and it took 3 hours for a 56 x 70 quilt but next time will go much faster. Quilts can be easily taken off the frame in the middle of the project which will allow me to break up some of the bigger ones.
