Taking the Longarm by the Horns

This weekend I had the joy of visiting with a long-time friend. Syma finished her first quilt, and asked if she could come over to quilt it on my frame.

Of course, the answer was YES, since that meant that she would be staying over the weekend. So, we loaded the quilt up onto the frame, and I ran interference between her and my longarm (who is now named Nellie, after the temperamental, spoiled little Nellie Oleson from Little House on the Prairie), handling the screwdriver while she did the quilting.

It turned out GREAT! If you look at the second photo, you can see the quilt design on the back. She took to it like a duck to water.

Here are some photos with her newly all-but-bound quilt. Syma is a “finisher”, so she’ll probably have it bound by the weekend.

Thanks for the great time, Syma!
