Long arm quilting

Before Christmas I quilted a few quilts.

This one is a donation quilt from my quilt guild.

I got out Leah Day’s book and tried this petal design, though it’s tricky to long arm quilt it since it was meant for the domestic machine, but once I got a rhythm going, it was okay. (it’s always fun to practice new designs on donation quilts!)

It's always nice to have another design to play with, I did one similar on table runners and maybe on a quilt too this past year, just fun to try something new.
