Meet another machine-quilting-addicted-person! Susan's been making quilts a long time. Lots-o-quilts, we might say. Susan usually shares her joy of making quilts with someone else- that some one being whoever gets to quilt it for her!
Susan chose to freehand the quilting rather than using a pantograph. She got through that learning curve pretty well! As she progressed through the quilt, her quilting got pretty adventurous. She was successfully creating new shapes by then end of the quilt!
