It’s just too cold outside to hang this for photos. This quilt is definitely Enzo approved. After I removed it from the frame I laid it on the floor face down for photos. Before I could get my camera ready Enzo had already struck a pose. After my photos I put him outside, threw the quilt over the couch for front view photos. He came back in and while I was adding wood to the stove he had claimed his spot again, love this guy.
Enough about him. This quilt is full of feathers, some look nice, some I am not happy with but I am still learning. The backside of a quilt is always my favorite to look at, like I said, I laid it on the floor face down first. Technically I’ve been quilting on a frame for a little over a year. But if you subtract the 6 months I owned a pos long arm from a no name company I haven’t been quilting very long. The first LA was full of mismatched parts and there was a constant tension issue. At first I thought it was me, the manufacturer wasn’t any help, so I set out to find others who also owned this machine. Trust me people when I say take negative reviews to heart. The tension issues have since been fixed by a group of persistent ladies, again with no help from the manufacturer. Fortunately though I had an opportunity to purchase a hand guided Gammill with a 12′ frame reasonably and I just could not pass it up. There have been no issues with this machine and I have quilted several, large and small quilts with it. Now that I have the correct tools to work with I can only improve from here.
We live in an earth home and the only windows are southwest facing. Its cold and dreary outside today so taking photos was near impossible. But I was and am so excited to finally finishing up I had to share it with someone. The weather will warm and the sun will eventually come out from behind the clouds and better pictures will follow. Stay warm.
