My Knuckles are Dragging From This Long-Arm Quilting Project

This is the largest quilt top I’ve ever loaded onto my Gammill long arm quilting machine.  My machine is self-guided, not electronic, which means that I guide the machine and walk it along the 14′ table as it’s stitching, using a laser to follow the pattern.

Largest Quilt

My customer worked on piecing this 10′ x 10′ quilt top for almost two years and then chose one of my more complicated patterns for the quilting. I’ll post a picture of the finished quilt in a few days.

A history of carpal tunnel in both wrists and rotator cuff surgery has slowed me down a bit, but this puppy is gonna be done by next week ’cause I’m heading to Atlanta then a road trip to my cottage in Michigan for some R & R!

    • The best part is the “reveal” when the quilter sees the completed quilt … the transformation of their work from pieces of fabric sewn together into a “real” quilt.
