FMQFriday with Leah Day - July 12th

I had finished this quilt top last year in fall. And has been sitting in the closet for a long time. I finally got to quilt this on the longarm this week. The fabric line is Indian Summer by Riley Blake designs.

I was finally able to figure out a setting on the long arm to get my quilting curves back. I still love quilting on my DSM but I have so many quilt tops it would take me for ever to quilt them at home. That's the reason I love using the longarm to get things done faster, but I still would like them look nice.

Soon I will be sharing up tips on getting started on the longarm. Sometimes its just a matter of figuring out what settings works best for our quilting skills and the FMQ design.

Happy Quilting!
