That sure is a big frame. It makes my 96 inch top look small.
I'm so lucky to have found Tanya Croft, a local long arm quilter. When I say local I mean she's only 5 minutes from me. I used to send my quilts to someone I never met. We'd talk over the phone but that was it. With Tanya when I took my first quilt to her she showed me lots of patterns and from that we chose a pattern. I also learnt we have similar ideas about what suits what so now I leave the quilting decisions to her. And boy oh boy, Tanya has out done herself this time with a beautiful floral curly whirly pattern that looks as though it was designed just for this quilt!
One thing that surprised me about seeing the my top on the frame was how tightly it gets wound on. I mean soooo tightly that it made me cross my fingers that my stitches hold. :)
It wont be too long before I get my quilt back and I'll take lots of glamour shots to share with you and I'm sure I'll be taking lots of the gorgeous quilting!
