...so I finished mom's quilt and thanks for the comments on the last post!
It's evening here so the pictures are a bit dark...but I wanted to say a bit more on how the quilting went.
My lines are anywhere from a little less than an inch to about a 1/4 of an inch. I don't measure I just eye ball it. And I turn my speed way up so I can go pretty fast across the quilt, that speeds up the process. My thread did break a few times on the way back. For some reason longarms don't like to go backwards. My machine does pretty good but I still have breakage every so often. If you don't have channel lock you can use clamps. If you can find a place to clamp your machine to the the base that sits on your up down rollers than your machine won't move up and down. And I did add my binding while on the machine...so now I need to just stitch it over..by hand or by machine.
The quilt is pretty heavy...having used 2 batting's, but my mom should love it in the cold winters in Salt Lake City.
Love ya mom!
