Thanks. The pattern was from a book on Zentangle. Mandy inspired me to try something completely different, so instead of drawing these, I tried quilting them.

Mandy, great video..look forward to learning how to use my machine. Ok dumn question, I have ordered my longarm, it will be delivered next Sat. I want to get some practice pieces ready to load as they will deliver and set up and show me how to load a piece on my new machine. How do I put together these smaller pieces like your birds to practice on a big frame? Newbie here.

Hi Newbie; You don't need to load an actual quilt, no matter how small or large. The first thing I loaded on my quilt was a bolt of muslin, cut in half. I loaded one half as the backing and one as the top with batting between them. I quilted my signature and went from there to other stitches, different techniques, anything I wanted to try, just to get used to how my machine worked. When that was full, I bought a couple of baby quilt panels and quilted them, then went on to charity quilts. The birds were pieces of muslin I framed with scraps of black and white fabric. Mount one large piece on the machine for backing, lay some batting on it and then lay these down on the batting side by side. You can make lots of pot holders or place mats side by side like that and not have to individually load them. When done with the quilting, cut them apart and bind. Have fun!!
