Bo Ho Modern quilt

What was your source for this quilting project? Other What are you most proud of? The machine quilting I did on my long arm because this is the first project I've done on a long arm. I was a little intimidated to begin but then I just relaxed and started having fun with the quilting. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Try to pair up some solid colors or small prints from your stash to the larger prints to minimize such a busy design.

Q&A with 2626shirl

Joanne Leclerc asked:
Wow, you did a great job. Can't wait to finish mine. We are renovating so my sewing room is unavailable. I am miserable!!!
2626shirl answered:
Thanks. Oh too bad. I hope you will be able to get at it soon. I had so much fun quilting it on my new longarm. I used variegated thread on the top and matching thread on the bottom. I bound it with strips. I like how it turned out. Can't wait to see yours.
Joanne Leclerc asked:
Wow, I just saw the quilting close up, it is great, Congratulations again and you are a Lucky one to have a longarm quilting machine, maybe one day!!!
2626shirl answered:
Thanks, Yes, I'm very lucky. I've waited a long time to have one. I found that my free motion quilting on my DSM helped me to be able to quilt on it right away. I just had to relax and go for it. Shirley
