I stood over my sister (who doesn't quilt) while she sewed this together.  I just quilted it recently and  I know she is giving it away to friend who had a baby.



For all the machine quilters out there, I use quilter's dream select batting, Superior So-Fine Thread, and the spirals looks nice and even thanks to my pattern board.  Freehand fill in between.  All in all, a happy quilt!  Take care, Carla

Did you do this on a sewing machine - you said a pattern board - so that's on a longarm/quilt frame, right?  I absolutely love the spiral quilting.  It looks fantastic!!

This is a cool tool if you have a stand up quilting system of any type, even the ones where you set your sewing machines on the frame.  You hook up a stylus to your machine back wheels and the stylus fits snugly into the pattern board.  Let me search for a picture to help explain it. 

Ok, here is a picture of a Handiquilter set up, which is a midarm machine showing the stylus and the pattern board:



So basically this helps the quilter in situations where they need to be more exacting.  It is also fast and easy.  Does that help?  Thank you for your nice comments, btw.

Okay - finally someone that can answer my handiquilter questions!  I have been wanting a frame for the longest time and have been torn between a handiquilter, gracie ii or a proflex! 
And you have a mid arm?!  Lovely!  What kind of machine do you have?
Do you keep your handiquilter assembled all the time?  I don't have the space to have one assembled all the time so I need to find one that is easy to assemble/disassemble so I can store it while not in use...

I really really really want a quilting frame!!!  I was hoping to pick up a few jobs from Caron this year but they have not been buying designs lately so I haven't been able to get the dough raised to get it  Cry
