So I did the math. If I pay someone else to quilt all the large tops I have sitting around, it amounts to $7000 in quilting. I could buy my own machine for that price, and then I'd never have to pay a quilter again. I'm thinking it might be time to take the plunge, especially considering some other projects I have in mind.
Tell me, would you buy a longarm machine?

Giant Star, a set on Flickr.This was one of the easiest quilts I've ever made. I absolutely LOVE it (no pun intended)! The background is from Amy Butler's Love line, and the star points are all amy butler as well.
I purchased the amy butler sheets that match the background a few years ago, but I didn't know what quilt I wanted to make. When I saw the tutorial for this quilt on "In Color Order" I knew that this would be perfect, and that it would go quickly. I finally finished it a few weeks ago, and now I can use my beautiful sheets!
The backing is pieced with a stripe of amy butler, and two other floral pieces I found on sale. I thought they were valori wells, but I think that might be a lie. :/
There has been little progress on other projects this week. I have been trying to finish a wedding quilt, and I did finally get the borders on that last night. Hopefully I'll be able to post on that soon. The wedding is August 25th, so I should be able to share after that.
Happy Wednesday everyone!!
