Long Arm Quilting

For the past couple of days, I've had the pleasure of learning about LAQ, hands-on.  It's quite the process  to load the 3 fabric layers on 3 rollers, add edge clamps, and side tensions,

program the computer with the pattern of your choosing, (Curves and Leaves),
set the parameters for the design,

 and to then watch her go!   Fascinating!

It's way more involved than this brief description, but I don't have time to
tell all I've learned.
 Can't wait to see how the design looks on the solid flannel backing.

And I might have an opportunity to one day do some free-motion quilting with this puppy!


  1. Wow! Such a fascinating process and how lucky you are to be able to learn how to do it! I can see you with your own set up down the road!


  2. Cis, this thing is unbelievable but mind boggling what it does- the quilt turned out awesome !!


Thanks for your comments!
