Jelly Roll Jam II is the first quilt I quilted on my long arm quilting machine. Although I'd use long arm machines in the past, I'd never sewn using pantos. This is my first! I feel it took way longer than if I'd done my traditional edge to edge designs I'm comfortable with. However, this is the first technique I learned and I'm proud that I was successful. This quilt top was a made in January 2015.

I quilted a healing quilt for my sister that I forgot to take a picture. I experimented with polyester batting, the thicker kind. I can honestly say, "I don't like polyester thick batting." So the third quilt I finished is Noodles. I used a ruler and stitched in the ditch, my first custom quilt, and used a new to me spiral quilting design in the pink borders. I matched the thread so well that you can't see it from the front.

I practiced on the Noodles quilt so that I could use an adaptation of the spiral design in the rows on this Autumn Braid quilt. I stitched in the ditch, diagonal loops, and spirals in the print rows. I had fun with this one.
I have four more tops quilted that I'm working to get binding completed. Stay tuned for more fun!
