Quilts for Boston - Update 6/20
I got one quilt quilted in the long arm machine @ Bits N Pieces. I really love going in here and Liz was so generous to offer me use the longarm for free to quilt another "Quilts for Boston" quilt . I quilted 2 different designs and tried something different in one of the blocks. For the white background I choose wood grain design by Angela Walters from her first book. And for the center of quilt I stayed with good old stippling. My comfort zone with long arm is still at very beginner level. I had mixed feeling about the wood grain but seem to have good control over stippling. I know many people hate stippling but it is good beginner FMQ design and helps to master other designs later.
