Last Saturday was an AWESOME day! For two reasons...
First, I got to meet someone amazing!
That's right folks, That'sMelissa, of Happy Quilting, my new "real" friend, as well as a quilter extraordinaire and the Bee Mama of my Beejeebers Quilting Bee!! She is super sweet and fun! It was a real pleasure to meet her!!
And where did we get the opportunity to meet? At Let's Quilt! The local Long-Arm Quilting place! We were both able to rent a machine and learn how to quilt with a long arm!!!
Long Arm quilting is SO totally fun! The owners were helpful and patient. We learned how to load the quilts onto the machine (which was the hardest part and took forever!!) and off we went.
Melissa flexed her awesome muscles and went for total free motion quilting (and it turned out aMAZing!!). I went with the pentagrams - a pattern that you can follow. Totally worked for me and make my quilt look amazing!
I really, really wish that I had a cutting table this large at my house!! ;)
All in all, it was a wonderful experience, and I totally plan on doing it again (and again, and again...)
Here's to trying new things!!
