quilty quilts

I'm not completely done with this quilt. I just couldn't wait to show you!
I still have to complete the binding...I don't know if this is just a bad picture or what but it almost looks too quilted? I did an all over stipple since that is the only one that I am good at on the long arm.

I want to learn how to do straight quilting on the long arm but I think there is a specific ruler needed for it and none of my local quilt shops have them. I have seen them online and some are $20. while others are $55! Why? I need some feedback on what kind to get....


And this quilt is completely finished now... There are better pictures of it in my previous post.

And the back is just a plain pink with a little detail... I can't believe how well the quilting is showing up, remember, I'm just learning and the swirls is a new design I'm trying. It's all freehand that is probably why it doesn't look the best but I still love it!


Thanks for looking! Check out the other links below...

  2. Both quilts are terrific! I do love the top quilt...its just lovely and doesn't look overquilted at all. (I worried about that too on the log cabin quilt I'm showing today.)
