In to time at all, I was convinced that I didn't need to visit any other longarm vendors that day! I had pretty much made up my mind before the show, but just needed to talk to APQS folks in person and have a few more questions answered!
I decided that the smaller version of the Millennium, Lenni, was the machine for me. Lenni has a 20" throat, stitch regulator, a laser and so much more! They took my photo next to the Millie and showed me where Lenni came from - see my hands surrounding the middle of Millennium? Of course the lense snapped when I blinked, but you get the idea of how happy I was! I also ordered a turbo bobbin winder and micro-stippler handles. I'm now just waiting for a shipping date!!!
The quilt show was great as well! It wasn't too big, and not too small! Vendors were set up in amongst the quilts which made for a nice break here and there! Tomorrow I'll show you some of my other purchases, and some more quilts. Here are a few of my favorite quilts!
I was blown away by the detail in this appliqued quilt! Another quilt with so much detail, and great use of color again!
I love stars --- and these colors!
Another stunning applique quilt!
More stars and more colors I love!
Dresdens combined with applique and lace - beautiful! Stephanie, I was thinking of you here!
This quilt is a Stack and Whack - can you believe it?
Dear Jane....you are incredible in Daiwabo shades!
Yup - you know why I included this one - great fall colors! What struck me more than anything else was the fantastic quilting on each of these quilts! You can click on any of the photos to see more detail. I wonder if I'll ever get this good on my Lenni?
