Long Arm Quilting
Now you in the US may not know this but we in the UK don't tend to send our quilts out to be long arm quilted. Why is that? I don't really know. But my friend Katy sends some of hers out to be quilted and frankly, they look so good that I've been thinking of doing the same. So I wanted to ask you all what you think. Have you had any quilts long arm quilted? Did you have an all over design or custom quilting? Were you happy with the results? Any tips on sending a quilt to be long arm quilted?
Has anyone had a bad experience of long arm quilting? Are any of you long arm quilters and would like to chip in with advice, ideas, suggestions, thoughts?
If you haven't, do you have any questions about long arm quilting you'd like answered? Any questions at all, however stupid you may think they sound. I have a long arm quilter on hand to answer them so that we can find out more and, when I send my next quilt to be long arm quilted (which will be a first for me) I will report back and tell you how I got on and answer any questions you may have about the whole process.
