Now that we've mostly finished seting up Jeff's home office, I've gotten the opportunity to spend a few days playing with my new toy, a HandiQuilter Long Arm. I am loving it. OK, the learning curve is pretty steep, but I have mostly learned the basics and can do a decent edge-to-edge quilting project.
Yes, I'm going to be swimming in quilts soon, so I guess it's a good thing I started giving them away last year.

I'm going to have to learn to love binding.
It will probably be quite a long time before I feel experienced enough to quilt my really fancy quilts, like the Snake River and Finger Lakes Log Cabin quilts. For now, I am just playing with quicky scrap quilts until I can learn how to use the machine well enough to feel confident I won't mess something up.
If you have an interest in my continuing quilt endeavors, I blog about them at my crafting blog.
