Q&A with johellen

Scheri Manson asked:
Really pretty. Did you use a sewing machine with stippling foot or a long arm machine?
johellen answered:
These were done on my Innova longarm, but I did plenty on my domestic machine before I had the longarm. Even if you mess up,if you quilt fairly closely, you can't see it once they are washed..
Oklahomarose asked:
Very nice!
johellen answered:
Thanks, everyone. I did use a curvy ruler to do the ovals. The wool batting gives a nice puff with the flannel.
Browneyedgirl asked:
VERY VERY NICE....HOW MUCH EXPERIENCE DO YOU HAVE W/FREE-MOTION QUILTING? garrard2009@att.net
johellen answered:
Thank you! I quilted a number of crib sized quilts on my domestic machine and lots of practice burp cloths. I have been learning longarm quilting on my Innova for about a year.
