Two finished quilts in a week

I am so satisfied with two finished quilts in a week. I would never finish the quilting on these two quilts so fast if I had to quilt them on my domestic sewing machine. I just LOVE the longarm machine, and look forward to finish all my tops in a few months. 

The first photo is a quilt I made for the charity project. I finished the top a while ago, and I'm so glad to be able to deliver the quilt at my local quilt guild meeting next week. I used a pantograph pattern, and I'm pretty satisfied with the result.  

The next quilt is the one I worked on this summer. I used the Bliss line from Moda, and I just love these colors, even if I'm a big fan of the japanese fabrics. This one is also quilted using a pantograph pattern. The loops is not at all perfect, but at least I got a lot of practice. Finished is better than perfect, right?

I've been working on the longarm machine just a little bit this weekend, but I'm hoping to practice some more freemotion quilting as I move on. 

Wish you all a great and creative weekend

Love the quilts, and the colors. Where did you find the pattern for the second quilt? said...

Begge teppene ble kjempefine. Hadde vært moro å få sett den long-arm maskinen din live en gang.

Hello Laila,
your quilting looks good to me, it is a lot better then the quilting I do on my machine. I have a spider web Quilt waiting to be quilted, but I just can´t get my self to start doing it.
