More Machine Quilting

I just finished quilting the last block of my Arcadia Avenue quilt. So excited!

Just a little close up of the quilting of that last block. Phew! Blocks are done!!

The only quilting left is the black fabrics around the edge of this quilt. It's difficult to see in this picture. You may be able to see the pins. The black areas between the pieced blocks have already been quilted. This is the easy part!

I have 2 borders left to quilt on my Patchwork Swoon which I am quilting on the longarm. I unexpectedly purchased a longarm this past fall. At the time, I had just started to quilt Arcadia Avenue. My goal has been to finish Arcadia Avenue so I can concentrate on the longarm. Although I've been machine quilting for a few years, the longarm is so different. I'm making progress but not as quickly as I had hoped. I think part of the problem is I'm still quilting on the Sit down quilter. I'm hoping to use the Sit down for small projects and use the longarm for most everything else. I'll sell the Sit down if I no longer use it.. 

The longarm is a lot of fun but it involves a whole new set of skills. Getting there! I've been using rulers as well as free motion quilting. Getting there one small step at a time!!
