Results of the Longarm Road Trip and more
Here is last weeks focus project. A UFO transformed to a top! Complete with a scrappy binding. I need to come up with the backing. The border is flat but, I was too lazy to press it before the pic! LOL!
We had soo much fun!
First, we checked out what Handi Quilter had to offer.
The HQ Sixteen and the HQ Eighteen Avante. If my budget and space would allow ...I would have bought the Avante.She is fourteen feet long.Lots of bells and whistles! When we were told the price...I think hubby was in shock! LOL
I just chuckled to myself...He hasn't seen a Gammill yet!
Then after a quick lunch we headed to Leicester, NY. I knew this stop would be more in the budget.Keep in mind.. I already have a Proflex Frame that is less than a year old.Mama just wants more quilt area. She is tired of having to advance the quilt every 4.5 inches.
We arrived at Bailey's. I wanted to see this Home Quilter.Chuck and his sons build these. We test drove the 13 inch.It seemed very sturdy. The machine also comes in a 15 inch and 17inch.
We went home and mulled over our options. After alot of debating..I called Chuck and ordered the 17 inch. Wahoo! Now, mama will have at least 12 inches of quilting space!
I hope to have it by Mothers Day!
You can check out the Machine HERE.
Happy Weekend Everyone!
